Now 35 years of age and 40 fights in to his professional foray the consensus is that Danny Garcia is perhaps not a million miles away from calling time on his boxing career.
True as that may be, the Philadelphia native has revealed he is still has one goal on his list that is keeping the fire alive.
In a recent interview with Fight Hub TV, ‘Swift’ explained how he wants to be crowned a three weight world champion before he considers hanging up the gloves once and for good.
“I want to be a three division world champion, that’s what I want to be. ‘Cause two is good, but three is a whole different kind of legacy.”
“That’s why I want this Lara fight, because I feel like it makes the most sense for me right now as it is the fastest way for me to become three division.”
“In a perfect world, I’d love to win this fight with Lara, have one more fight and then think what I want to do with my career. I wouldn’t say that I’m thinking about retirement, but I want to be healthy when I leave, I want to be a champion and I want to be a three division.”
“That’s my dream, that’s my goal. Leave this game smart, wealthy and a great legacy and example for the kids coming behind me.”
Already a world champion at super-lightweight and welterweight, Garcia is hoping to land a title shot all the way up at middleweight against Erislandy Lara, who holds the WBA title.
That fight is not believed to be a million miles away from being signed, as per a recent interview with Lara.
