Garcia vs Rios Pre-Fight Look With Lotierzo – As always, TBC checks in with veteran analyst Frank Lotierzo to talk about Danny Garcia’s return fight and what the rugged Rios brings to the table in this one.
We last saw Garcia (33-1) eleven months ago when he lost his WBC world title to Keith Thurman. The weight division is crowded with talent as Thurman has been joined by IBF world champion Errol Spence Jr and former super lightweight kingpin Terence Crawford at the top of the weight class. Garcia fancies himself returning to the elite of the division and for him it starts on Saturday. Rios (34-3-1) has always fought with a chip on his shoulder and at 31 years old, he does not like the feeling that he has been written off. With his most recent losses coming to Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley he needsto break through against a big-name opponent and Garcia fits the bill to a “T.” A world title shot by the end of 2018 could be up for grabs this Saturday night.
