Danny Garcia has started to wind down his training camp for March 4th’s huge Welterweight unification bout with Keith Thurman.
With the hard work coming to a close, Garcia is confident the game plan laid out by his team will be executed, with one tactic targeting Thurman’s body.
Speaking at a pre-fight media workout, the reigning WBC World Champion revealed: “We’re going to go to the body! We’ll work on everything but body shots are definitely in the game plan, that’s no secret. If he wants to box or slug, then that’s what we’ll do – I’m ready for whatever! We’ll make adjustments as we always do.”
After a confrontational fight announcement press conference, Garcia insists what’s done is done and is remaining focused: “There’s been a lot of trash talk but come fight night that’s all over.”
Victory for Garcia would see him reunited with the WBA strap, which he previously held at Super-Lightweight between 2012-2014.
“There’s no better feeling than unifying the titles! I’ve done it before at 140lbs and I want to do it again at 147lbs,” roared Garcia to FightHype.
Whilst fans and pundits alike are struggling to split the two, Garcia is in no doubt he carries more than one advantage going into the fight.
“There’s a lot of advantages to me. The Barclays Center is my second home. I’m a more patient and balanced fighter.”
Refusing to look past Thurman, Garcia acknowledges there are some potentially huge bouts out there but first and foremost must hand ‘One Time’ his first career defeat.
“There’s a lot of big fights out there. Welterweight is a glamorous division. I’ll probably fight one more time after this in 2017 but we can’t look past March 4th and first take care of business!”
