Danny Garcia Says Welterweight Move is Likely Next

By Rick Reeno

WBA/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (27-0, 16KOs) is likely heading up in weight. Danny plans to go to the welterweight division after beating most of the top names at 140-pounds - including Amir Khan, Zab Judah, Erik Morales and now Lucas Matthysse.

"I beat all of the best fighters at 140, what else do you want me to do? I beat everybody at 140. I beat two guys that I wasn't suppossed to beat and I beat them in fashion," Garcia said.

Garcia won a clear twelve round decision over Matthysse on the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Saul Alvarez undercard on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Most of the big names - like Mayweather, Adrien Broner, Devon Alexander, Amir Khan, Manny Pacquiao, Timothy Bradley, Juan Manuel Marquez - are already campaigning at welterweight.
