Speaking literally, what’s next for Danny Garcia is an ice pack and a whole lot of aspirin.
For the second time in a year, Garcia was outworked by his opponent and ended a fight looking the more battered man, only to have his hand raised in a majority-decision victory.
The long awaited matchup between Garcia and Lamont Peterson was the main event on the Saturday, April 11 Premier Boxing Champions card, live on NBC.
During his post-fight interview, when Garcia was asked if he would be interested in a rematch with Peterson, Garcia responded by saying he was interested, but at the full 147 pound weight limit.
This all but confirms Garcia’s desire to vacate his titles and move up to Welterweight for his next fight.
Waiting for the current lineal Super Lightweight champion is a jam-packed division, which includes some of the most talented fighters in the sport of boxing today.
Boxing followers are now wondering if the Garcia we saw against Peterson will be able to hang with the bigger names of the 147 pound division.
