Khan Plans Quick Fight: I'm Not Paid For Overtime

By Ryan Burton

WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan is ultra confident heading into his unification bout with WBC champion Danny Garcia on Saturday. At the pre-fight press conference Khan guaranteed that he would knock out his undefeated rival. BoxingScene.com caught up with Khan after the press conference where he further elaborated on his knockout guarantee.
 
"I just know I am going to knock him out. I'm not getting paid overtime so I am just going to go in there and take care of business," Khan confidently stated.

Danny Garcia's father, Angel, who also serves as his trainer, has been very talkative leading up to the fight. Khan feels that the trash talk actually shows how little confidence the elder Garcia has in his son. 

"I think they know what they are in for and they are just trying to give Danny confidence. They know they are in a tough fight where they know Danny can get knocked out. On fight night its just going to be Danny Garcia (in the ring). His father can say what he wants," Khan told Boxingscene.

The Briton star said that he is relaxed and extremely motivated heading into what likely will be his last fight at the 140 pound limit and promised that the fans will see him put on a spectacular performance.  

"I am just so calm and collect while he is on the edge. We'll see what happens Saturday. It will be a great fight for the fans. You have two young warriors in the ring," Khan concluded.

Looks like Garcia senior got into Khans head and he fought the wrong fight.
