“I’ve said it before, when Danny Garcia is at his best, nobody can beat him,” said Garcia, who improved his record to 35-2 with 21 knockouts. “I had gotten a little comfortable in the past, but I put my 110 percent into this fight, and when I do, I beat everyone.”
“I hope I didn’t scare Manny Pacquiao away,” Garcia added. “I’d love a rematch with Shawn Porter or Keith Thurman, or a fight with Errol Spence Jr. I’m back.”
The statement made by Garcia will ring loud in the now so competitive Welterweight division and will set him up for various options but Granados will need to settle with the gatekeeper tag or get back to the drawing board.
Garcia, who joined the league (Shawn Porter and Adrien Broner) of those to hand Granados notable loses was fighting in southern California for the first time and said he will definitely consider fighting Top Rank Pound for Pound star and Wbo welterweight Champion Terence Crawford.
