Danny Garcia will knockout Mauricio Herrera

Unified junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia announced Friday that he will fight Mauricio Herrera on March 15 at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Puerto Rico.

"When I heard who I was going to fight, I already knew a lot about him, I'm a boxing fan,” said Garcia, 25, who knocked Amir Khan onto Queer Street in July 2012. “I knew who he fought, who he beat, what trunks he was wearing. He's a tough fighter, not a big puncher, but he tries to outwork you. At the end of the day it's a different story when you're fighting a guy like me.”

Garcia (27-0, 16 KOs) last exited the squared circle in September after universally outscoring Lucas Matthysse.

Initially, Matthysse (34-3-0-1, 32 KOs) looked solid and was handling Garcia.

However, “Swift Danny” closed Matthysse’s right eye in the seventh round and the tough Argentinean was unable to rally from the wound.

Conversely, the 33-year-old Herrera (20-3, 7 KOs) most recently earned a unanimous decision over Miguel Angel Huerta on September 27.

As evidence by Herrera’s paltry knockout percentage, “El Maestro” is handcuffed with feathery fists.

Accordingly, expect the tough and aggressive Garcia to relentlessly attack Herrera from the opening bell.

“Not a big puncher,” Mauricio Herrera will fall to Danny Garcia within seven rounds a couple of weeks from this evening.
