And that's exactly what Garcia does, but instead of vying for Spence's uniform IBF / WBC welterweight crown, he fights Redkach in a WBC title eliminator. I was backing him up, I utilized my jab more. "I feel like I hit Porter lightly".
While Garcia has a rematch with Thurman and Porter in mind, "Swift" gives a second fight against "One Time" more priority. I know it's because I'm a southpaw.
"I think the biggest fights for me will be the Spence, Pacquiao or Thurman fight", he continues. I want to win this fight, and then the biggest fights at welterweight will be open to me.

Garcia is also eyeing future fights with some of boxing's biggest stars, but that won't occur without a victory over Redkach, the clear underdog in this bout when comparing resumes.
"He is hungry", says Garcia of the Ukrainian, "so I have to play my A game and do what I have to do to dominate him".
Redkach (23 -4 -1, 18 KOs) isn't always purchasing it.
Rounding out the undercard attractions are Staten Island's Kenny Robles (7-1, 3 KOs) in an eight-round super lightweight fight against Patterson, New Jersey's Rickey Edwards (12-4, 3 KOs), heavyweight prospect Steven Torres (1-0, 1 KO) from Reading, Pennsylvania taking on Williamsville, New York's Dakota Witkopf (1-1, 1 KO) in a four-round bout and the pro debut of East Orange, New Jersey's Rajon Chance in a four-round super bantamweight duel versus Rockville, Maryland's Akihiro Nakamura (1-0). And he's going to let Garcia pay for it. "I know I'm a south paw (like Spence).More news: Dolly Parton sparks 'LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder' photo trend
I'm totally locked in on (Redkach)", Garcia said Saturday while hanging out in the dressing room of Temple University's Liacouras Center before fellow Philly Native Julian Williams unsuccessfully defended his 154-pound title. "But he's going to get a rude wake up on fight night". Referee Thomas Taylor immediately waved an end to their fight once Alexander went down that third time at Soboba Casino Resort in San Jacinto, California.
"Danny is already looking ahead to a fight with Errol Spence Jr. or Manny Pacquiao, but before he gets to them, he picked me", noted Redkach, who is hoping to snatch Garcia's spot in the next round of eliminators. He remains unimpressed and ready as he tries to etch the next few chapters of his fighting legacy.
" It truly does not matter", Garcia states of the talk.
