He has fought in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, New York, Mexico, and Houston.
Now Danny Garcia, the light-welterweight boxing champion from Juniata Park, will trace his roots with a March 15 fight in Puerto Rico.
Both of Garcia's parents immigrated from Puerto Rico. The 12-round bout against the unheralded Mauricio Herrera will likely be promoted more around Garcia's return to the island rather than his opposition.
Herrera (20-3, seven knockouts) has lost two of his last four fights and has never fought for a world title. The World Boxing Association - which recognizes Garcia as champion - is the only world boxing organization to list Herrera in its top 10. The Mexican is No. 4.
