Danny Garcia Eyes Peterson in Late 2014, Early 2015

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (28-0, 16KOs) has some business to take care of on August 9th, when he takes on huge underdog Rod Salka, but a unification with IBF champion Lamont Peterson (32-2-1, 16KOs) is the fight he wants next. The two champions will co-headline a Showtime televised tripleheader from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Peterson will face local challenger Edgar Santana on the show. If both of them win their contests, Garcia would like to unify with Peterson at the end of the year or in early 2015.

"At the end of the day, it’s what I want because I can say what I want, but you know, right now, I’ve got August 9, so I can’t look past anybody. The same with Lamont Peterson. He can’t look past Edgar Santana. At the end of the day, we’ve both got to get these victories and at the end of the year or the beginning of next year that we could do a unification bout," Garcia said.

I really hope Salka pulls off this upset.. I'm through with Danny and Haymon's shenanigans..

Haymon fighters are at an all time low right now. There's no pride in being one. Showtime too is hitting the bottom. Fans are sick of these disgusting people.

Its looking like should garcia,peterson,mathysse,and broner win their sperate double headers. The winners will fight each other. This what makes showtime stand out from that h o garbage.
