DANNY GARCIA, a former two-division champion, returned from a WBC title defeat to Shawn Porter in September with a seventh-round stoppage of Adrian Granados at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California tonight (April 20).

Garcia, 35-2 (21), dropped Granados three times en route to recording the TKO win and, with the victory, has put himself right in the mix for fights against the likes of Keith Thurman, Manny Pacquiao, Errol Spence Jr and Terence Crawford, as well as a rematch with Porter.

Granados, 20-7-2 (14), was deemed a solid opponent for Garcia based on his heart and durability but was no match for the heavy-handed American and found himself outgunned from the outset. Dropped twice in the second round, and once in the fifth, the Mexican was eventually stopped for the first time in his career just after the halfway mark.
