BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Danny Garcia and his father, Angel, sat next to each other at the podium inside the Barclays Center media room and took on questions. It was 2 hours after the fight had ended, and Juniata Park's Danny "Swift" Garcia was wearing a pair of designer sunglasses and a DSG hat. His face was battered from an onslaught by Lamont Peterson in the final five rounds, but he was smiling nonetheless. Garcia won Saturday night by majority decision (115-113, 115-113 and 114-114)

Sometime before he departs for New York on Tuesday night, a member of Danny Garcia's camp will reach into the boxing champion's glass trophy case and grab his title belts. The belts will be packed into a duffel bag before they leave Garcia's Bensalem home. They will be flaunted at news conferences, workouts, and autograph signings leading up to the Aug. 9 fight against Rod Salka at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The belts will be carried into the ring by Garcia's cornermen, but they won't be on the line.

IBF junior-welterweight champion Lamont Peterson knows that he and Danny Garcia had vastly different outcomes against a common opponent, Lucas Matthyesse. Don't read anything into it heading into Saturday's non-title fight with Garcia, Peterson said. "At the end of the day it makes no difference," said Peterson (33-2-1, 17 knockouts). "You can match it up many different ways, different fighters - it never makes any sense. There are so many situations and incidents throughout boxing history that tell you that makes no sense.

LAS VEGAS — Danny Garcia's left hook showed up just in time Saturday night. And he used it to unlock the door that leads to superstardom. The undefeated Philadelphia junior welterweight showed the world he's the real deal with his fourth-round stoppage of Amir Khan, taking his WBA title in the process while retaining his WBC belt at Mandalay Bay Events Center. "This is so big for me," Garcia said after he dropped Khan with a big, looping left hook late in the third round, then used the left to knock him down twice in the fourth round.

LAS VEGAS - Danny Garcia just wanted to figure out his vacation destination. He usually goes to an island or resort after a fight, but the Juniata Park native said he might start his vacation by staying an extra day here to celebrate. He pounded out an impressive, unanimous decision over Lucas Matthysse to retain his unified light welterweight titles Saturday. While Garcia wondered about his getaway plans, everyone else in the MGM Grand seemed to be fixated on the 25-year-old's chances to square off with Floyd Mayweather.

Danny Garcia follows his father up the narrow, wooden staircase at Harrowgate Boxing Club in Juniata Park. Angel Garcia has led his son into the rugged gym on East Venango Street since 1998, when Angel Garcia saw boxing as a way to be a better father after his release from prison. This is the only gym the father and son, the unified light-welterweight world champion, have ever called home. But after Saturday night they will bid Harrowgate farewell. Danny Garcia (25-0, 16 KOs)

Angel Garcia draped his left arm around the shoulders of his son, world champion Danny "Swift" Garcia, and smacked his son's chest with his right hand. With each thud, Angel Garcia's voice grew louder. His son, Angel Garcia said, is all he cares about. "This is a new era of fighters," Angel Garcia said Thursday afternoon at Juniata Park's Harrowgate Boxing Club. "Swift is the champ of the world. Everyone else is just an opponent to the champ. " And the champ will meet his next opponent on April 27 at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, where Danny Garcia will defend his unified light-welterweight world titles in a 12-round bout against Brooklyn's Zab Judah (42-7, 29 KOs)

It was a few days before Danny Garcia's fight last September, and his brother Eric stood nearby as the boxing champion conducted an interview in Spanish. Eric Garcia said his younger brother was teaching himself the language and wanted to be able to say more than just a few boxing phrases. It looks as if those lessons will have a chance to pay off. Garcia's father and trainer, Angel, told ESPN Deportes that there is a good chance his son will defend his unified WBA-WBC light-welterweight titles in Puerto Rico.

THERE IS a school of thought that love and boxing don't mix, that a fighter needs to remains tough and just a little bit mean to bring his most effective self to the task at hand. Former WBC/WBA super lightweight champion Danny "Swift" Garcia, proud father of a 5-month-old baby girl, clearly doesn't subscribe to that theory. Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) takes on another former world champ, onetime IBF super featherweight titlist Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (33-3-1, 18 KOs) Saturday night for the vacant WBC welterweight crown at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the first prime-time main event to be televised by Premier Boxing Champions on Fox.

Juniata Park's Danny Garcia spent more than two years as a world champion, prompting his father, Angel, to call him "Champ" so often that it seemed as if he might have forgotten his son's name. Needless to say, the last few months have been strange. The Garcias have been without a world title since June, when Danny Garcia was forced to relinquish his pair of light-welterweight championships when he moved up seven pounds to the 147-pound welterweight division. Those empty feelings could soon go away.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - It has been said that there is a lot of infighting in politics. It also has been said that there is a lot of politicking in boxing. If those familiar axioms are at least somewhat true, then Danny "Swift" Garcia's ninth-round technical knockout of faded, two-division former world champion Paulie Malignaggi Saturday night in the Barclays Center at least somewhat resembled what figures to take place during the 10-candidate debate involving 10 Republican presidential hopefuls Thursday night in Cleveland.

NEW YORK - They stepped into the ring at 10:09 p.m. Saturday, Danny Garcia with a career ahead of him, and Paulie Malignaggi with a career to save. Their contrasting styles, personalities, and career arcs clashed at the Barclays Center, and Garcia won by technical knockout in the ninth round. Garcia, the undefeated 27-year-old, was looking to punch his way closer to superstardom. Malignaggi, 34, was looking to, if for just for one night, disprove the prevailing opinion that he should have retired 16 months ago. Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs)

NEW YORK - Danny Garcia, with flashy accessories dotting his otherwise all-white outfit, was hard to miss at the B.B. King Blues Club and Grill on Thursday. Dark sunglasses covered most of his face. A light blue hat covered his head. A gold "DSG" chain, standing for Danny "Swift" Garcia, hung around his neck and drooped to the middle of his torso. "You know boxing is all about entertainment," Garcia said. "That's what makes you stand out. " Garcia, a soft spoken 27-year-old from North Philadelphia, does most of his talking in the ring.

NEW YORK - The story behind the 16-month layoff between Paulie Malignaggi's last fight and Saturday's is simple: He thought his boxing career was over. The former champion traded his spot in the ring for a seat alongside it, and settled into a TV gig with Showtime that began in 2012. But as he sparred with friends preparing for their own fights, the 34-year-old thought he had something left. And when he was presented with the chance to fight the undefeated Danny Garcia in his hometown of Brooklyn at the Barclays Center, it was an easy decision.

BOXING, LIKE EVERY sport, is about numbers. And, for now-former WBA/WBC super lightweight champion Danny "Swift" Garcia, the most important number concerning his career remains impressive at first glance. It's hard to argue with a 30-0 record that includes 17 victories inside the distance. Garcia, 27, is still undefeated, still widely considered an elite fighter, and he and his trainer-father, Angel, still believe the Philadelphia-born fighter with Puerto Rican roots can be as good or better than he ever was. Yet . . . Garcia, who faces former two-division world titlist Paulie Malignaggi (33-6, 7 KOs)

STANDING INSIDE the DSG Boxing Gym on Jasper Avenue in North Philadelphia, with fight posters from past victories lining the walls, Danny "Swift" Garcia doesn't believe his change of scenery affects his deftness in the ring. To Garcia, the only difference between this training spot and a crusty, old school gym is that those grimy places have rats and "give you worms. " While his training might not be different here, there is one thing that has changed for Garcia: his weight class.

Two members of Danny Garcia's team tied a white string across the ring, and the fighter went to work on Wednesday afternoon. Garcia started slowly, shuffling from one corner to the other, casually ducking under the string and throwing warm-up punches at the air. Then his feet picked up speed, and he grunted with every punch. When he got to the corner in front of a group of photographers, Garcia yelled through a three-punch combination and drowned out the music playing from the back of the gym. With his first welterweight fight coming up against Paulie Malignaggi on Aug. 1 in Brooklyn, Wednesday offered a sneak peek at the bigger and, according to him, better Danny Garcia.

Charles Ramey had grown weary of his former boxer sending emissaries to speak for him, so when "Hammerin' " Hank Lundy finally showed up at the Marion Anderson Recreational center at 740 S. 17th St. to speak to him, he was all ears. "I needed to talk with him, I needed to clear the air," said Lundy, 31. "We were really good together. " That they were. Lundy (25-4-1, 12 KOs) won his first 16 professional fights with Ramey as his trainer before they parted ways. They'll reunite this weekend as Lundy takes on Mauricio Herrera (21-5, 7 KOs)
