Garcia: A Rematch? I Would Knock Amir Khan Out Again!

Danny Garcia and Amir Khan will share a Showtime telecast April 27.

If Garcia gets by Zab Judah at Barclays Center and Khan overcomes huge underdog Julio Diaz in a fight thatíll be broadcast on delay after the live telecast of Garcia-Judah, there is a strong possibility a Garcia-Khan rematch will be scheduled for later this year. Garcia doesnít think itís necessary because he won their first fight definitively, but the undefeated Philadelphia fighter is willing to face the popular British boxer again.

ďI really donít understand why people want to see me fight him again,Ē Garcia told BoxingScene.com. ďIt wasnít even a close fight. I knocked him out in four rounds. But this time, Iím more seasoned, Iím stronger, Iím a lot faster. I feel like the second time around itís going to be the same outcome. But if he wants to do it, Iím down for it.Ē

Garcia (25-0, 16 KOs) sat ringside for Khanís dominant performance against Carlos Molina (17-1-1, 7 KOs), but the WBC 140-pound champion wasnít impressed with what he witnessed Dec. 15 in Los Angeles. Garcia didnít notice much of a difference in Khan during a fight he won by technical knockout, despite that the one-sided, 10-round match marked the 2004 Olympic silver medalistís debut with trainer Virgil Hunter in his corner.

ďHe did what he had to do,Ē said Garcia, who stopped Khan in the fourth round July 14 in Las Vegas. ďHe beat a 135-pound fighter with no power. He was still getting hit with a lot of punches. People ask me every day, ĎDid you see improvement?í You really canít change a fighter in eight weeks, from what heís been doing his whole life. He was still getting hit with the same punches I hit him with, but the guy had no power to hurt him.

ďBut I give him credit. He did what he had to do. He beat a smaller guy who canít really punch, coming up from the lightweight division. So youíve got to give him credit. He went in the ring and did what he was supposed to do.Ē

The 33-year-old Diaz (40-7-1, 29 KOs) is a bigger puncher than Molina, but the former IBF lightweight champion has been stopped five times during his 14-year pro career.
