  • Danny was not a big welterweight.

    That’s all I have.

    Oh, I will add that Angel is a loyal and dedicated father.

    • Bob Carson: Yes and Danny is going to be an even more so, a not big super welterweight

  • Danny is stocky, I don’t see an issue with him at 154 lbs at this stage of his career. A very good, but not great fighter, shows good poise, one punch power, and a solid jawline. Jose Benavidez looked absolutely horrible his last fight, where he gained a draw. Balance was off, punches were coming from odd angles, it was weird. PR vs Mexico, should be hotly contested, but Garcia will prevail. Tough test for Russell, as Barthelemy is seasoned and awkward. Don’t now much about who Kownacki is fighting, but we know he’ll bring the ruckus. Decent night of fights.

  • If he’s going up to 154 to stay, Garcia – Fundora would be a lot of fun!

  • Kownacki is going right back in against a fighter with a good record in Demirezen. Does that mean his camp is sure he is ok after his last two fights that ended in 2 KO losses?
