Danny Garcia on Facing Broner, Unsure of Peterson

By Luis Sandoval

Danny Garcia is currently the reigning WBC and WBA Junior Welterweight champion but that may not be the case for long as Garcia is looking to move up in weight and enter boxing’s glamour division of 147 pounds.

When Garcia was in Carson, CA for the Shawn Porter-Kell Brook fight he informed the plan was to look to move up which means that a fight with IBF Junior Welterweight champion Lamont Peterson may not be a possibility as once thought.

BoxingScene asked Garcia if he felt the Peterson fight was big enough for him to stick around at 140 pounds.

“I think it’s a good fight. I think it’s a good fight for me but I don’t think it would do anything for my career because I think he still has a little bit to prove. I beat people he struggled with. Like we have a lot of common opponents and I beat everybody. So I don’t know man. To be honest for you, I don’t know,” Garcia would tell BoxingScene.

Another possible mega fight for Garcia at Junior Welterweight is against Adrien Broner who is looking to become a four time champion in four weight classes if he captures a title at 140 pounds. Recently Broner said he felt a fight with him and Garcia would be bigger later and Garcia was asked if he’d be willing to take that fight.

“He’s matched up and fighting I think September 6th so his focus is on that fight. But I don’t know. In boxing people win and people lose and sometimes things never happen. But I’m always up for whatever, I’m a fighter,” said the Philadelphia champion.

Garcia hopes to get in the ring before the end of the year and we’ll find out then if he’ll continue his reign at Junior Welterweight or tries to start a new one 7 pounds north.

Andre Berto would be a nice 147 debut for Danny IMO.

Broner is not fighting him. Danny dont want Peterson. Who is he going to fight? It cannot be another "tuneup". The backlash would be too strong.

PEDerson is not good. Really don't get what people see in him, he's average. Garcia needs to shut up though, he's spent the majority of his career beating up old guys or bums.
