Garcia prepares for a potential comeback at 154 pounds. Danny Garcia expressed his desire to seek redemption against Errol Spence Jr. and Keith Thurman before retiring from boxing.

Philadelphia’s Garcia, with a record of 37-3 (21 KOs) and now 36 years old, has not competed since securing a majority decision victory over Jose Benavidez Jr (32-3 ,19 KOs). in July 2022.

“I would love to fight Errol Spence for a rematch, I would love to avenge at least one of my losses before this is all said and done. If I can get a rematch with one of those guys and come back and fight another fight, that would be crazy,” said Garcia in media reports.

Garcia mentioned that he currently weighs 168 pounds with his clothes on and expressed a preference to face Thurman over Spence if given the opportunity when he returns to the ring at 154 pounds. Despite having lost decisions to both fighters, he emphasized his ongoing desire to compete again, regardless of the opponent.

Additionally, Garcia stated that he has been in contact with PBC head Al Haymon and recently welcomed a third child into his family, keeping him occupied outside of boxing.
“I want to fight, but right now it’s a timing thing. I’m not getting younger, but I’m also not damaging my body. When I fought Benavidez in 2022, my mindset was, ‘I’m gonna fight in 2023 and fight in 2024, and let me see what I wanna do,'” he added.

During those years, there were no bouts scheduled for him, but he was optimistic that a match against Cuba’s Erislandy Lara (36-3 18 KOs), would lead to him securing the WBA middleweight championship and subsequently setting up a mega-fight.

            “Right now, I have to get a fight and build it into that. I want to fight and then do a big fight. I’m a PBC fighter, and right now they don’t have a schedule. They’re basically doing just a fight at a time, that’s what it looks like. So I don’t think there’s no date after the Gervonta Davis [June 15] fight, so right now it’s about timing,” continued Garcia.

            “What’s the latest with Florida Man?”
