Two undefeated boxers took to the ring tonight in the Barclay Center in Brooklyn New York.
The fight started off fast with Thurman coming in looking for the knockout, but Garcia fought back. It seemed as if Thurman was taking the majority of the beginning rounds with his precise punching and dodging the punches thrown by Garcia.
Garcia’s plan from the beginning was to work the body. In a previous fight Louis Collazo was able to land power punches to the body of Thurman which hurt him. As the fight continued the crowd started to boo as the two fighters slowed the pace of the fight down and tried to out point each other.
The three judges scored the fight 116-112 Thurman 115-113 Garcia and 115-113 Thurman. Keith Thurman is now the unified welterweight champion of the world and still undefeated.
