In front of a raucous, sold out crowd at the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden, Terence “Bud” Crawford retained the WBO super lightweight title by defeating Philadelphia’s “Hammerin” Hank Lundy by 5 round TKO.

Ready to engage, Lundy looked to work his way in inside behind his own strong jab…

Danny Garcia Vacates WBC Light Welterweight Title

PHILADELPHIA, PA — On Thursday, Danny Garcia announced he will vacate the WBC light welterweight title, a title he’s held since March 2012, and move up to the welterweight division. The announcement isn’t particularly surprising since Garcia hasn’t fought at 140 pounds since March 2014 and has opted to stage recent bouts against undersized opponents at negotiated catch-weights.

Following that bout, Garcia fought twice more, against Rod Salka and Lamont Peterson (142 against Salka, 143 against Peterson) and didn’t defend the title in either performance. As a result, had Garcia not surrendered the belt, the World Boxing Council would…
