July 14th, 2012. On this day, then undefeated Danny "Swift" Garcia takes on the speedy Amir "King" Khan with the vacant Ring Magazine Junior Welterweight Title on the line. Also, Garcia and Khan are defending their WBC & WBA 140 pound titles respectively.
Prefight records; Garcia 23(14)-0, Khan 26(18)-2.
Going into the fight, Khan hold notable wins over the likes of Andriy Kotelnik, Gairy St Clair, Marco Antonio Barrera, Zab Judah, Paul Malignaggi & Marcos Maidana. Garcia on the other hand had beaten former World Champions in Kendall Holt, Nate Campbell & Erik Morales.
Even though Garcia had an unblemished record entering the fight, but he was considered to be unproven at this juncture. This is due to the fact that neither Holt, Campbell nor Morales were in or near their primes when Garcia triumphed over them.
Thus, a convincing victory by Garcia would be a huge statement for him.
In the first 2 rounds, Amir Khan dominates with his superb speed; connecting with sharp, crisp punches between Garcia’s wider shots that often missed the mark. At the end of the 2nd round, Garcia was slightly cut above the right eye.
In the 3rd round, Khan was able to maintain his momentum for a little over 2 minutes but with about 30 seconds left Garcia landed his vaunted “no look” left hook flush on Khan’s neck, scoring the 1st knockdown of the bout. Khan beat the count, but was clearly held up with spaghetti legs.
With about 10 seconds left, Garcia presses on the attack and Khan survived but barely able to make it to his corner.
As the 4th frame began, Garcia wastes no time and went for the finish on a visibly dazed Khan; flooring him for the 2nd time with right hands to the head. Somehow, Khan managed to rise to his feet.
Fighting on sheer determination alone, Khan somehow managed to mount a comeback and even manage to land some significant blows in a great display of his fighting heart. However, his courage could only take him so far as Garcia hurts and drops him for the 3rd time.
Khan got up again, but his legs are clearly gone as referee Kenney Bayless waved it off.
Hope you guys enjoy this simple highlight of a very good fight back in 2012, and remember to SUBSCRIBE!
