Angel Garcia May Oversee Wrapping of Khan's Hands

By Rick Reeno

Frank Espinoza, manager of undefeated Carlos Molina (17-0-1, 7KOs) , has advised BoxingScene.com that trainer Angel Garcia will be present at the Los Angeles Sports Arena on Saturday night. Molina will challenge former champion Amir Khan (26-3, 18KOs), who was knocked out in his last fight by Angel's son, WBA/WBC 140-pound champion Danny Garcia.

During the pre-fight promotion for the July clash with Danny Garcia, Khan and Angel were exchanging plenty of harsh words in the press - and face to face during media functions. Following the fourth round TKO loss, Khan admitted that Angel's consistent taunts threw him off his game plan.

Espinoza told BoxingScene "don't be surprised if you see Angel in Khan's dressing room on Saturday. We want to make sure his hands are properly wrapped. Angel has a good eye."

A few weeks ago, Espinoza promised to enter the ring with a stretcher, insisting that his fighter will finish Khan off inside the distance.

"We already reserved the stretcher. I purchased a very comfortable Beautyrest mattress. I don't want the British fans to be angry with us. I want to make sure Amir is comfortable when his team rolls him to the back," Espinoza said.

[QUOTE=G22;12804470]Parts of this is true but not sure I can agree with it all. You need to keep in mind that Khan constantly goes on about knocking out Danny Garcia even when he isnt fighting him. Its only natural that…

Angel Garcia is playing with everyone's head in boxing. Butting into everything and commenting on everything. Someone will clock this clown watch. The hand wrapping will be a major event now on cable. Good for ratings. Virgil Hunter should protest…

[QUOTE]However if Garcia keeps hounding Khan, especially in fights neither Garcia has a stake in, not only is that bad sportsmanship, its maliciously attempting to interfere and undo Khan's professional career, especially when neither Amir or Danny have anything to…
