Khan vs. Garcia: The Trainers Prediction Roundtable

by David P. Greisman

John Scully (Khan): “Khan is probably just a little too much for Garcia at this time and will gradually pull away after a few close and uneventful feeling-out rounds. I think Garcia is a game and gritty kid who feels as though this is a make-or-break type of opportunity, and he will fight with all he’s got — but Khan is on another level today, and that will show through with a late-round stoppage win.”

Eddie Mustafa Muhammad (Khan): “Danny Garcia’s father seems to be doing all the talking. I don’t see Danny or hear Danny saying anything in defense of himself, so I got to go with Amir Khan. [There’s a lack of confidence] anytime you got your father talking for you, and talking really bad. It’s just that I can’t see him winning the fight. Amir Khan wins, probably by a late-round stoppage.”

Sam Garcia (Khan): “I like Amir Khan. I like Amir Khan, but I think his boxing ability is a little bit more fundamental. He’s maybe even faster in hand speed. I know that there’s questions of his chin, but he’s showed a good chin in the last few fights, especially against guys like Maidana. If he can take those shots, and he’s confident right now, I have him winning a unanimous decision.”

Ronnie Shields (Khan): “The Garcia camp is really talking a lot for a guy who’s really young to the sport and is a very young champion. But Amir Khan —I’m a sometime Amir Khan kind of fan. Sometimes I like him. Sometimes I don’t. I like him better when he hasn’t been talking a lot. When he talks a lot, I really don’t like him a lot. This fight he hasn’t really been talking much.

“I’m going to take Amir Khan by unanimous decision. Look, Amir Khan can box, he can turn the pressure on when he wants to. He disappointed me with the Peterson fight. But I think with all the talk that’s going on right now, I just really think that’s going to motivate this kid to train even harder. I just feel Amir Khan, once he uses his boxing skills, I think he’s going to really be hard to beat. Also, I also think he’s much stronger than Garcia.”
