Rod Salka: I Will Shock The World, Beat Danny Garcia!

By Edward Chaykovsky

"Lightning" Rod Salka (19-3, 3KOs) is prepared to put in the fight of his life against WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (28-0, 16KOs) on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The big underdog is not only predicting a big upset, he predicts his performance will leave absolutely no doubt on who the winner is. The fight is a non-title ten rounder and a catch-weight of 142-pounds has been agreed upon for the fight.

"I'm going to shock the world by winning, winning decisively and proving that I belong. Not just for one night but that I belong for a very long time," Salka said. 

While fans and experts alike are predicting a one-sided beatdown, Salka believes Garcia is taking him very seriously. Garcia had a lackluster performance earlier this, when he walked away with a controversial decision win over Mauricio Herrera. Salka is expected Garcia to return stronger than ever to prove the Herrera fight was nothing more than a bad night.

"I don't think Garcia is underestimating me. I don't think he would anyway, but especially after the (Mauricio) Herrera fight he even more feels like he has something to prove. I think I'm going to get the best Danny Garcia we've seen in a long time," Salka said.

"I'll watch all of my fights one hundred times because I can control what I'm doing right all the time, but he can change it up from last time. So I can't put too much stock into his last fight."

[QUOTE=theface07;14835971]Am I reading this wrong or did somebody just say Salka is the hardest puncher Danny has faced yet?? I don't know if you're on glue or thinking about someone else but Salka has 3 KOs in his 19 wins.…
