Results from around the boxing world.
Undefeated Danny ‘Swift’ Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) looks to have retired Paulie ‘The Magic Man’ Malignaggi (33-7, 7 KOs) with a slow and sustained beating Saturday night at Barclays Center as Premier Boxing Champions aired in primetime on ESPN. Garcia wore Malignaggi down over the course of the fight and won when the referee waved an end to the bout in the ninth round.
In an anticlimactic co-feature in Brooklyn, Danny Jacobs won by second-round TKO when Sergio Mora injured his right ankle on a knockdown and could not continue. The bout started furiously with both men landing bombs in the opening round, but Mora was unable to continue due to an ankle injury in the second leaving the fans wanting more.
2012 British Olympic gold medalist Luke Campbell (12-0, 10 KOs) picked up a career best win Saturday in Hull with a bruising tenth round TKO over a tough and durable Tommy Coyle (21-3, 12 KOs). Both men had talked a lot of trash in the build up but Campbell’s class and pedigree were the difference as he scored a second round knockdown and four more in the tenth to end the night.
England’s Brian Rose (27-3-1, 8 KOs) got his revenge over well travelled spoiler Carson Jones (37-11-3, 27 KOs) Saturday in Hull with a twelve round unanimous decision to avenge his shocking and controversial first round stoppage loss to Jones earlier in the year. Jones had his moments but Rose fought through some duress and stayed busy to pick up the decision victory.
