Former two-division champion Danny Garcia (34-2, 20 KOs) is getting ready to make a statement when he faces tough contender Adrian Granados in a welterweight contest on Saturday night from the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
Garcia aims to bounce back from the second loss of his pro career, after losing a twelve round decision to Shawn Porter back in September.
“I fought in this arena when I was 6-0 so it’s exciting to be back. I also won the welterweight title against Robert Guerrero in Los Angeles. L.A. has always been good to me. There’s a great atmosphere and I love fighting here," Garcia said.
Granados has given tough fights to several top boxers, and he's never been stopped.
Garcia wants to change that fact when he faces him.
“You watch Danny Garcia fights you know I’m always swinging trying to knock people out. Expect another can’t-miss fight on Saturday," Garcia said.
“I know what Granados brings to the table, but I believe in my skills and the hard work we put into camp. The plan is of course to get a knockout and look spectacular, but I’m more than ready to go 12 hard rounds.”
Garcia is being scouted as a potential opponent for both Manny Pacquiao and Errol Spence.
He's never the type to look past his upcoming opponent and intends to keep his entire focus on Granados.
“I’m ready for anybody, but I’m also not looking past Granados. At the end of the day, I have to focus on Saturday night. I have to get this victory.
“There’s a lot at stake, so I know Granados will be ready. I trained hard and I think I’m in the best shape of my life. I think I’m in better shape now than my last two fights. I can’t wait to show it on Saturday night."
