The Premier Boxing Champions is at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with a full night of fights that see the main events air on FOX and FOX Deportes.

The broadcast on FOX starts at 8PM Eastern TIme / 5PM Pacific Time and kicks of with the Heavyweight 10 round bout featuring Dominic Breazeale (16-0) taking on Amir Mansour (22-1-1).

The preliminary card has six bouts in all and reports coming in at the Boxing Channel indicate that the fights have started.  

The Lightweight ten rounder between Alejandro Luna and Alan Herrera saw the referee step in and call off the fight between the eighth and ninth round, deeming Herrera unfit to continue.

With the broadcast starting at 8PM, several of the "preliminary" fights will serve as filler bouts for the broadcast should any of the long fights end quickly.  The other bouts will go down after the FOX and FOX Deportes broadcasts bring us the main events.

The results are in coming in. Check back often for updates as we take you to the broadcast main events.

In the first feature bout of the broadcast an action packed fight was promised between Heavyweights Amir Mansour and Dominic Breazeale, and it was delivered.  The contrast in size between the 6'7" Breazeale and the 6'1" Mansour made for a compelling contrast, as Mansour was the aggressor from the get go.

Breazeale was trying to establish distance and box, but he was having trouble keeping Mansour at bay.  Mansour broke through and scored a knock-down in the third.  Though Breazeale did not look particularly hurt, he was falling behind on the cards.  Early in the fifth, Mansour put Breazeale down again.  After getting up, Breazeale seemed to respond and both fighters closed the fifth round fighting hard.

It is then that father time showed up for Mansour.  At 43 years old, he has to be commended for the shape he is in and for the energy he put out in the fight, but he was still sitting on his stool when the bell sounded for round six.  The referee called the stop to the action shortly afterwards, giving Breazeale, the victory on the scorecards.  Early indications are that Mansour may have a jaw injury.

The highly anticipated welterweight bout between undefeated Sammy Vasquez and Aaron Martinez was next.  Both men came out a bit cautious, and the first two rounds saw most of the exchanges end in clinches and tie ups.  Martinez was talked to several times by the referee, and it was Vasquez who was moving forward and trying to cut off the ring.  The fight was turning into a battle of attrition, as Vasquez slowly gained confidence and started punishing Martinez.  Martinez was more and more defensive, fighting out of a shell.  At the start of the seventh round, Vasquez looked surprised the fight was stopped, as Martinez' corner took off his gloves after he suffered an arm injury.  An observer ringside confirrms it is a left elbow injury that Martinez appears to have suffered.

The main event, for the vacant WBC World Heavyweight title is next.  Guerrero entered first, and he looked stern and serious.  Garcia too was focused, by the pink leopard prints his entourage was wearing was a little disconcerting.

The clash started and from the opening round it was clear that it was going to be a tightly contested battle.  Guerrero looked rejuvenated at times in the early, landing on Garcia and taking Garcia's punches well.  For his part, Garcia seemed to be frustrating Guerrero, landing with precision without causing a lot of damage.  The mid to late rounds saw Garcia establish himself better, continuing toland with precise shots and mixing in bigger punches that rocked Guerrero's head back. Guerrero never stopped come forward, but as he wore down he missed with his punches more and more,  In the end, the judges gave the fight to Garcia with three identical cards of 116-112.  Garcia is now the new WBC World Welterweight titleholder, and talk will begin almost immediately of a potential re-match for Garcia with England's Amir Khan.

Despite the win, Garcia has left open the question of whether he has left some of his power in the lower weight classes.

Garcia-Guerrero scrap was closer than those crooked scorecards. And Mansour was blasting Breazeale outta there. Punch-count stats oughta GTFOH! That ex AmerKano footballer stunk da joint up. And lucked up because of Mansour's broken jaw, not father's time. Holla!

Yep, I had The Ghost winning the first 5 rounds, first 4 clearly and edging out the 5th. Steve Farhood gave Garcia all the early rounds just SHOWS corruption, one of those rounds The Ghost had Garcias legs buckled and him almost going down in the corner with a clear winning round he falsely gave to Garcia. It was either 7-5 for Garcia or 6-6 draw, PBC is a corrupt motherfucka and boxing is just losing all steam.

The ghost did a better job in this fight than in his last 4 fights. Garcia was marked up yet again.

The card was pretty good.

Disappointing ending to the heavyweight fight. Did they show the punch that hurt Mansour?

It Garcia fights the winner of Thurman Porter I would have to put his as the underdog. Will he be matched as an underhood in his next fight?

Garcia seems to be in a lot of fights were the scoring is hotly debated among-st fans. For example, fans were all over the place on the Peterson fight (I for one did have Garcia winning and doing so handily).

In this fight, I had it even after six rounds at 57-57. I see a lot of people though Guerrero swept the first four rounds but I disagree. I saw Garcia's punches harder and cleaner at times and thought though close that his harder cleaner punches carried some early rounds. Guerrero also won some rounds on being busier and frankly landing more.

The second half of the fight the Ghost disappeared. His activity dropped and Garcia began landing more sharp combinations.The rounds in the second half of the fight were much easier to score and most fans reached a consensus that Garcia won the majority of rounds 7 thru 12.

On my card, I had 116-112 for Garcia and the same as all three judges whom I believe got it right on the money.

2 hard punches per round dont beat 12 scoring shots, unless you are hurting your opponent...


Maybe you should rewatch the Peterson fight, he boxed circles around Garcia, it was humiliating at times...

I thought in that fight that Garcia landed the harder cleaner more effective shots in the majority of the rounds. Fans do seem split 50/50 on this fight and scoring is very subjective in this sport as well all know. This is one of those fights that opinions are very strong one way or the other. In my opinion, Garcia won but I understand what others are saying.

By the way, I do also think Herrera clearly and I mean clearly beat Garcia. Herrera landed much more and Garcia's punches weren't nearly as clean as they were against Peterson.

I almost spit out my lemon-ginger-tumeric tea when I saw the announcers,.... or was it Steve Farhood who had the fight scored in favor of Garcia maintaining a 3 point lead at the end of the 7th,... Farhood is usually on point, but I felt his scoring was grossly inaccurate last night at that point of the fight...Guerrero had swept much of the first half of the fight.

On the other hand Garcia and his team fought utilizing a deftly orchestrated strategy for the first half of the fight. Allowing Guerrero to run amok for six rounds severely sapped Guerrero of his Sampson-like strength during much of the second half.

Garcia simply turned it on in the 7th and Guerrero took a more evident shellacking. Garcia took his fair share of punishment too as he only looked Marginally better than Guerrero at the end of the fight.

The fight was identical to when Peterson fought passively for 6 rounds then proceeded to administer a 6 round clinic on Garcia only to receive the short-shrift of a decision when Danny was given a gift from the judges at the conclusion of the fight.

Danny proved that against the Guerrero's of the world he is still a force to be reckoned with, while the pre-emminent welters like Thurman and Porter look on at Garcia with an appetite usually reserved for a thanksgiving dinner.

However no welterweight should take Danny lightly, he still has room to grow and he finally appears to be moving past the weight plateau that hindered the last 2 years of his Jr Welter Campaign.

I didn't think I would say this but Danny is officially back, despite the bad scoring.

I agree on Herrera , Garcia landed the harder shots on Peterson? but they werent damaging shots, or hurting him so you cant really say just because Garcia is a harder puncher than Peterson Garcias 6 hard shots per round are worth more than Petersons 12....

Rewatch that fight, Garcia got humiliated at times, clear robbery. And I like Garcia..

The powers that be have mad love for DSG because they love giving him gifts and knickknacks. He is a two-loss-one-draw undefeated paper champion. Holla!
