Rios: I'd Fight Angel in a Parking Lot, Danny in The Ring

By Rick Reeno

Junior welterweight contender Brandon Rios (31-0-1, 23KOs) is confident that he can do a real number on WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia (25-0, 16KOs).

Garcia returns to action on February 9th against former two-division world champion Zab Judah. Rios is being positioned for a shot at the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez winner, which is being targeted for April 20th.

Golden Boy Promotions, who promote Garcia, are more interesting in making a fight between Rios and hard-punching Lucas Matthysse (32-2, 30KOs). Making either match will be tough, considering Rios is promoted by Top Rank, who haven't co-promoted a event with Golden Boy in several years.

Rios has no problem with facing Matthysse, but he would much rather get his hands on Garcia first. And, Rios is fully prepared for the wild antics of Danny's father and trainer, Angel Garcia.

"I'm a warrior, I'll fight eitgher guy. It don't bother me. I'll fight them both. I'll fight Danny Garcia first, who won't be as hard, and then I'll fight Lucas Matthysse second. But that's between Top Rank and Golden Boy. I don't put my nose where it don't belong. All I do is train and be ready for the fights," Rios told BoxingScene.com.

"Garcia is busy beating up old guys and the guys he knocked out are guys with no chins. I can take a punch and I can give a punch, so why don't he man up and fight me. If his father wants to fight, I'll fight him too. I'll fight him in the parking lot and then I'll go in the ring and fight Danny."

[QUOTE=GoogleMe;12778414]**** off Rios. Get in line - Mathysse is THE contender[/QUOTE] If that was the case then Rios wont get his shot at Danny cause Matthysse will knock Garcia out cold.
