Danny Garcia Rebuttals Bud
On Saturday January 25, Danny “Swift” Garcia (35-2, 21 KO’s) will take on the game and rugged Ivan “El Terrible” Redkach (23-4-1, 18 KO’s) in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. While Swift has his blinders on to a degree focusing on Redkach, he is very well aware that there are great opportunities and fights all around him.
POTENTIAL SMOKE WITH BUD
One such bout could come against WBO world welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford (36-0, 27 KO’s). The two top tier talents have already fought in the amateurs and are not shy about mixing it up again in the professional ranks. At the moment, Danny Garcia is ranked #1 by the WBO, which puts him in prime striking position to challenge for Bud’s title.
When questioned on his willingness to test his might with Bud, Swift was ten-toes down with the potential prizefight and he shared with Fight Hub TV.
“[On a fight with Crawford] Yea, I believe I am ranked #1 by WBC, WBA and WBO, so the ball is in my court! But yeah, for sure, like I said before, this is a business and anything can be made if it’s just done right. There really is not much to say, we fought for free!
…Yeah, we want the big fights for sure, we want the big fights. I have to worry about Redkach right now, I can’t overlook him and I have to go in there and dominate him and the sky is the limit after that, any fight can be made.”
ONE MORE HURDLE TO HOP
Obviously, Garcia occupies a pretty cozy position at the present time. Granted he gets past El Terrible without any major difficulty, Swift could presumably pen fights with WBC and IBF welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence (26-0, 21 KO’s), WBO champion Bud Crawford or WBA super world welterweight champion Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO’s).
And even though he is not a champion at the moment, Shawn Porter has been reported as wanting to do it again with Swift. All these bouts are against top level talents and would make for tremendous events. For these reasons, like Garcia admitted, he has no room to take Redkach lightly because if he gets past him, the sky truly is the limit.
