Angel Garcia: Rod Salka Being Treated Like a Nobody!

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Angel Garcia, father and trainer of WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (28-0, 16KOs), says upcoming opponent Rod Salka (19-3, 3KOs) is being treated like a nobody by the fans and the press. The fight headlines a Showtime televised tripleheader on August 9th from the Barclays Center in Las Vegas.

Despite being a huge underdog, Angel is not taking him lightly. They plans to train just as hard as they did for their big fights against Amir Khan and Lucas Matthysse.

"They are already saying it now [that he's a nobody]. They are already saying it and the fight is not even here. They already got the guy like he's a nobody. I'm still going to respect him as a person, because any time you put gloves [on] you have to respect that," Angel told BoxingScene.com.

"I am not going to underestimate him. We are going to train very hard. We are going to train like were training for Khan. We are going to train like were training for Matthysse. We're not taking nothing away. If anything we are going to add things].  If Danny goes out there and knocks him out, they are already saying that he's a nobody. Now if it goes the distance, they are going to say that Danny lost or whatever the f*** happens."

Angel Garcia's Logic - Khan, Judah and Matthysse are bunch of nobodies and bums. Rod Salka is the second coming of Sugar Ray Robinson - why the hate doe?
