IBR on Hannibal Boxing


“There is less room for argument among the second tier, and even less after the main event at Barclays Center on Saturday night, where “Showtime” Shawn Porter won a narrow, unanimous decision over Danny “Swift” Garcia. Porter and Garcia are good fighters; they made a good fight. Alas, it was a fight regrettably short on hurt; slow-motion replay and some explanation would be required to identify the one or two moments where either man was concerned about landed leather. But the fighters punched purposefully and effectively enough to swing momentum, responding to each other’s successes with a spirit befitting their trade, and if that makes only for a good fight, well, who doesn’t enjoy a good fight?”
