The Queensbury Rules:
Over 12 rounds, what many expected to be a foregone conclusion got interesting down the stretch – with junior welterweight Danny Garcia taking an unexpectedly close-ish and hard fought decision over Zab Judah at the $1 billion Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Showtime Saturday night.
The action may not quite have lived up to the constant promises of blood at various pre-fight press conferences, and there weren't any street corner melees or stomp-outs, but fans got just about what they bargained for, plus an extra dash of salt from Judah.
In the live co-feature, middleweight Fernando Guerrero toughed out a good six-plus rounds against Peter Quillin before succumbing to the larger fighter's punching power.
The tension inside the Center in was palpable as one of the city's own, Judah, was able to find more success against the potential star in Garcia than most other opponents have in the last little while.
