Garcia: Khan Leaves Himself Open, Won't See My Shots!

Amir Khan is already getting ready for his upcoming fight with WBC light-welterweight champion Danny Garcia on July 14 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The bout was set arranged after Khan's rematch against Lamont Peterson for the WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles, which was due to be staged earlier this month, was cancelled after Peterson failed a drug test.

Khan, 25, is hoping to regain his titles after he was controversially beaten by Peterson in Washington DC on points in December 2011.

And his new opponent, although young, has a formidable record in his early career, with 23 wins in 23 bouts - 14 by knockout. Garcia, 24, welcomed the fight and believes he will retain his unbeaten record, claiming Khan was over-rated.

'I feel like this is how it's supposed to be: the best versus the best, both of us in our prime and giving the fans a great fight,' Garcia told Daily Mail.

'I'm just happy - I feel like I have what it takes to beat this guy. I've watched Khan a lot. He's a good fighter, but I don't think he's what people say he is, getting all this credit. I feel like he will leave himself open for some big shots and we'll see if he can take them. I can box and I can punch. I'm going to hit him with stuff he won't see. I can't wait.'

Garcia called it. He landed his shots in weird areas, but they clearly threw Khan's equilibrium off when they landed. He wasn't going to recover anytime soon.
