Danny Garcia loaded a strike.
Ivan Redkach evidently must have loaded a treat.
Garcia feasted on Redkach to the song of a 12- rounded consentaneous choice in their welterweight battle at Barclays Center– yet not prior to points took an unusual turn.
In a scene evocative Mike Tyson munching on Evander Holyfield’s ear throughout their 1997 battle, Redkach little bit Garcia on his left shoulder throughout a bind in the 8th round.
Redkach evidently also called his treat.
“He bit me,” Garcia claimed. “He claimed, ‘Mike Tyson,’ when he attacked me. I claimed, ‘Ref, he bit me.’ I believed I required stitches or something.
“That’s my first time ever getting bit in a fight.”
As for the real use hands, Garcia’s stress as well as power required Redkach right into combating a protective design. Redkach invested a lot of the resisting up or versus the ropes as well as Garcia took complete benefit. He opened up a cut over Redkach’s best eye with a hook in the 7th, after that surprised the Ukranian with a shot in the 8th.
” I believed the umpire [Benjy Esteves] was [going to] quit it due to the fact that I seemed like I was penalizing him,” Garcia claimed. “He’s a ruffian. he hung in there. I intended to obtain the [knockout], yet I really did not obtain it. I seem like I boxed wise, as well as I seem like that’s what I required. I truly desired the knockout poor, yet I’ll approve this.”
Garcia, that is starving to encounter larger challengers next off, enhanced to 36 -2, while Redkach went down to 23 -5 -1.
He can be lined for a battle versus Manny Pacquiao, the WBA welterweight champ, or Errol Spence Jr., that has the IBF as well as WBC belts yet has actually been recouping from an auto mishap last October.
“Either [Spence or Pacquiao],” Garcia claimed. “Either of those fights I would like to have. My style looks great with both fighters.”
