Barclay's Center, Brooklyn, New York, April 11

Between the two of them, Danny Garcia (29-0, 17 KOs) and Lamont Peterson (33-2-1, 17 KOs) hold three 140-pound titles, but none are on the line since they're fighting at a catch weight three pounds above the junior welterweight limit. It appears that they are using each other to test the waters and break into the lucrative welterweight division. But it nevertheless remains a highly intriguing bout provided both fighters come in as prepared and focused as they would be if their belts were at stake.
Kudos to Steve Farhood for maintaining an objective perspective on the fight while his co-analysts Ray Leonard and Marv Albert were so blatantly biased towards Peterson.
