Mauricio Herrera (20-3, 7KOs) will not have enough firepower to take out WBA/WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (27-0, 16KOs), according to the boxer's trainer and father Angel Garcia. Herrera has promised to "shock the world" when he challenges Garcia for the title on March 15th at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Angel expects another impressive performance as Danny fights in Puerto Rico for the very first time in his career.
"Danny just beat up all of the top, top guns - and you're going to come in there with a .22? Danny just killed all of the AK-47s. That tells you everything that you need to know. [Lucas] Matthysse has an AK-47. This guy [Herrera] has a .22....blank. We're not going to underestimate him, but he's certainly not going to do what he's talking. He's talking a bunch of nothing. It doesn't put any fear in my heart. Danny is going to in there for the first three rounds and warm up, and if [Herrera] opens up after that, he's going to get hit hard - and let's see if he can respond," Angel said.
