Danny Garcia Next Fight Manny Pacquiao? Danny Swift: 'God Blessed Me With These Hammers,' Reveals Ringside Comments To Adrien Broner? [VIDEO]
Danny "Swift" Garcia's next fight is up in the air. Rumors had been swirling that he'd take on Adrien "The Problem" Broner after Broner's fight with Marcos Maidana, however "El Chino" had other plans. Maidana floored Broner twice, en route to a unanimous decision, leaving Broner's career in flux and Garcia once again without a surefire, bankable opponent.

Garcia figured to be in the mix for a Floyd Mayweather fight, but his name barely comes up, with rumors instead focusing on Amir Khan and Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather made recent comments though distancing himself from Pacman talks; with Pacquiao's next opponent also uncertain Garcia may be a perfect foil.
Mayweather's main point in dashing hopes of a Floyd-Manny clash is that Pacman is just 1-2 in his last three fights, one of them being a vicious knockout. Floyd admitted Manny was impressive in his win over Brandon Rios, but diminished the victory by saying Rios was a pumped-up lightweight, while Mayweather is a true welterweight.
In that case, Garcia would be ideal in that a victory over the undefeated 140-lb. king, who is eyeing a move to 147 lbs., would prove that Manny is truly "back." At the same time, Garcia said he would not be intimidated whatsoever to face Pacquiao.
"I'll fight anybody, I'll knock anybody out," Garcia said. "God blessed me with these hammers." When asked about Pacquiao's noted tax problems, Garcia didn't exactly dodge the question.
"I pay all my taxes. I drop the check off right to City Hall myself. I don't have no accountants no nothing. Too many people in his camp. Too many boxers have done that already to keep doing that, you know what I'm saying?"
Garcia also revealed what he said to Broner during his loss to Maidana. Garcia could be seen yelling instructions from his seat to "The Problem," whom Garcia considers a friend.
"I was just telling him to keep his hands up, because he was getting hit with punches that he wasn't supposed to get hit with. He was standing in front of him with his hands down."
