Angel Garcia, the controversial father/trainer of WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (24-0, 15KOs), has taken a few more shots at Amir Khan. Last Saturday at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Garcia knocked Khan down three times and stopped him in the fourth round.
Khan's trainer Freddie Roach is already calling for a rematch. Angel Garcia is not interested in a rematch, even with more money at stake. There is a good possibility that Khan will move up to the welterweight division, but Angel is actually advising Khan to move back to the lightweight division.
"It's not about the money. They took Danny as a pushover. They have no respect for us," Garcia told BoxingScene.com.
"They gave us no respect. There are better fighters out there than him. I want Danny to fight the best. Fight [Khan again] for what? He's little. They said he's big. He's not big. When he came to the presser he probably had shoes on, high heels, to make himself look big. When they were in the ring, Danny was looking down at him when they did the face off before the fight started. And I was looking at his body, he should go back to 135. He has a little frame. You can't mess with these big boys. Danny is a big boy, a junior welterweight. Danny is really a welterweight. We're talking about the future. Danny can really click at welterweight."
