After his highlight reel KO of Brandon Rios, Danny Garcia is once again a player at welterweight

Last night in Las Vegas, former WBC welterweight champ Danny Garcia iced a game (if faded) Brandon Rios in fine, highlight reel fashion. The ninth-round KO “Swift” scored is arguably the most impressive, certainly most eye-catching, fight termination of his since his destruction of another faded former champ in Erik Morales, who Garcia KO'd in 2012 (forget the hatchet job Garcia did on the hopelessly over-matched Rod Salka in 2014).
