Rios & Garcia Look To Showcase Power Saturday
Ahead of this weekend’s WBC welterweight title eliminator, both Danny Garcia and Brandon Rios held workouts for the media on Wednesday in Las Vegas.
Garcia, coming off of a loss to Keith Thurman, said he doesn’t blame Thurman to take a rematch, and that he “wouldn’t want to fight me two times in a row.”
The Philadelphia native also claimed to the press that he isn’t worried about what Rios is doing leading up to the fight, and that even though this is a big opportunity for both fighters, he’s looking to end the night early.
“I try to knock everyone out in the first round. I’ll go and get that check. Twelve rounds or less. I’d like to get it done in under eight or six. But if not I’ll go 12 rounds. I have a great team and I’ve been training hard.”
Rios, who feels rejuvenated heading into Saturday night, and told reporters that he’s already at his goal weight for the fight and is in the best shape of his career.
“Bam Bam” also agreed with Garcia in the idea of trying to end the night early, and that he will be looking to go all out and “walk through brick walls” to walk out the winner on SAturday night.
Both men are expecting fireworks on Saturday night, and don’t believe that either fighter will be looking to “run” from the other, in what is a statement fight for both men. Rios especially is looking to prove his critics wrong, and claims that not only will he win, but he’ll be happier than ever.
“There’s going to be a smile on my face when I win this fight and I will put up my middle finger to all of you.”
