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 ďSwiftĒ 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 Venezuelaís 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

ďIíve been training hard. Iíve seen Granados fight a few times and I know what he can do. Iím 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.

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

ďThis 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 heís coming to fight, but Iím looking to make this one of my easiest wins.

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

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

ďI plan on winning with style. Iím going to bring a lot of skill, a lot of will, a lot of power and Iím going to entertain my fans. April 20 will be the ĎDanny Garcia Show.íĒ

ADRIAN GRANADOS

ďThis is going to be a great fight. Weíre two fighters who bring it. Iím coming for a victory in dominating fashion. This is the fight that Iíve wanted for a while now.

ďI havenít had the easiest road and thatís why Iím looking to get my respect in this fight. Iím looking forward to this. Itís going to be a barnburner. May the best man win.

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

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

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

TOM BROWN, President of TGB Promotions

ďPremier 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 weíre 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.

ďDanny 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. Iím so excited to have him back in California on this great card.

ďAdrian 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 itís in his opponentís backyard. Heís a battle-tested veteran whoís 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.Ē

LEONARD ELLERBE, CEO of President of Mayweather Promotions

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

ďDanny has shown that heís an elite fighter, because heís beaten a number of great world champions. Adrian Granados always comes to fight. Heís 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.

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