Garcia goes out on a limb, makes round prediction for Guerrero fight

Former super lightweight king Danny Garcia has made a bold statement in the build-up to his world welterweight title clash with Robert Guerrero by giving a Muhammad Ali-style round prediction.

Garcia has oozed confidence since the fight was announced – as the American has been in top form for some time now – going to far as to say that he expects the contest to be over before the midway point this weekend.

“I just feel like I’m the better fighter. I’m one of the best fighters in the world., I got to go in there and be the best Danny Garcia and have a great performance,” said Garcia.

“I’ve just got to go in there and get the job done like I always do. I’m not really worried about what’s next on the agenda or anything like that. Our main focus is to get the job done and that’s what we’re preparing ourselves for. Then we can talk about future opponents after the fight.

“I see the things he likes to do and the things he doesn’t like. I’m just preparing myself for anything. I’d like to say Danny Garcia wins by TKO. Round five.

“I’m expecting a great Robert Guerrero and I’m focused on Robert Guerrero. I’m focused, I’m training hard. So I’m prepared for whatever I’ve got to do to get this victory,” he added.

Garcia, 27, knows victory over ‘The Ghost’ would most likely lead to a first defense of the WBC title against old rival Amir Khan and the chance to prove his original knockout victory back in 2012 was no fluke.
