Danny Garcia: Khan Has No Power, He Fights Scared

By Luis Sandoval

Coming off the biggest victory of his career and winning his first world title against legendary Erik “Terrible” Morales, Danny “Swift” Garcia isn’t taking an easy touch for his next fight. He will be facing former junior welterweight champion Amir “King” Khan July 14th live on HBO from the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV.

Garcia is definitely coming into this fight extremely confident and is looking forward to the challenge of taking on a young talented fighter like Khan. Trash talking is nothing new to the sport of boxing and both Garcia and Khan have promised dominant victories heading into this fight. Garcia however isn’t impressed with Khan’s power and feels he’ll be the one administering the punishment when they meet.

“I don’t think he has power. I think he’s just a little physically strong. Like his body is physically strong but I don’t think he has the one hit knockout punch. I don’t think he has that. I have that and I got the skills. I’m able to set the knockout up. I’m just a different fighter and like I said before, I can’t see him beating me” Garcia would tell BoxingScene.com.

As talented as Amir Khan is, he has been known to clinch and slow down the pace in his fights. In his last fight against Peterson, Khan was deducted 2 points during the fight for excessive pushing. Garcia was asked about his thoughts surrounding that and what he has planned to deal with it. He had a simple answer.

“He does that cause he’s scared. He fights scared. He hits and he runs. People don’t want to see that. I don’t even know why people buy into it because he just hits and runs all the time. People don’t want to see that. People want to see you fight and hit. People want to see blood. People want to see tears” said the Philadelphia native.

“If he wants to give the fans a great fight all I just ask him is when I hit him hard, please don’t run”.
