By Ponciano "John" Melo Jr. 

 

A year after not seeing in the lights of the ring, the former two-weight world champion Danny Garcia is looking to get rid past of his upcoming opponent Ivan Redkach to cash in a fight with either boxing living legend Manny Pacquiao and the current number one welterweight Errol Spence Jr.

The American will face-off with the Ukrainian in a 12-round boxing match at the Barclays Center in New York on January 25th.

Concluding he dismantle his foe, with predictions in his favor, the hard-hitting Garcia will have high chances of cracking up with Pacquiao as the 41-year old WBA Super Welterweight champion is set to return this April.

Garcia’s career has been tested in fighting the top welterweights after he suffered his two defeats at the hand of the number four and five in the division namely Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter.

His current record is at 35 wins with 21 knockouts and the two losses.

Saying he will get to square off with the only eight-division world champion, Garcia will have again prove his worth as the sixth-best in the 147-weight class.

Nonetheless, he is confident about facing either Pacquiao or Spence after the Redkach fight.

"I feel like my style is dangerous for both Spence and Pacquiao," Garcia said in an interview ahead of the fight.

"For Errol, I see he likes to stand in front of his opponents and he isn't the hardest guy to hit. With Manny, I feel like my counter punching and style would also be hard for him. So, I like my chances against both of them,” he added.
