Garcia Calls For PPV Fight Next
Danny Garcia is once again in the spotlight of a major televised main event, but that is not enough for the former welterweight champion of the world.
Just under two weeks away from his return to Showtime and the Barclays Center against Ivan Redkach, Garcia believes a win gets him what he deserves, a spot on Pay-Per-View.
“My next fight should definitely be on pay-per-view,” Garcia told Boxing Scene. “I feel that I’m overdue. I should have been on pay-per-view already … We just have to take it one fight at a time. I thought I was going to fight Errol Spence Jr. [before his car accident], but things changed. I definitely need this victory to move on to bigger and better things.”
“I was the first person to stop Granados, and I proved that I’m a better fighter than him by doing what no one else could,” Garcia continued. “A lot of people said it would be a tough fight. It definitely sent a warning to all other fighters.
“Camp for Redkach has been going great. I have no injuries. I’m locked into training. We’re putting in that hard work, and we’re working smart. It’s just another day, and another dollar.”
“There are a lot of hungry fighters in Philly who want to prove it in the boxing world,” said Garcia of his hometown.
“It’s a big month for Philadelphia boxing. There’s a lot of great talent coming from the city. I don’t want to compare fighters from my city. At the end of the day, we’re all motivated and want to be the best. We’ll let the fans be the judge of who’s the best.”
