Via Chris Williams: Danny Garcia says he wants to fight against Keith Thurman, Mikey Garcia and Kell Brook when he returns to the ring. Garcia’s return is long overdue, and he’ll need to act soon, or it’ll be too late.
A rematch with ‘One Time’ Thurman (30-1-1 22 KOs) will be interesting for Danny if he convinces the former 147-lb WBA/WBC champion to take it.
Thurman has called Errol Spence Jr, and he may be in luck this year if ‘The Truth’ beats Yordenis Ugas next month in their reunification fight on April 16.
Former two-weight world champion Garcia (36-3 21 KOs) has not been in a fight since his loss to IBF/WBC weight champion Errol Spence Jr in December 2020. However, he shows. interest in restarting his stalled career.
Danny says a match against WBO welterweight champion Terence ‘Bud’ Crawford is the one he wants because they both have “history“From their amateur days.
Garcia just turned 34 on March 20, and it’s clear he’ll need to get up early if he doesn’t want to be completely forgotten by the boxing public.
“I can’t say any names yet, but I would love to fight Thurman again. I would love to play against Kell Brook,” Danny Garcia told Against TV Hub. “I like so much fight Mikey Garcia or maybe Crawford Fight. Not next, but it’s a big fight because we have a history. ”
Danny may be too late to fight 35-year-old Kell Brook as he is expected to hang up his gloves after one more fight.
If Garcia wanted to fight former IBF heavyweight champion Brook, he should have done it a long time ago because his career has sunk since successive defeats to Gennadiy Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr in 2016 and 2017 respectively. .
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Danny Garcia’s net worth is 8 million dollars. You can only imagine how much money Danny would have made had he been active in the past two years since his defeat to Spence in 2020.
That’s how it goes, though. It may be too late for Danny to get the big fights he’s talking about because the only ones worth it, Thurman and Crawford, are trying to get their hands on the fight with Spence.
Danny said of Crawford: “I felt he needed someone like me. “There wouldn’t be a big game in the welterweight division without Danny Garcia. All you have to do is look at the numbers.
“When Thurman fought me, there were 16,500 people in the Barclay Center [in 2017]and 5 million people watching. In his next fight as he fights Josesito Lopez [after two years out of the ring in 2019]there was nobody in the stands, nobody was interested in the fight,” said Garcia.
Danny’s fight with Thurman could be ancient history, according to young boxing fans. That fight took place in 2017, and it’s been way too long for newer fans of the sport to hear about it.
Danny and Thurman should have rematched years ago instead of now or next year.
Will boxing fans still be excited to see Danny and Thurman fight 5 or 6 years later? Some might, but not nearly as much as it could.
“When I fought Porter, we brought 14,000 people into the Barclays Center [in 2018] and did crazy numbers on Showtime,” said Danny. “In the next battle, he fought Ugas [in March 2019] in California, and no one was there. No one even cared about the war.
“All you have to do is look at the numbers. There’s no big game in the welterweight division without Danny Garcia. The numbers don’t lie. All you have to do is look at the scorecard,” says Garcia.
