Angel Garcia Rips WBC/WBA For Playing Dirty With Danny

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York - Angel Garcia, father and trainer of WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, is furious with both of the sanctioning bodies that his son represents.  

According to Angel, he received word from both the WBC and the WBA that Danny would have been stripped if Rod Salka pulled off the upset on Saturday night. Danny destroyed Salka in two easy rounds.

Going into the fight, Salka was an unranked contender moving up from lightweight. The sanctioning bodies refused to approve the bout as a title fight. Because of that, it was turned into a non-title catch-weight bout at 142.

Angel wants an explanation as to why his son was in jeopardy of losing both belts in a non-title fight which was taking place outside of the junior welterweight division.

"The WBA and WBC were playing dirty. If Danny would have lost they would have stripped his titles. Why? Why would they strip him? They could have them. If they were my titles I'd give them back. I don't even want them...honestly. I don't give a sh*t about the politics, you've gotta be faithful. You can't be dirty. To me that's dirty. How is he going to lose his titles fighting at 142, if he would have lost? How? How many people do they do that to? Why, do I gotta be Mexican [to keep them]?," Angel told BoxingScene.com.

"I doesn't matter, it's only trophies. We're talking millions, the hell with the trophies. He earned trophies when he was an amateur. A whole of them, I got boxes and boxes."
