Danny Garcia Wants Winner Of Pacquiao vs. Broner Fight

By Keith Idec

Danny Garcia will watch with a critical eye when Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner box in a couple months.

The former WBC welterweight champion hopes to get a chance to fight the winner later in 2019. The Pacquiao-Broner bout will be announced soon, probably for January 19 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Philadelphia’s Garcia (34-2, 20 KOs) discussed facing the Pacquiao-Broner winner and other options with


“I want a rematch with either Porter or Thurman,” said Garcia, who lost a 12-round unanimous decision to Shawn Porter in their fight for the vacant WBC welterweight title September 8.

“I feel like I wanna redeem myself with those. I feel like it’s something I need to do before my career is over. But the winner out of Pacquiao and Broner, I think that would be a great fight for me, too. I think that’s actually – name-wise, Broner and Pacquiao have big names, and I have a big name, so I think that would be a great, promotional pay-per-view fight. Either or, whoever wins.”

The 39-year-old Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs) won the WBA world welterweight title in his last fight, a seventh-round knockout of Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse (39-5, 36 KOs, 1 NC) on July 15 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The 29-year-old Broner (33-3-1, 24 KOs, 1 NC) settled for a 12-round draw with former WBO welterweight champ Jessie Vargas (28-2-2, 10 KOs) in his last fight, April 21 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The 30-year-old Garcia figures Pacquiao-Broner, which will be distributed by Showtime Pay-Per-View, is a fight that could either way.

“I think it’s a 50-50 fight,” Garcia said. “You know, Pacquiao is a little older now, but he just throws more punches than Adrien. And I think that’s the key. I think Adrien has to keep up with his pace a little bit. But if Adrien can do that, I think he can win the fight. But if he lets Pacquiao out-work him, then I think Pacquiao’s gonna win.”

Not surprising. Danny has always gone after big names when they were past their primes. Nate Campbell, Erik Morales, Zab Judah, Kendall Holt. It makes his resume look a lot better than it actually is.

[QUOTE=Halama86;19247034]Manny isn't the same as he used to be, but he's still very good. Since his '05 fight with Morales (if you don't count the robberies against Bradley and Horn) he's gone 23W 2L against Matthysse, [B]Horn[/B], Vargas, Bradley, [B]Mayweather[/B],…

Hope he goes back to 140 or up to 154. Pacquiao or Broner? For a regular title?
