It's nice to see that Angel Garcia is in favor of the USADA testing and is dead set on having all of his son's opponents undergo the testing. That's good to know. Danny Garcia seems like a good kid. When he talks I don't feel like he's an asshole or anything. His father was doing a lot of talking but that was to get inside the head of Amir Khan and force him to play right into Garcia's left hook. It worked so I can't say too much bad about him. This is war so whatever you can do to get a psychological advantage over your opponent, is fair according to the old saying.

I respect the fact that Garcia is the 140lbs. Champion of the World. The Ring Magazine Title is the title that says you are the best. Armed with that information, I know it will only be a matter of time before young Danny Garcia runs into a fighter who has the chin to stand up to the power, the will to stand up to a good body shot, the power/know-how to return fire, the heart to fight back if/when he gets hurt, and the where-with-all to follow up wisely. If he runs into a fighter who's totally dialed in and he's distracted even slightly, he could lose. Fighters like him who end fights with brutal knockouts can find themselves on the receiving end of a brutal knockout. It's how the game goes and karma lives within the sport of boxing. He can, and probably will be on top for a good long while. I think he has the tools to dismantle the world's best fighters on any given night. As long as he keeps his focus and fights to his strengths, he can be a force at 140. He's already the Champion of the World and the sky's the limit for Danny Swift. He needs to stay 100% dedicated because it doesn't get any easier if you want to hold on the lineal title.

Excellent. Well said.

i hear the 'he isn't selling tickets so...blah,blah,blah...' all the time. what ppl fail to realize is that selling tickets to venues isn't the only way to generate money. danny is putting together a pretty good highlight reel and chances are his ko will be a candidate for ko of the year. i've not seen him in a boring fight yet. that's good for ratings...and i'm sure his viewership is going to increase which equals more $$$.



lol thank god you are not a promoter. Your company would fold in under a year (IMG:style_emoticons/default/haha.gif)

Of course there are other ways to make revenue however the live gate is a HUGE part of that! HBO and Showtime only give you a set budget meaning they sign over a big check but its not like its a PPV where if you draw a higher rating you get more money. Bottom line Golden Boy knew Garcia aint even got full support from his own Puerto Rican people yet, so no way was he going to have Brooklyns! which is why you saw all these BK kids stacked onto this card to pick up the sales! I dont blame Danny but the fact is the main event was a kid from Philly vs an old faded Mexican which is why I think this card did not sell like the expected. If you remember DLH and Richard were saying in the early press conferences they expected 15,000 they got 10,000 with about 1,500 of those tickets being discounted or given away!

thanks for your attempt on re-educating me.

higher ratings get u back on the network and preferential treatment aka more $$$.

plenty of promoters don't hit their expected numbers but trust me...it doesn't mean they aren't making money.
