DANNY GARCIA VS. ADRIAN GRANADOS LOS ANGELES PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES

PhilBoxing.com




FORMER TWO-DIVISION CHAMPION GARCIA BATTLES ALL-ACTION GRANADOS ON PREMIER BOXING CHAMPIONS ON FOX & FOX DEPORTES ON SATURDAY, APRIL 20 FROM DIGNITY HEALTH SPORTS PARK IN CARSON, CALIFORNIA

LOS ANGELES (March 19, 2019) - Former two-division world champion Danny Swift Garcia and veteran contender Adrian Granados previewed their Premier Boxing Champions on FOX and FOX Deportes main event showdown at a press conference in Los Angeles Tuesday as they prepare to square-off Saturday, April 20 from Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by TGB Promotions and Mayweather Promotions, in association with DSG Promotions, are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased at AXS.com or at the Dignity Health Sports Park box office from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The April 20 broadcast begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and features heavyweight contender Andy Ruiz Jr. taking on Alexander Dimitrenko in a 10-round bout in the co-feature and unbeaten contender Brandon Figueroa battling Venezuelas Yonfrez Parejo in a 12-round match for the WBA Interim Super Bantamweight title.

Here is what the press conference participants had to say Tuesday from the Palms Restaurant Downtown L.A.:



DANNY GARCIA

Ive been training hard. Ive seen Granados fight a few times and I know what he can do. Im excited to be back in Los Angeles, because this is where the stars fight. This is another fight that can get me to where I want to go in my career.

My mentality is that I have to stop Granados. Nobody has stopped him and I have to do that to make a statement. Hes never fought a counter puncher like me and Im definitely the hardest puncher hes faced. Im going to showcase everything to get the stoppage.

This is another fight for my legacy. There have been a lot of great fights in my career and this is another important one for me. I know hes coming to fight, but Im looking to make this one of my easiest wins.

Hes a tough and aggressive fighter who likes to throw a lot of punches. Hes hungry, and thats the type of guy that you have to watch out for. Ive got to handle my business against Granados before I look to any bigger fights.

This is a big platform for me to perform on. Im going to show the world why Im one of the best fighters in the world.

I plan on winning with style. Im going to bring a lot of skill, a lot of will, a lot of power and Im going to entertain my fans. April 20 will be the Danny Garcia Show.

ADRIAN GRANADOS

This is going to be a great fight. Were two fighters who bring it. Im coming for a victory in dominating fashion. This is the fight that Ive wanted for a while now.

I havent had the easiest road and thats why Im looking to get my respect in this fight. Im looking forward to this. Its going to be a barnburner. May the best man win.

If hes underestimating me it will definitely be a big mistake on his part. I dont think he will though. I think he realizes now hes in for a fight. If he didnt know me before, he does now. Im going to give him a piece of my mind April 20.

I was never taken care of coming up. I always had to work harder to get to where Im at. Danny and I basically had the same accolades in the amateurs, and I always gave him kudos for what hes done in his whole career, but he doesnt know what Ive gotten through to get here.

Im coming to get my respect in this fight. Im going to make Danny fight and see what hes made of. Ive always had a chip on my shoulder but being able to take out a fighter like Danny is motivating me to another level.

TOM BROWN, President of TGB Promotions

Premier Boxing Champions has made a major commitment to bringing some of the best and biggest fights to Southern California. We started with the Wilder vs. Fury heavyweight title fight downtown in December and were back again in April at the Dignity Health Sports Park. This is the premier outdoor boxing venue in the United States and we have a great show there on April 20.

Danny Garcia is a throwback fighter. A first-ballot Hall of Famer in my opinion. At 140-pounds he took on the best in the division and never backed down from a challenge. Danny was a 2-1 underdog when he fought Lucas Matthysse, and we knew what happened after, he proved the doubters wrong. Im so excited to have him back in California on this great card.

Adrian Granados could arguably be sitting up here with a record of 27-1, since all but one of his losses have been by split or majority decision, and usually its in his opponents backyard. Hes a battle-tested veteran whos made a name for himself bringing action-packed fights to the fans. When we announced all the PBC on FOX fights, this is the one that I circled.

LEONARD ELLERBE, CEO of President of Mayweather Promotions

This is going to be a terrific fight. Ive really been looking forward to this fight because Ive known these guys for a long time. Styles make fights and in this particular matchup, we have two fighters who are all action.

Danny has shown that hes an elite fighter, because hes beaten a number of great world champions. Adrian Granados always comes to fight. Hes never ever in a boring fight. The styles mesh so well, with Danny being a world class counter-puncher and also being a superb boxer. Granados is going to force Danny to fight on the inside a lot more than usual.

I think this fight is going to bring the best out of both Danny and Adrian. Theyve both fought a number of very good fighters and been in involved in numerous debatable decisions. Theyre going to have to leave it all in the ring come April 20.
