A. Garcia Reveals: I Wanted Maidana For Danny Last Year

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Angel Garcia, father and trainer of WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, revealed that he wanted his son to face Marcos Maidana last year.

Before Danny fought Lucas Matthysse in September, and Maidana fought Adrien Broner in December, Angel says he initially selected Maidana as Danny's September opponent. In the end, Danny faced Maidana's countryman Matthysse.

Angel says Floyd Mayweather Jr. made a smart decision by picking Maidana instead of Amir Khan for the May 3rd PPV headliner at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I thought Maidana would be a better choice for him, for him to have a victorious win. I'm not saying Khan is hard because he don't have no chin. But Floyd don't go in there for a knockout. Floyd don't go to the body anymore because he don't want to get countered on top. He's a smart fighter. I would have chose Maidana too, because when [Garcia] fought Matthysse they gave me [a list with] five names and I chose Maidana too, before he fought Broner. Before that I wanted Maidana," Angel Garcia told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=Dean_Razorback]maidana is the real underdog not danny, is always "he is getting stopped by a body punch" (never happened). but one thing for sure is that chino wouldn't take those low blows and do nothing about it, if he has to get dirty, he does it, lets see garcia taking a bomb in the nu...

[QUOTE=Dinamita 03]Come on bro don't take that route. Danny can hang with anybody ( Except PAC and Floyd) but he's plenty beatable.[/QUOTE] i think a focused broner can beat danny
