DANNY GARCIA and Shawn Porter will contest the vacant WBC welterweight world title on September 8 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

“I’m excited for this fight because I’m a world championship-level fighter and this gives me the chance to be back where I’ve been for so long. It doesn’t matter who it is, I’m just happy to be back and fighting for the title,” Garcia said. “There’s no pressure on me, I’m just going to come to fight. We can dance if he wants, but I guarantee I’m coming to bang with him in the middle of the ring. I feel I’m the stronger puncher, have the faster hands and am the better all-around fighter.

“I have to go in there and make adjustments and do what I do best. I’ll set the tempo and the pace and take it one round at a time.”
