Garcia absolutely dominating. Paulie getting tagged clean continuously. May want to call an end to it in Malignaggi's corner.

Dan Rafael @danrafaelespn

Even when Paulie lands a few shots they mean nothing because he has no power to speak of against Garcia, who has a good chin.

Nigel Collins @NigelBoxing

Let's be honest, neither Garcia or Malignaggi is looking great. What happened to the swift in Danny "Swift" Garcia?

The best first round you'll ever see

The second-round stoppage that gave Daniel Jacobs a TKO win over Sergio Mora was a bit anticlimactic after the two traded punches that doubled as automobile collisions in the first.


Nigel Collins @NigelBoxing

A little flurry at the end of the fourth by Garcia, but it's his pressure more than is punches that seem to be bothering Malignaggi.

Malignaggi bloodied, trails Garcia

The Brooklyn crowd is behind Paulie Malignaggi, but he's just a step slow against Danny Garcia, who has opened up a cut over Malignaggi's right eye in the third round. Malignaggi has been cut in 7 previous fights. Watch live on ESPN, WatchESPN

Teddy Atlas: Malignaggi's legs are the key

The legendary boxing trainer points out that Paulie Malignaggi's stance has widened over the years, which makes him a step slow in retreat. Could that deficiency lead to a loss after a 16-month layoff? The fighters are making their way to the ring. Watch live
