Philadelphia boxer Danny Garcia knocks out Brandon Rios with a vicious powerful right hand punch. It took 9 rounds by Former WBC welterweight champion Danny Garcia (34-1, 20 KOs) to overpower Brandon Rios (34-4-1, 25 KOs) on Saturday night at Mandalay Bay Events Center. It was Garcia's first fight after narrowly loosing welterweight title unification bout last March and Garcia sent shock-waves in violent fashion.
Garcia established himself again among elite fighters at 147 pounds by knocking out Brandon Rios and he became just the second opponent to knock out Rios in the former lightweight champion’s 39-fight, 13-year pro career. According to Garcia, Rios recklessness left him open for counter shots and he got the benefits in a big way. Garcia says
I felt the ring rust a little bit in the beginning. I wasn't as sharp as I wanted to be. He's a good inside fighter and he was giving me some good inside cuts. It was a good nine rounds. He came to fight but I was prepared for it. I came to box, and I did that. I came to bang, and I gave the fans what they wanted with a knockout.
I just noticed when I was getting my punches off he was in front of me, and I just let the straight right hand go. … I was using the lateral movement and that’s why I probably couldn’t get him out of there early, because I was giving him the benefit of the doubt by coming forward. But as soon as I got the fight in the middle of the ring, like I wanted in the later rounds, then I took it to the middle and landed good shots.
Although Brandon Rios wanted to continue and was able to stand on feet, referee Kenny Bayless took his time and asked Rios to walk forward before closing off the fight at 2:25 of Round 9.
I’m a little mad because I don’t go out like that. I’m a warrior and I got back up, and I was ready to continue. But I guess the corner stopped it, but I’m f**king mad, man. I’m mad. I’m mad. I know they love me and everything, but I was still breathing. I was still walking around. I got up fine. They can stop it when I’m almost f**king dying. I’ll die in that ring. That’s the kind of warrior I am. I’m mad because I got up
After looking at Thurman, Garcia said
No doubt, I would love the rematch with Keith Thurman. But it's on him. Whenever he is ready, we can fight. I took the loss like a true champion and I bounced back like a true champ.

British No 1 tennis player Johanna Konta again excited to repeat last year's
Wimbledon bomblast this summer. Konta is planning to play again in the
Nottingham Open, Birmingham Classic and Eastbourne International in the lead-up to the
grass-court Grand Slam. She was the runner-up in
Nottingham Open last year in July and became the
first British woman to reach the Wimbledon singles semi-finals after Virginia Wade in 1979.
The Eastbourne tournament is particularly popular because of Konta because her family home is within stone’s throw distance away of the Devonshire Park complex that hosts the event.
Since there is only 3 weeks remaining between
French Open ending and Wimbledon starting and she suffered a less successful time and was upset by Bernarda Pera in the second round of the Australian Open last month, Kontaannounced that she is again preparing to get the maximum amount of grass-court practice before her home grand slam.
According to Konta:
These tournaments provide me with the perfect pathway to Wimbledon. Last year it proved to be the best preparation possible as I enjoyed my most successful Wimbledon ever, and hopefully it will have the same effect for 2018.
The grass-court season is one of my favorites and nothing compares to competing at home with passionate fans, friends and family who are behind you all the way.
I know I'm incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to compete in front of a home crowd and especially in Eastbourne, where my family home is just a stone's throw away from Devonshire Park. It's such a special feeling.
As always I know there will be a really strong player field at Nottingham, Birmingham and Eastbourne and I'll face some tough opponents in competitive matches, but I can't wait to get on court and fly the flag for British tennis.
