Bayamon, Puerto Rico (SportsNetwork.com) - Danny Garcia retained his WBA and WBC junior welterweight titles with a 12-round decision over Mauricio Herrera.

The 25-year-old Garcia (28-0) landed just 30 percent of his punches compared to 32 percent for Herrera (20-4), but Garcia landed more heavy punches as he opened a cut under Herrera's left eye in the eighth round.

Herrera opened a cut on the bridge of Garcia's nose in the ninth round, but Garcia began to land hooks and combinations during the final rounds.
