This fight had the same theme throughout all three rounds. It was very clear who the better boxer was. I said that Hominick just needed to avoid an all out brawl and that's exactly what he did. Garcia came out with leg kicks and a big overhand right. Hominick pushed him all around the cage and pumped the jab on him all night.
The fight doesn't need a round by round breakdown. Nothing changed all throughout. Garcia never switched up his attack, even though it clearly wasn't working. He landed a few shots but none of them clean. He failed to make it into the war he had with Sung Jung. His winging punches might have made it look like he was doing more but Hominick was controlling the cage and jabbing him to death. He did a masterful job of keeping him at distance all while backing him down and outpointing him.
One judge gave the fight to Garcia. I have no idea how he could justify such a thing. I can understand giving Garcia a round but not two. He never got his hands off the way he wanted and Hominick had him timed from the beginning to the end. The one knockdown of the fight also went to Hominick, albeit a brief one. In the end, the right guy comes away with the win here.
