A. Garcia: Danny Tagged as Cherry Picker, I Don't Care!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia has continued to take verbal abuse from the fans, who are unhappy with Saturday's opponent Rod Salka (19-3, 3KOs). Garcia will face Salka in a ten round non-title bout from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The champion's father and trainer, Angel Garcia, is not concerned with the critics at hand. He is only focused on getting the victory over Salka in the coming days.

"Salka is in the wrong predicament right now because that bad image [from Puerto Rico] made Danny a better fighter. Danny is 100 percent. The fight is going to be a great fight. I don't care what the people say," Angel said.

"They're calling Danny 'cherry picker, blackberry picker' but it doesn't matter because he still has to go out there and get his (victory). I told him to be a fighter. Nobody ever gave him anything ... my job is not to worry about Salka. It's to worry about Danny Garcia. It's going to be called the 'Danny 'Swift' Garcia Show.' This is going to be the Fight of the Year."
