Danny Garcia Plans Eventual Move to 154
While Danny Garcia is remaining focused on earning the WBC Welterweight Title on Sept. 8, this hasn’t stopped him from thinking about the future.
Garcia was a unified light welterweight champion between 2012 and 2015 before claiming the WBC Welterweight Title with a win over Robert Guerrero in January 2016. But in his first defense, Garcia lost the title to WBA “Super” champion Keith Thurman in March 2017. Thurman vacated the WBC title earlier this year due to inactivity stemming from injury.
“I am 100 percent ready to be world champion again,” Garcia said. “I’ve worked hard, I’m motivated and anything Porter brings will not work. I don’t know if my next fight will be in another weight class, but I definitely have in the plans to go up and win more titles.”
Garcia bounced back from the Thurman loss this past February with a ninth-round knockout of Brandon Rios. And he says with a win against Porter, the value of his name will be back.
“For that fight I was super prepared and the people were the witness,” Garcia said. “On the night of September 8, we will have to see if Porter can resist. We will see which of the two has more desire to win. I always push myself to the limits and I’ll be ready for Porter.”
I’m focused on being a four-time world champion. That is my goal and at the end of the day I will achieve it.
