Amir Khan vs. Danny Garcia: Live from the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas
On Saturday night WBA junior welterweight champion, Amir Khan, will face WBC champ, Danny Garcia, in a three-title unification bout at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and i will be there ringside to give you the blow-by-blow action.
Not only are the two fighters putting their respective belts on the line Saturday, but the vacant The Ring title will also be awarded to the winner of the bout.
Khan (26-2, 18 KOs) is one of boxing's biggest rising stars and a win over Garcia (23-0, 14 KOs) will only get him one step closer to a mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather down the line.
Garcia is looking to keep his undefeated record intact in addition to gaining the marquee win of his career; which should put him on the map.
The two fighters camps have been going back-and-forth during pre-fight press conferences and there should be plenty of action once Khan and Garcia are in the ring.
Khan vowed to knock Garcia out and Garcia has guaranteed to back up his overly vocal father/trainer, Angel Garcia's trash talk that has come before each of his fights and push his win streak to 24.
Check back later tonight for all the action between Khan and Garcia, as well as full recaps of the undercard bouts live from the Mandalay Bay.
