  • everybody's been doubted me, Everybody's been saying, Is he gonna be a shoving himself?

  • Is he the same fighter?

  • And I'm a realist.

  • I'm a real person.

  • I feel like, you know, people should be saying that because if I see in the car accident and I'm from the outside looking in and I'll say the same thing, So for me, I just wanna put on the great performance, a great short show people, that man, he's still beating guys, punishing them and just, you know, making them quit mentally and physically.

  • So for me, I'm just gonna try to put a beating on Danny Garcia and make make it worse, beating that he ever had his boxing career.

  • Okay, then that's Earl Spence Jr talking that talk about our next guest, Danny Garcia, with us now the welterweight title on the line.

  • Danny, thank you so much for being with us this morning.

  • I want to get your reaction to what you just heard from Spence right there about beating you down.

  • Listen, I didn't heard it all before, You know, I've been in this game for a while.

  • It is easy to talk, but it's, you know it's hard to back it up.

  • Danny, The first time I talked to you was in the pre fight fighter meeting before you took on Amir Khan.

  • And when people were saying, Well, how is Danny Garcia beat Amir Khan because he was thought very highly at the time.

  • Super fast.

  • He was the man in the division, I thought, given Garcia's giving your amateur background, if you just punch with him, you're going to catch him in exchanges.

  • And you took a better shot than him and you might get him.

  • And you did.

  • But Errol Spence junior something else.

  • He's taken great shots.

  • He has punching power, hand speed.

  • He's a South Pole.

  • He's got range.

  • He could box, he can punch.

  • How do you go about beating him?

  • You know, we just have to go in there and make adjustments, you know, going there, let him feel my power.

  • You know, I'm a skillful fighter.

  • I've been in the game for a while, and I felt like he's never been in the ring in the ring with a fighter like me.

  • So, you know, I just got to go in there and make adjustments and fight hard and dig deep like I've been doing my whole career.

  • Well, for the record, I think you're great.

  • You're 36 2, the only two losses in your career with Keith Thurman and Sean Porter.

  • I've always thought that you were an excellent fighter, and I think you and I think this is gonna be a great fight.

  • I can't wait to see it, but I wanna know from your perspective what this fight means to you.

  • Because listen, were the time Right now we're looking for Errol Spence.

  • We all really want him against Terence Crawford because of the perception of them to be in the two great great fighters.

  • Obviously, we see Pacquiao still in that division.

  • We saw what he did to Keith Thurman, and you've got people speculating about what his future might hold.

  • And Danny Garcia's name doesn't get mentioned nearly as much as I think it should.

  • Knowing that how important is this fight to you in terms of your career moving forward?

  • I think this fight is very important for me.

  • You know, this is a career, you know, this is the biggest fight to date, you know, right now in my career, I've been in some big fights, but I feel like this.

  • The biggest fight right now in my career, and I have to go in there and get this victory and look good to show the people that you know, I am one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, and that's why I'm a three time champion because I've been fighting the best beating the best since you know, I stepped in on the top level.

  • She boxing people know how good you are.

  • Danny, Andi.

  • Even the loss to Thurman was a close, tough fight on but the only other loss to Porter and maybe his best career.

  • It's one of his his two best career performance, probably against you and Errol Spence, which was a very close fight.

  • If he doesn't get knocked down late, that fight could go either way.

  • But Spence is coming off of this accident.

  • This car accident, he even said from the outside, looking in, I'd have the same questions about me.

  • What do you think about him jumping right in first?

  • Fight back with a fighter like you, that's a huge risk.

  • What do you think about that?

  • is that commentary on what he thinks of you or how confident he is?

  • What do you think about that?

  • You know, at the end of the day, only only he knows what he can do, you know?

  • So I came to this camp training hard, worried about Danny Garcia and making sure that, you know, I got the right training, the right running, the right nutrition, everything just more focused on myself, you know?

  • And just prepare myself for the best arrow.

  • Spence, You know, I can't go into this fight thinking, Oh, you know, he had a cracks, and he's not gonna be the same.

  • It's gonna be easy.

  • That's not on my mind.

  • My mind is, you know, I was supposed to fight him in January, so that that was my mind set the same mindset from January.

  • Then he got to the accident.

  • Kobe happened.

  • So my mindset was fighting the best Earl Spence.

  • And that's the hard work I put in.

  • You know, I put three hard months of training camp in, and I feel great physically.

  • Danny, you've been pretty active.

  • Um, I know you haven't fought since since last January, but for the most part, you've been pretty active throughout your career.

  • Obviously, Errol Spence had that nasty car accident.

  • Why is it that you're fighting Aero Spence Junior instead of Terence Crawford?

  • I don't know the answer to that question.

  • Forgive me.

  • I'm just asking.

  • Could be businesses be something else.

  • Why does that happen?

  • You know what the answer is?
