DANNY GARCIA doesn’t provide opponents with bulletin board material. He’s not the quote machine reporters would have him be. But every so often, he’ll offer a rare peak into his psyche, such as last February after his ninth-round TKO of Brandon Rios.

While Danny basked in the glow of victory and did a post-fight interview, fellow welterweight contender Shawn Porter stormed the ring and threw shade.

“This is the Danny Garcia Show!” Garcia informed Porter, drawing a roar from the Las Vegas crowd. More verbal blows were traded, which set the stage for what many consider a potential Fight of the Year this Saturday, September 8, on a Showtime Championship Boxing card presented by Premier Boxing Champions from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
