I’m thinking Danny Garcia is fighting Lamont Peterson. But no! They are not fighting each other. And boxing media, fans rant about it.
Undefeated and unified light welterweight champion Danny Garcia will be back in the ring against little known or shall I say “absolutely unknown” Rod Salka in a triple header along with IBF 140-pound titleholder Lamont against, I think another also unknown Edgar “El Chamaco” Santana and Brooklyn’s own Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs will challenge Australia’s Jarrod “Left Jab” Fletcher for the vacant WBA World Middleweight Championship.
However the real eyebrow-raiser here is Garcia who fought a fighter who is not even in the top ten or even top 30 of the 140 division, because he’s from lightweight division 🙂
“I can’t wait until August 9th. Its going to be a stacked card, and August 9th is going to be my night.” Garcia said during the press conference on Wednesday. But it’s very obvious that he owns the fight the moment this fight is sealed. I hate to underestimate Salka. I don’t even know him. But he should earn his spot before having a shot at the world title. What those rank number one down to number 10 will feel?
“I’m coming to work. I’ve been working really hard, and my whole boxing career I’ve worked to put myself in position to fight for a championship or a title.” Salka said on the same presscon.
So, I have my own rant also in this match-up. But who cares about my rant, and if you do, you can find it here. Anyway I compile here boxing media, fans rant on Garcia-Salka match-up.
