Garcia vs Herrera: Full fight video highlights from Showtime Sports

Danny Garcia got a bigger test than expected from Mauricio Herrera, and Deontay Wilder, Juan Manuel Lopez, and Danny Jacobs enjoyed quick wins in Bayamon.

Last night's Showtime and Showtime Extreme card featured three early nights and a far more competitive than expected main event in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Here are the video recaps from Showtime.

Danny Jacobs TKO-1 Milton Nunez


Jacobs improved to 27-1 (24 KO) with an easy wipeout of Nunez (26-10-1, 24 KO), a very limited Colombian slugger who has the typical Colombian-style build-a-record thing going on. Jacobs was faster, stronger, better-schooled -- it was a complete mismatch. There's talk now of Jacobs facing WBO middleweight titlist Peter Quillin this summer, and one has to wonder if the 27-year-old Jacobs is any more ready for that fight than he was when he faced Dmitry Pirog in 2010. Rightly so, he was matched very soft in his return to the ring after beating cancer, but he's had five fights now since his comeback, and by far the best opponent was Giovanni Lorenzo. Quillin may not be a world-beater, but he's a tough, high-energy guy who presents a lot more danger than Lorenzo or Nunez.

Juan Manuel Lopez TKO-2 Daniel Ponce De Leon


It wasn't exactly déjà vu, but it wasn't too far off, either. In a rematch of their 2008 HBO encounter, where Lopez (34-3, 31 KO) stopped Ponce De Leon (45-6, 35 KO) in the first round, JuanMa gave his career a shot in the arm with a second round TKO of his old rival. Lopez went down first in round two, but rebounded to crush Ponce De Leon with a right hook that turned the tide of the fight as Ponce De Leon was looking for the kill. Another knockdown gave Lopez even more momentum, and he finished the fight moments later, though most agree it was a bit of an early hook, as Ponce De Leon was covering up and not exactly eating big shots, while looking clear-headed and like he was trying to weather the storm and fight back.

Deontay Wilder KO-1 Malik Scott


You'll have to excuse me, but I'm currently a bit burnt out on talking about this fight. Was it a dive? Scott says absolutely not.

Danny Garcia MD-12 Mauricio Herrera


Garcia (28-0, 16 KO) got a lot more than he bargained for against Herrera (20-4, 7 KO) in what wasn't supposed to be more than a tune-up fight to get Danny a foot in the Puerto Rican fan base's door. Garcia got a pretty good reaction for the most part, but the win is debatable, and it's generally agreed that the 8-4 scorecards that gave Garcia the majority decision win were, um, "mistaken." Yeah. That's a word.
