Salka Warns: When I'm at My Best, Nobody Can Beat Me!

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Rod Salka (19-3, 3KOs) is a huge underdog in his upcoming Showtime televised fight against WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (28-0, 16KOs) on August 9th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The fans and the writers have been very vocal about their displeasure with the fight. Salka, a lightweight who is unranked at 135 and 140, is now facing the man regarded as the best junior welterweight in the world.

"I don't worry about what anybody else says, because what anybody else says I can't control. I don't worry about any of that stuff - the rivalry, the hype - all that stuff, to me that's a distraction and I don't need any distractions," Salka told BoxingScene.com.

"Stylistically I line up well with anybody in the world. I don't think that there is anybody in the world, when I'm at the top of my game, that I can't beat. And I plan on proving that on August 9th. Danny Garcia, as everybody knows, is a good puncher. He was a good amateur. He can punch, he can box. That's what you are going to get at this level - well, so can I. We're going to get in there August 9th and see who's the better man that night."

[QUOTE=MrTambourineMan;14730562]I wouldn't be surprised if we found out Salka was actually an actor playing the part of a Boxer.

[QUOTE=VG_Addict;14731490]I kind of hope Danny knocks him out cold, after all the trash talking Salka's doing.[/QUOTE] "Trash talking"? What do you expect him to say? You want him to doubt himself or something?
