Danny Garcia, Angel Ready For Matthysse or Peterson
By Rick Reeno
WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (26-0, 16KOs), and his father/trainer Angel Garcia, have no preference regarding their next scheduled opponent.
Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer recently told BoxingScene.com that Garcia will return on September 7th - likely against the winner of the May 18th showdown between Lucas Matthysse (33-2, 31KOs) and Lamont Peterson (31-1-1, 16KOs).
"It don't matter [which one]. It's whoever wins. It's whatever [my manager] Al Haymon wants to do. It's going to be a competitive fight because both fighters are hungry. It's going to be a good fight," Garcia told BoxingScene.com.
Garcia admits that a match against the Matthysse-Peterson winner could be his last before a move to the welterweight division.
"After that fight there's really no one else to fight at 140...you've got to move on," Garcia said.
For his part, Angel told BoxingScene: "It doesn't matter [who is next]. It could be Matthysse, Peterson, whoever at 140-pounds. If you are a champion - it's whoever, there are no names."

I think Matthysse beats Peterson. people want to hate on Matthysse but the guy can punch, he's got scary power in both hands. I think he'll be too much for Peterson. Garica vs Matthysse is a good fight. I don't…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (13)
