Salka: True Boxing Fans Will Watch Danny Garcia Fight!

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Rod Salka (19-3, 3KOs) is not bothered by the widespread criticism from boxing journalists who labeled his upcoming fight with Danny Garcia, the WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion, as a mismatch.

Salka, not regarded by most as a top lightweight, is heading to 140-pounds to challenge Garcia on August 9th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Showtime has taken a beating in the press from pundits who believe Garcia should be facing a far more worthy opponent.

"When I got the call I told them to sent me the contract as soon as you can. They sent it within minutes and I signed it within minutes and it was a done deal," Salka told BoxingScene.com.

"I’ve never in my life cared what anybody had to say about me. Their job is to do that. I don’t care what they’re saying. They’re still talking about [the fight]. Whether they say it's terrible or not. I hope if you’re a true fan of boxing you’re still watching the fight. If you’re not a true fan of boxing then you won’t. If you’re calling yourself a journalist or a fan or whatever, then you’re a true fan of the sport and you are going to watch the fight for whatever reason, just because you love the sport of boxing. And then maybe I will give them all my cards so they can call and apologize after the fight."

What grown man wants to be called a "fan" anyway? I am not a "fan" nor do I feel any personal loyalty to any of these guys, I just like watching people hit each other. Note the "each other" part. Watching one guy hit a random bum they flew in to lose isn't interesting.

When was the last time Garcia won by KO? Was it against an old and shot Morales? So they need to bring a unknown lightweight contender with only 3 wins by KO and somehow the guy is going to get high rated so the Philly boy can count this fight as a "valid" defense. All of this only happening beca...

Nope sorry didn't read. But the title says it all. True boxing fans expect good, solid matchups. This isn't one. True story.
