2012-07-14 Danny Garcia w rsc 4 Amir Khan, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA/WBC/The Ring. This was Garcia’s first defence of the WBC title he had won when defeating Erik Morales, who had failed to make the weight, while Khan was defending the WBA title that had been handed to him after Lamont Peterson was stripped. The Ring magazine belt, currently vacant, was also up for grabs in this one.

On 8 September, Lucas Martin Matthysse won the vacant WBC ‘interim’ title when stopping Ajose Olusegun inside ten rounds at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.
