Amir Khan raring for re-match against Garcia despite broken hands
Amir Khan vs Carlos Molina fight has resulted in broken hands of the Pakistani-British boxer, which might prove to be a hindrance in his plans of world domination. The Amir Khan fight result proved his detractors wrong as he slammed Molina in a contest, which could be deemed as a one-sided fight.
Despite the injury to his hands the boxer is eager to take it out with Garcia for a world title. The injury to Amir’s hands could take up upto five months to heal depending on whether surgery is required or not, though nothing can be confirmed yet. The boxer would be waiting anxiously for his doctor and trainer to give him a green signal for fighting Garcia and Peterson.
Talking about the wanting a re-match with Garcia, Khan said, “I’d love the rematch against Garcia because I know deep down I’m a better fighter than him. I made a mistake in that fight and I paid for that. I know I can beat him, especially with the help of my new trainer Virgil Hunter and being based in San Francisco. I’ll knock Danny Garcia out. We want the rematch – any time, anywhere – but I don’t think Garcia will.”
Garcia is scheduled to defend the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association light-welterweight belts against Zab Judah in the next year, but expressed his consent for a re-match anywhere and anytime. Garcia said, “If the money’s right then we’ll definitely fight whenever and wherever. My team will make the decision.”
Many experts believe that the fight against Molina was a easy cookie for Amir Khan due to his fast style of boxing, but the fight against Garcia, if it happens, might bring a different story. Khan has already been knocked out by Garcia three times in his career. Amir’s coach has also expressed the same concern by stating that Khan is not ready to fight on the inside yet.
