Former World Champion Talks About His Mindset Before He Enters the Ring Garcia Faces Shawn Porter in WBC Welterweight World Championship Bout This Saturday, 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT Live On SHOWTIME
Former Welterweight World Champion Danny Garcia takes you on his ring walk and explains how he prepares to enter the ring in this new digital offering from SHOWTIME Sports®.
DANNY GARCIA: THE APPROACH provides insight into Garcia’s routine as he shares his thoughts before he climbs through the ropes.
“I don’t have headphones in,” Garcia said. “I like to be relaxed. Here. I’m in the moment… As soon as I get in the ring, Pops [father Angel Garcia] goes, ‘Come on, Danny!’ I can look into his eyes and I know how he’s feeling. And when the bell rings, I’m in a whole different element.”
Garcia, the former unified 140-pound champion and former WBC welterweight titleholder, will meet the fan favorite and former welterweight champion Shawn Porter tomorrow night, September 8, live on SHOWTIME from Barclays Center, the home of BROOKLYN BOXING.
