Danny Garcia defeats Robert Guerrero, picks up welterweight title

Danny Garcia picked up another title, this time in the welterweight division, via a unanimous decision victory over the very durable Robert Guerrero at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, California on PBConFox Saturday night.

Garcia (32-0, 18 KO) was able to weather the early onslaught "The Ghost" brought in the first four rounds. But starting Round 5, Garcia took control all the way to the final bell. He's so precise with his counter punching. He continuously landed the overhand right and right hook to Guerrero's head.

Garcia, 22, of Philadelphia, was sharpshooting, while on the defensive end. He constantly moves to avoid the left hand of Guerrero in the southpaw stance.

Guerrero (33-4-1, 18 KO) made his final push through in the final minute of the twelfth, the barrage was not enough to turn the fight around. In the second half of the fight, Guerrero looked old and obviously tired as he kept on eating hard after hard shots from the more precise Garcia.

Three judges at ringside have it 116-112.
