Danny García needed his right hand to defeat his opponent on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Brandon Ríos proved to be a tougher opponent than García thought he was going to be.
Ríos took a right hand from García to his head with :52 seconds left in the ninth round. He initially made the 10-count, but clearly was wobbly, as he was walking towards the official. The fight was then stopped.
The knockout was García’s 20th in his career.
The Philadelphia native improved to 34-1 in his boxing career. This win was García’s first action in almost a year after suffering a split decision loss to Keith Thurman on March 3rd, 20017 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Ríos, a California native, fell to 34-4-1 in his boxing career. Two of Ríos losses have been by knockout, as he was also knocked out by Timothy Bradly Jr. on November 7th, 2015 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas for the WBO World Welterweight Championship.
Ríos is 3-4 in his last seven bouts.
Prior to the post-fight interview, Shawn Porter challenged García to a fight. Broadcaster Jim Gray had to get Porter out of the ring so that he could do his post-fight interviews.
