Angel Garcia: Peterson Faces Algieri, Winner Gets Danny

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

The upcoming doubleheader on August 9th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, appears to be an interim-showcase for a planned junior welterweight unification bout between WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia (28-0, 16KOs) and IBF champion Lamont Peterson (32-2-1, 16KOs).

Peterson will be facing Edgar Santana in the co-feature, and Garcia appears in the main event against Rod Salka. Showtime will televise both fights.

But Danny's father and trainer, Angel Garcia, has a better idea. He feels that Peterson, should he win, trade punches with newly crowned WBO champion Chris Algieri (20-0, 8KOs) - and then the winner would face Danny with all four titles at stake - which sets things up for Danny's attempt to become the first Puerto Rican boxer to hold all four major sanctioning belts at once.

"They fight each other and the winner out of that, they sanction those belts and then [Danny] becomes the first Puerto Rican to win all four belts in the division. That would be better. They fight each other and the winner fights us," Angel told BoxingScene.com.

"It would nice if they fought each other, sanction the WBO and IBF, and then [the winner fights us] for all four belts. The whole enchilada. Let them fight each other."

This sounds eerily similar like JuanMa when he was telling people that Gamboa should fight Caballero first before getting a shot against him. He then thought he would take a fight against a so called shot fighter at the time…

So since this is a non-title fight now, according to Sulaiman, the next fight will have to be a mandatory. WBC=Postol WBA=winner of Perez/Herrera So sounds like Angel doesn't want to fight Peterson until he fought Algieri

[QUOTE=animalfan10;14723211]Garcia already whopped Bumthysse....No need for them to rematch....It would be the same outcome. Garcia vs Algieri would be good since Algieri just beat Provo.[/QUOTE] matthysse is a bum ? :facepalm: your posts here are even worse than the drivel…

[QUOTE=wiz1030;14722261]Pathetic. If they wanted to be undisputed they should go get the belts themselves.What kind of champ takes that approach and then fights bums in the meantime? #boycottGarciaSalka[/QUOTE] I literally lol @ this!!!!

Maybe I'm getting old, but I miss the old fashioned cherry picking. Tyson at least was cherry picking an inactive/retired Holmes, De la Hoya 's cherry picking went all wrong with Pacman. Floyd fought Baldomir who at least had a…
