Danny Garcia and Robert Guerrero do struggle for the vacant WBC welterweight world title in Los Angeles on Saturday. The bout signifies Garcia’s second in the 140-pound weight category while Guerrero is looking to improve on a recent record that has seen him shed two of his last four fights.
In reality there are questions over whether Guerrero is worthy of a shot at another world title having dropped of Floyd Mayweather Jr and Keith Thurman. The 32-year-old was also fortunate to beat Aaron Martinez on points after being knocked down from the American past June.
Garcia is more than deserving of his most recent title shot having outclass Paulie Malignaggi on his welterweight debut this past year, with an impressive ninth round knock-out. The boxer of Puerto Rican descent was treading water at the super lightweight division but this fight represents the first real test of his durability in this level.
The victor is very likely to be paired with Briton Amir Khan in a mandatory rematch, with the Olympic silver medallist preferring a shot at the WBC crown rather than the IBF title held by fellow-countryman Kell Brook. Garcia beat Khan via knockout in 2012 along with also his unbeaten record will take some stopping.
What they have said
Danny Garcia:”I want to thank Ruben Guerrero because he has awakened the devil. I can not wait for Saturday night to show the world what Danny Garcia is about. I feel fast, I feel strong and I will see everyone Saturday. My dad and I are chilling at this time, we’re business men. They put it off and they woke us up. That is the last thing that you want to do to us. I’m going to bring the heat. He never faced a man. I am sending a message.
“I have not felt this way in quite a while. It’s that feeling that you get when you realize you’re going to put on a great performance. I feel good. I am keeping my composure and remaining focused. Saturday night will be another night of work for me.
“I’m the type of fighter where I can be cool, but sure things bring out the anger within me. I don’t feel any tension. I’m going to go in there and be Danny Garcia. I’m likely to make alterations. I understand he wants to get filthy but we have a response for everything he has.”
