Angel Garcia: ‘Danny Is The Most Underrated Champion’

Angel Garcia, The father and trainer of world light welterweight champion Danny Garcia believes his son is ‘The Most Underrated Champion’ in Boxing.


Garcia Snr made the statement at a media workout in Philadelphia on Wednesday whilst he prepares for his son’s light welterweight title clash against tough Argentine boxer Lucas Matthysse at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on September 14.


Talking to the assembled media Angel Garcia said: “My job is not to worry about Matthysse. I am not worried. He doesn’t put fear in me. His coach doesn’t put fear in me. His people don’t put fear in me. His country doesn’t put fear in me. Nobody puts fear in me. The only one I fear is God.


Garcia Snr added: “Nobody is beating us, not right now, not tomorrow and not in the future. Believe this, on September 14, Matthysse is going to get his ass whooped.


“Danny is the most underrated champion there is and I am the most underrated trainer. But it doesn’t matter to me. As long as I know and as long as Danny knows and we’re happy, then I don’t care what the world says.


“You can love me or hate me but it doesn’t matter. I believe in me and I believe in Danny. I always tell Danny that hard work and dedication pay the bills.


Garcia takes on Matthysse on the undercard of world light middleweight title clash between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Saul Alvarez. The obvious clash if Garcia and Mayweather Jr are victorious would be a high profile battle at welterweight but that is the last thing on Angel Garcia’s mind at the moment


“I’m not going to look to Floyd Mayweather yet because we have Matthysse first,” Garcia Snr. “We are going to worry about Matthysse. Floyd has Canelo, so they have got to worry about each other.


“You never underestimate. Never, never, never take the cake and eat it before you light the candles. I’m not going to worry about Floyd. He has his own thing and Danny has his own thing. We are going to worry about Matthysse and September 14.


“The fans should be glad and happy for such a stacked main and co-main event on PPV. The fans should be happy and love all four of them. They shouldn’t hate one and love the others; they should love all of them. This is about the fans. The fans will get the benefit.


“Matthysse is going to lose September 14. We aren’t coming to lose. The best man will win and it’s going to be Danny.
