Danny Garcia is Confident of Taking Erik Morales' Strap

By Luis Sandoval

Undefeated junior welterweight contender Danny “Swift” Garcia recently made his debut on BoxingScene.com’s official audio show, The Boxing Lab, and spoke about his upcoming fight on March 24th with WBC champion Erik Morales.

This will be Garcia’s first shot at a major world title and it will be against a highly recognized name. We’ve all become accustomed to watching Erik Morales engage in classic wars in the ring but we’ve also seen him put his boxing skills on display. Garcia expects Morales to bring his best and is not underestimating him one bit.

“I’m definitely expecting him to bring everything he has to the table. I know it’s going to be a hard fight. He’s a tough veteran and he still has a lot left as you can see from his last couple fights” said Garcia.

“I’m not going to have a game plan, I’m just going to go in there and do what I do because it ain’t the same as looking at it on TV and actually being in the ring. So my job is to be in 110% condition, adapting to the fight, and giving the fans a great fight”.

This will definitely be the biggest stage Garcia has been on but don’t expect him to get stage fright or be caught in the moment. Garcia was asked how he would feel seeing a legend like Erik Morales standing across the ring from him on fight night and if it’d be somewhat surreal.

“Yeah man, [that] actually happened to me against Nate Campbell because I grew up watching him too. He was actually one of my dad’s favorite fighters. When I looked across the ring I was like ‘I’m in here with Nate Campbell!’ I was kind of star struck!” explained the Philadelphia native as he chuckled.

“That was just a fight I needed to just get experience. When I fought Kendall Holt, it was like okay, he’s just in my way now. I was already in this position, I already fought a champion. Now it’s my third time fighting a good fighter and good name and those fights led me to this fight and I’m confident now.”

Danny Garcia is currently in the gym but doing light work due to the postponement of this fight. He will resume his camp in full in the next couple weeks and will try to put the world on notice when he takes on Morales in Houston on March 24th.

[QUOTE=4CornersKid;11706869]I hope Garcia retires Morales. I like Morales, he's an ATG in my eyes, but he needs to hang it up. Garcia beats Morales, and than fights someone like Guerrero, Soto, or Matthysse hopefully.[/QUOTE] Those are all losable fights for…
