Danny Garcia Is Not A Boxer, He’s Now a Boxer/Promoter

Danny Garcia has formed Swift Promotions and will promote his first event Saturday, June 15 at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

“I’m honored to launch Swift Promotions on Saturday, June 15 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey,” said Danny Garcia in a release. “The venue has been home to many historic fights and we’re thrilled to promote our first show there.”

The hitter, who turned pro in 2007, holds a 37-3 mark. He's been fighting infrequently of late. Danny Garcia had two fights in 2020, and his last scrap came in July 2022, when he beat Jose Benavidez.  At age 36, Danny Garcia sees writing on the wall, and is wanting to stay inside the fight game, it looks like, even after his active stint finishes.

“I’ve wanted to start promoting for a couple of years and this is a great opportunity to showcase the top young talent in the Philadelphia area in addition to supporting the young ‘Boricua’ prospects,” said the Philadelphia native Danny Garcia in a release.

He's battled anxiety and depression, and seems to be on the other side now. Here is the report from NYF on his win over Benavidez.
