American Mikey Garcia was named Saturday as the World Boxing Council (WBC) July Boxer of the Month for clinging to the super lightweight Diamond belt by defeating unanimously in twelve rounds to American Adrien Broner.

Garcia, who beat Broner on July 29 in Brooklyn, New York, remained undefeated and increased his record to 37 wins, 30 on the fast track.

The Mexico City-based body awarded honorable mention to Mexican Miguel Berchelt, who retained the super featherweight title against Japan’s Takashi Miura in a July 15 fight in Los Angeles, California.
