DANNY GARCIA is the new WBC welterweight world champion, the crown Floyd Mayweather once held, after outscoring Robert Guerrero at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

All three judges, Rey Danseco, Max DeLuca and Steve Weisfeld scored it 116-112 for Garcia.

On the undercard Pennnsylvania welterweight prospect Sammy Vasquez continued his unbeaten run, now 21-0 (15), after Aaron Martinez could not come out for the seventh round with an injured arm.

Heavyweight prospect Dominic Breazeale picked himself off the canvas in round three and won in six after Amir Mansour also sustained an injury.
