Garcia: Khan's Fights Were Setups, I'm Going To Hurt Him

By Ernest Gabion

WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (23-0, 14KOs) is confident that Amir Khan (26-2, 18KOs) will suffer his second consecutive loss on July 14th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. HBO will televise.

Khan is returning from a split decision loss to Lamont Peterson, which took place last December. Garcia is coming off the biggest win of his career, a twelve round decision over Mexican legend Erik Morales in March.

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. I think it's the perfect time for this fight. I'm the champion and he calls himself the best. If he calls himself the best then he has to beat the champion. To me, it's just another guy in my way trying to defeat me, but it ain't gonna happen," Garcia said to The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene.com's official audio show.

"Everybody says he's fast and all that, but he reaches a lot with his punches and  I think that's where he goes wrong. I'm a great counter-puncher, so if he comes in and he wants to reach - then he has to pay. If he wants to fight then we can fight. If he wants to box then we could box. Whatever he wants to do, I'm going to adapt in there and make a exciting fight and win."

Garcia is not concerned with any of Khan's past victories. He feels the British star was carefully matched against safe opponents, and expects the challenger to have his share of struggles in their upcoming fight.

"I know that I'm going to hurt him in this fight. He never fought anyone like me. All of his other fights were setup fights to make him look good. This fight right here, he is going to have his hands full," Garcia said.

I think setups may be a strong word, the record of Khan's last 6 opponents are 178-11. So that is not exactly a list of setups in my opinion. I mean it may not have been a murderer's row but…

I think the better boxer will win this fight. I like khan as a fighter however his boxing skills seems limited as he was exposed in his last fight. Im still pulling for Khan. Garcia does seem to have good…
