In his fight today, Amir Khan has vowed to knock Danny Garcia out, according to the Daily Mail.
His remarks came after Garcia’s father, Angel Garcia, made unsavoury comments about WBA champion Khan’s Pakistani heritage during the main pre-fight press conference.
“I promise you – I’ve never said this at a press conference – I will knock Danny Garcia out and win the title,” said Khan. “That will shut his dad up. I cannot wait until after the fight, when I’ve knocked his son out and I’m standing here with the titles. It’s funny when he said he’s never seen a Pakistani fight. He’s going to see a Pakistani fight, and knock his son out. I can’t wait to get in there.”
