Junior welterweight prospect Danny Garcia will be taking by far the sternest test of his career, when he takes on power-punching Kendall Holt on Oct. 15, as part of the HBO PPV televised undercard to the Bernard Hopkins-Chad Dawson light heavyweight championship fight. And the Philadelphia native expects a great action fight.

Its going to be a good fight, said the 23-year-old Garcia. We both pack a lot of power. Weve both got speed. Its going to be whoevers more in shape, whoevers smarter.

Garcia (21-0, 14 KOs) defeated Nate Campbell in April, a dominant performance in a 10-round victory. But he knows this fight will be that much more important, especially with it being his first HBO appearance.

This means the world to me, this is what Ive been training for my whole life, said Garcia. Im happy I got the opportunity, its time to shine.

Garcia, for one, thinks that Holt should be weary of his power, and not vice-versa.

Ive fought a lot of people with power, it takes more than power to beat me, said Garcia. Everybody has power, but you cant hit what you cant see. They dont call me Swift for nothing. Im going to make him think in there, he can throw big power shots, tire himself out, and then Ill take him out. But if he underestimates my power, he might be the one looking at the lights.

Holt feeds off guys who come in against him overconfident and underestimating what Holt can do when he's on his game
