GARCIA DESTROYS MORALES IN 4

Moments ago, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, unified jr. welterweight champion Danny Garcia destroyed four-division world champion Erik Morales, landing a devastating left hook that crumpled and nearly put the future Hall of Famer through the ropes. Morales looked sluggish throughout the bout, as Garcia picked him apart with his faster hands. A right hand at the end of the 3rd round rocked Morales and had him staggering back to the wrong corner. The end came at 1:23 of round 4 when Morales got hit with a blistering left hook that he never saw. Relive all the action in FightHype's round-by-round results.
