By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBA/WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (27-0, 16KOs) has often heard his name mentioned in conversations regarding potential future opponents for Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs).

Garcia would like the fight to happen, and wouldn't turn the opportunity down if it was offered to him - but unlike other opponents he doesn't plan to chase the pound-for-pound king.

Last September, Garcia was involved in the featured fight to Mayweather's pay-per-view headliner against Saul Alvarez. Garcia got his biggest career win with a twelve round unanimous decision over Lucas Matthysse.

On March 15th, Garcia will defend his title against Mauricio Herrera in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Mayweather will have a unification clash with Marcos Maidana on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I think any fight can be made in boxing, it's just a matter of the managers and promoters. Me and Floyd Mayweather are both managed by Al Haymon and promoted by Golden Boy. The fight can happen. Would I like the fight to happen? Yeah, of course. I would love to be in the ring with one of the best fighters. That's why I'm in the game. I want to fight the best. But is it something that I'm begging for? No. I'm just going to continue building my own legacy. Would I like to fight Mayweather or Pacquiao one day? Of course. But if it don't happen then it don't happen," Garcia told

[QUOTE=Carpe Diem]Translation: I'm waiting for Floyd to look like a washed-up 37-year-old in the ring, then I'll fight him.[/QUOTE] Pac's logic. Danny's just taking a page from his book.

How can people say Danny is scared? Makes no sense when that fight would be the biggest payday of his life. If Angel feels Danny isn't ready for the fight than so be it. That doesn't mean that their scared, he just isn't going to sell out for the payday like most people.
