"Danny, what's the most underrated talent you bring to this fight that people aren't considering?"

Danny Garcia

"You know, I got a lot of skill, I got a lot of experience. This is my fifth championship fight. I'm just gonna bring everything I know to the table, everything I was born to do for this fight to win it."

Luke Thomas, SB Nation

"Your father, he seems like he couldn't more excited, like your hype man. What does he do for you in a fight like this?"

Danny Garcia

"That's my right hand man, you know what I'm saying? Everybody's got that person they can trust in life. I trust him, I love him, and we're gonna get the job done."

Luke Thomas, SB Nation

"Is the power of Matthysse overrated as a skill and as a game changer in his fights, in your opinion?"

Danny Garcia

"We don't know. Our game plan is to take the power away and make the fight ours."

Luke Thomas, SB Nation

"I've heard two different things. I've heard people say from your camp you can fight backing up and it doesn't matter, I've heard other people say we're gonna fight side-to-side. What is it?"

Danny Garcia

"I'm gonna do whatever I gotta do to win the fight, basically. You know, I got a lot of boxing skill but I'm a fighter in my heart, so you never know."

Luke Thomas, SB Nation

"In the losses to Judah and Devon Alexander, what did you see in Matthysse, what is that weakness that they keyed in on?"

Danny Garcia

"He's a good fighter. I don't take nothin' away from him. I gotta go in there and be me. That's how I be confident, be Danny Garcia and win the fight."

Luke Thomas, SB Nation

"Are you on weight right now? What's your weight this morning?"

Danny Garcia

"Oh, I'm good, I'm about 142 pounds right now. I could go use the bathroom and make weight."
