Garcia Rips Khan: Never Met a Pakistanian Who Can Fight!

By Bill Emes

Angel Garcia, the father and trainer of undefeated WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia - held nothing back when he lashed out at his son's scheduled opponent, former beltholder Amir Khan. The fight takes place on July 14th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Garcia is not impressed with Khan's Olympic background, his accomplishments as a professional and he doesn't care much for his fighting ability. He believes Khan was being groomed as the second coming of Prince Naseem Hamed, but the groomers found out the two fighters were very different from each other.

"If you won the silver medal in America, as an Olympian. They are going to look at you like you didn't win gold. That's nothing. He fought through the crack of boxing at the time. He was a slash European. I mean he was a slash British, slash Pakistani. They saw a Prince Naseem. They said 'oh, we could make this kid Prince Naseem.' But you're not Prince Naseem," Garcia said to

"I have never, ever, ever in my lifetime....that I've been living...49-years...I have never met a Pakistanian who could fight. And I'm being honest with you. I ain't beating around the bush or trying to sound racist. I'm being honest with you."
