Garcia vs Herrera photos and quotes: Danny Garcia survives, Deontay Wilder wins by KO

Danny Garcia made it out of Puerto Rico with his title belts, while Deontay Wilder scored a first round KO of Malik Scott last night on Showtime.

DANNY GARCIA

"He is a crafty veteran and I know every time I step in the ring, every fighter wants what I have. So I expect them to bring everything. I had to make adjustments and I had to push the fight. He is a good fighter but I am a true champion. I had to make adjustments and pull it out. I needed to find my comfort zone but once I adjusted and got him on the ropes I knew I was doing good. I had to keep my composure and use my power shots. He came to fight and he did and it was a great fight."

"I wanted to knock him out in front of my fans but he was tough. I know nothing is going to be easy from this point on for the rest of my career. I thought I won the fight. The Puerto Rican fans here support me. I love them."

"I think making 140 pounds might have affected my performance a little bit. I need to sit with my camp and see if I should go up to 147 and start a new journey. It's been getting a little hard so maybe I need to think about moving up."

MAURICIO HERRERA

"I thought I was fine-tuned. I came perfectly prepared for this fight. I was trying to push the fight. I came to box but he wasn't making a fight so I am the one that had to make the fight. I was the one putting the pressure on to make the fight. I feel like I won the fight. I thought I finished strong at the end too. I thought I won the fight."

DEONTAY WILDER

"I've got power. I've got natural power. This is something that you can't buy. This is something that you can't enhance and put in your body. This is all natural pure Alabama power. The left hand was right to the temple, to the head, and that is a soft spot. My power is crazy. I go through the gloves. Even though he had his gloves, there is nothing stopping that. Even though it went through his glove it still hurts."

"All the testing is done in the gym. I bust my butt off in the gym to come here and perform for all the people and I make it look easy. I don't care if I don't go past four rounds or solve all the questions that people have about me. I have one mission and it is to unify all the heavyweight belts."

MALIK SCOTT

"I got caught. I don't really remember what happened because I never saw the shot coming. I know he caught me with the left hook. I am so disappointed. I trained really hard. It is just awful."
