Garcia Says No Respect For Erik Morales, Targets a KO
By Jhonny Gonzalez
Angel Garcia, father and trainer of WBC/WBA 140-pound champion Danny Garcia (24-0, 15KOs), doesn't expect former three division world champion Erik Morales (52-8, 36KOs) to last the distance on October 20th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. When they met in the month of March, Angel feels his son gave Morales too much respect in the ring. Morales went down in the eleventh round and lost a twelve round decision.
"Now it's Danny who is driving the car. I would have preferred for him to fight against someone else, but Danny is a fighter who represents money at 140 pounds. We are willing to fight anyone at 140 pounds and other names had been mentioned like Zab Judah and Juan Manuel Marquez, but we understand that Morales is a veteran with a name," Angel told Carlos Gonzalez.
"Morales was not obligated to give us the opportunity the first time and when a second fight was discussed, we understood that he deserves it. Erik gave Danny a good fight, he's a warrior."
Angel wants his son to pick his punches perfectly and stop Morales inside the distance.
"It will be in our home and now I can dare to say that Danny is going to knock him out. The first time we could never catch him well, but the second time it is not going the distance. Erik has experience. Although he went down in the first fight, we knew he would get up but he won't in the next fight. We gave him too much respect, and Danny is a smart fighter who does not waste punches."

I just hope Morales comes in a bit better physically. If his legs could hold up for the whole 12 rounds Morales can pull out the victory. In any case I'M willing to bet on Morales if any one is…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (38)
