Video report (embedded to the left) and article by Chris Robinson, HustleBoss.com: Sources close to the situation have informed HustleBoss.com that WBA/WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (27-0, 16 KO's) very well could be defending his belts against tough veteran Mauricio Herrera (20-3, 7 KO's) in his next fight.
Garcia will be returning to the ring on March 15, but no official venue has been set at the moment. The Philadelphia native is expected to make the move to the welterweight division in the near future, but will stay at 140 pounds for at least one more fight it appears.
Garcia is riding a high following his gritty unanimous decision victory over Lucas Matthysse this past September and has established himself as one of the rising stars in the sport.
Herrera would present Garcia an opponent with decent experience and a proven chin, but it isn't the fight many were expecting. The Riverside resident's biggest victory is a unanimous decision over Ruslan Provodnikov three years ago and he has since suffered back-to-back decision losses to Mike Alvarado and Karim Mayfield.
Stay tuned for more details on Garcia's next move.
