Unified super lightweight world champion Danny “Swift” Garcia and WBC interim lightweight world champion Lucas “The Machine” Matthysse held an international media conference call to discuss their co-featured title fight taking place September 14 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, topping the undercard for Mayweather vs. Canelo.
Danny Garcia: I fought big punchers before. I’ve taken big shots before. I’m gonna do what I do, be smart and get the victory…I don’t really care what people think. I know I’m the best and on September 14, the people who don’t believe will see that…I feel like I’m before my time. Im not supposed to be here right now, but I made it my time. I took it.
Lucas Matthysee: I knew fighting Lamont Peterson was gonna be tough and it ended up being easy. Danny Garcia is tough but my last fight gave me confidence. Danny Garcia is a differant kind of fighter. I’m not expecting an early KO. Whoever has more resistance will take the fight.
