Danny Garcia is ready to go up against Mauricio Herrera in Puerto Rico on Saturday, and he will have his two titles on the line. On March 12, Bad Left Hook reported that Garcia had arrived in Puerto Rico for the fight. His latest comments about the bout ahead were also shared by the publication, and Garcia is ready to fight this weekend. Garcia said the following about the fight against Herrerra:

I am not coming here to lose my title. I am going to come and defend like always. It's not going to be easy. It's going to be a tough fight but I have prepared like I always prepare. I am ready to defend my title and win.

Garcia is definitely a winner. He is undefeated with a record of 27-0 with 16 of those wins by knockout. Garcia's last win was back in September. Herrera has a record of 20-3.

However, Garcia is also looking ahead to his next match, and he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.in the ring. He was overlooked for the Mayweather bout after his last win. A win in this bout would give him a shot. He isn't too concerned about being given the fight though. If it is happens, he will give his best in the ring. He said the following about the potential of the match, according to Boxing News 24:

I'm a boxer, at the end of the day I like to fight the best, so you know that's what my manager wanted, and that's what my team wanted, and that's what I wan. Destiny is destiny. I'm okay with whatever happens.

A win will give him a better shot at that big fight though, and he does say he wants to fight the best. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is known as one of the best in boxing.

The Garcia vs. Herrera fight isn't the only match set for Saturday night in Puerto Rico. Daniel Ponce de Leon will defend his International junior lightweight title against Juan Manuel Lopez. The third bout on the card is the heavyweights match of Deontay Wilder vs. Malik Scott.
