Former world champion Danny Garcia gave his comment on the January 19 WBA welterweight championship fight between Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner in Las Vegas on Showtime pay-per-view.

?That?d be a great fight,? Garcia told Boxing Scene. ?Those are two big names, Pacquiao and Broner. And I haven?t fought either one of them. It would sell out a stadium and be a big pay-per-view fight. It would make a lot of money.?

When asked who does the think will win he responded: ?I know a lot of people are picking Pacquiao. I?m going to go with Broner in an upset. He?s younger. I think the concern is that Pacquiao is going to outwork him. If (Broner) lands cleaner punches and ups his work rate a little bit, I think he can win the fight.?

Garcia wants to face the winner of the fight and he believes he can defeat either fighter. ?I?ve never doubted myself,? he said. ?I know I?m one of the best ? I know I?m the best.?

Danny Garcia has encountered the biggest names in boxing which are in his division: ?I fought more (big) fights than any other fighter on this stage.?

Garcia has fought Erik Morales (twice), Amir Khan, Zab Judah, Lucas Matthysse, Lamont Peterson, Paulie Malignaggi, Robert Guerrero, Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter.

Garcia lost a close 112-116, 113-115, 113-115 unanimous decision to Porter for the vacant WBC welterweight title in his last fight in September. His only other defeat was a 112-116, 113-115, 115-113 split decision loss to Keith Thurman in March last year. Garcia now has a career record of 34-2 with 20 knockouts.

Garcia is a former world champion in two weight classes, having worn the unified WBA Super, WBC, Ring magazine and lineal light welterweight title belts between 2012 and 2015, and the WBC welterweight title belt from 2016 to 2017.

Meanwhile Pacquiao and Broner will formally announce their fight details on November 19, Monday in New York. Pacquiao is 60-7-2 and 39 knockouts in a career that began in 1995, turns 40 in December while Broner is 33-3-1 with 24 knockouts.

The Pacquiao and Broner press conference on Monday will be at New York's Gotham Hall and Tuesday at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills, California to promote their title fight, which is set on January 19 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
