GARCIA HOLDS OFF LATE RALLY BY JUDAH TO WIN UNANIMOUS DECISION

Moments ago, unified jr. welterweight champion Danny Garcia held back a late rally from a game two-division world champion Zab Judah, scoring a unanimous decision victory after 12 rounds at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Garcia appeared to be in total control early in the fight, breaking Judah down to the body and rocking him on several occasions, even dropping him in the 8th round. Judah, however, fought through the adversity in front of his hometown fans, coming on strong in the final four rounds and even stunning Garcia with hard shots of his own. In the end, however, Garcia had already built up a big enough lead that allowed him to sweep the cards with scores of 115-112, 114-112, 116-111.
