Former Two-Division Champion Danny Garcia Battles All-Action Adrian Granados on Premier Boxing Champions on FOX

Former two-division world champion Danny “Swift” Garcia will battle hard-hitting veteran Adrian Granados in a 12-round welterweight bout that will headline the live prime time event presented by Premier Boxing Champions on FOX and FOX Deportes on Saturday, April 20 from Dignity Health Sports Park (formerly StubHub Center) in Carson, California.

The Last Call for Brandon Rios

This weekend in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada, former lightweight world champion Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios (34-3-1, 25 KOs) will take on Philadelphia’s Danny “Swift” Garcia (33-1, 19 KOs) in a crossroads match up. The bout is a WBC (World Boxing Council) final eliminator, giving the winner a title shot against Keith “One Time” Thurman (28-0, 22 KOs). Rios, this weekend against Garcia has one more chance to deliver another classic encounter. This weekend is the last call for Brandon Rios. One more shot at glory could put him back into boxing relevancy.

These Styles Don't Make Fights

They say that “styles make fights.”  The classic example is boxer versus puncher.  Can the boxer be slick enough to outmaneuver the puncher?  Can the puncher move forward and catch the boxer?  We are often told this matchup will create an exciting night of boxing.  Unfortunately, when the skills are too widely mismatched, it is a disservice to the sport as was the case in HBO’s mid-December card featuring WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders v. David Lemieux and Cletus Seldin v. Yves Ulysee Jr. It will most likely be the case again on February 17th when Danny Garcia faces Brandon Rios.
