Mikey Garcia unanimously outpointed Adrien Broner on Saturday night to remain undefeated.

Garcia controlled his first fight at 140 pounds, particularly with body shots he was able to sneak in below Broner’s defence, and won 117-111 on one card and 116-112 on the other two.

A former champion in three lower weight classes, Garcia (37-0, 30 KOs) never seriously hurt Broner but dictated the action for most of the 12 rounds.

Broner (33-3, 24 KOs) lost a fight he probably needed to win to prove he is worthy of still being considered one of boxing’s headliners and capable of beating some of the sport’s best. It was better than some of his recent performances, but not good enough against a fighter of Garcia’s calibre.
