Redkach looking to upset Garcia on Saturday

" Danny is now expecting a battle with Errol Spence Jr. or Manny Pacquiao, however prior to he gets to them, he chose me", he states as a suggestion". Spence suffered a awful one-car crash in October and although he amazingly made it through, any ideas of the bout taking place throughout the very first quarter of 2020 were shelved forever. Spence, however, suffered a bad vehicle accident in October, and although he had miraculously survived, there was no thought about the struggle that took place during the first world champion's quarter of 2020 was indefinitely suspended.

In the seventh round, as if Redkach didn't have enough problems with Garcia, he sustained a cut over his left eye. His opponent, Francisco Santana, was 155 on the nose. And 31-year-old Garcia (35-2, 21 KOs) agrees.

"You have to fight every fight like it's your last because it could be", Garcia said. I know that you can't overlook anyone. This is a very important fight for me and my future. I know it's because I'm a southpaw [as they are]. The nephew of former two-division world champion Lamont Peterson and his brother Anthony, Harris comes from a boxing family.

The reason everyone is paying Redkach (29-4-1, 18 KOs) no attention in this fight is that he's making the jump up a weight class to face Garcia.


"We picked Redkach because he's unsafe and we knew he'd be tough", Garcia said.

Danny Garcia's 13-year career has made him well-known in the world of boxing. "I want to show everyone I'm still one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world".

Garcia vs Redkach undercard comprises six bouts. "I've been the underdog and won, I've been the top dog and won and I've been in the biggest magnitude of fights", Garcia said. "We wanted the southpaw work for that fight or a Pacquiao fight". Jack would come in and watch us train, but he didn't really participate.

Redkach, who defeated former welterweight champion Devon Alexander in his last outing, is hoping Garcia is looking past him.


"The biggest weakness I see in Danny is that he's not taking this seriously", Redkach said at a media workout Wednesday in Brooklyn. The fight was allowed to go on but Garcia, who was headlining at Barclays Center for the eighth time since the building opened in 2012, continued to dole out punishment. "And when I touch him to the body, simply may put 2 more upstairs".

" He's starving", Garcia states of the Ukrainian, "so I got to be on my "A" video game and do what I got to do to control him".

Redkach, 33, a Ukraine native fighting out of Los Angeles, was a decorated amateur with a record of about 260-40, and he was considered one of boxing's top prospects. A stablemate of undefeated two-time super featherweight and current WBA Lightweight Title holder Gervonta Davis, Simpson was a 12-time National Champion and six-time Silver Glove Champion as an amateur.
