Danny Garcia: Im Going to be Vicious, It Wont be Pretty!

Danny Garcias bout with Mauricio Herrera earlier this year was supposed to be a homecoming of sorts. The 26-year-old Philadelphian was fighting in Puerto Rico, where his family is originally from. Yet Herrera gave him a difficult fight. Garcia won by majority decision, and some voices questioned whether that was the proper verdict.

Garcia believes it was the correct decision, yet hes not looking for there to be any debate regarding his bout against Rod Salka on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the main event of a card being broadcast on Showtime.

I expect a great performance by me, Garcia said after weighing in. Everybody know what I bring to the table. I bring excitement. I bring skills. I bring a lot of heart. I bring determination. I know hes hungry, but its a different level. Im going to show my fans what a true champion I am.

Im focused, man. Im better than ever right now. I had a great camp. Theyre going to see vicious Danny Garcia. Its gonna be nothing pretty. Im going to handle business.

This is considered by many to be a showcase bout for Garcia, who won the vacant World Boxing Council belt in 2012 with a win over Erik Morales, unified it months later with a stoppage of Amir Khan, and then defended those belts with a rematch knockout of Morales that wrapped up his year. In 2013, Garcia won unanimous decisions over Zab Judah and division boogeyman Lucas Matthysse.

Garcia is 28-0 with 16 knockouts.

The negative and positive press is press, he said. As long as theres press, Im still relevant and Im still champion.

bullying on a #77 ranked lightweight at a 142 CW. Impressive danny.

Instead of being vicious against a Pittsburgh cab driver how about you take a more active role in career and stop coming off like a complete muppet. Giving Lucas a much deserved rematch would be a good start.
