Garcia vs Matthysse video: Angel Garcia goes off on interviewer

Angel Garcia is disagreeable. Get it yet?

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"Hey everybody, Marcos Villegas standing here for Fight Hub TV with Angel Garcia. Angel, it's no surprise your son has a huge matchup going up against Lucas Matthysse, but a lot of the buzz has been surrounding you and a video that came out yesterday, in which you kind of went off on a tirade about Lucas and nationalities and things like that--"

Angel Garcia

"It doesn't matter. I can say what I wanna say."

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"What caused all that?"

Angel Garcia

"There's freedom of speech in America. This is America. We fight in America. I can say whatever I wanna say. If they feel offended about it, that's their tough luck, not mine. And let's get it right, Matthysse has a big fight in front of him. This is the champ of the world."

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"Looking at that fight, when Matthysse came out he got a majority of the cheers. Your son's a champion and your son is an American fighting here in Las Vegas, so when you hear people cheering for Matthysse, how does that make you feel and how does that make Danny feel?"

Angel Garcia

"When the federal government sends half of the people their check, they all cheer when it says United States government on it, huh? Half of them on welfare anyway, who cares? But when the government sends them the check, then they're Americans, huh? But all of a sudden they wanna be Argentino Valentinos. Know what I mean?"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"That's one thing, you know, to make an assumption..."

Angel Garcia

"The truth. The truth is the truth."

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"That's a whole different subject, though."

Angel Garcia

"The truth -- you better like facing the truth. The truth is the truth. And the champ of the world still, listen -- Matthysse got a big fight in front of him. Matthysse got 32 nobodies. When Danny fought he got all eyes against him. Same way now. Eyes against -- he became victorious. He wasn't made who he is like Matthysse was. He had 32 opponents. He's fighting the champ of the world, understand? 26-0. The champ of the world. Not the opponents he fight in the past. He's got his hands full. Believe what I'm telling you. And I'm not backwashing, either. I stick up for Danny anywhere. And if they feel some kinda way about it, that's their personal business. Like I said earlier, when they send the welfare check, half of them sign it when it says United States government on it. Then they're not Americans no more, right?"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"Speaking of Danny and this fight, in all the interviews I've seen you in you've mentioned that he's ordinary, Matthysse is ordinary--"

Angel Garcia

"I ain't worried about Matthysse! It's about Danny to me. If you wanna talk about Matthysse, go to Matthysse."

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"I'm trying to ask you an opinion on that."

Angel Garcia

"Ask his coach that. Don't ask me nothing about Matthysse! We talkin' about Danny! The champ of the world!"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"Alright, he's the champion--"

Angel Garcia

"Fuck Matthysse! Fuck all the Valentinos!"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"The whole issue of Danny not getting--"

Angel Garcia

"The champ?! You talkin' about the champ?!"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"Give me a second, Angel. Danny, I feel at times doesn't get enough respect--"

Angel Garcia

"It doesn't matter!"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"--because he's the champ. Coming from you, you know, of course you feel that way, so give me your thoughts on that. He's the champion and he's not being respected like that."

Angel Garcia

"Well, I just told you, I don't care. I don't care what people think. I just want you to understand, talk to me about Danny, don't talk to me about Matthysse. Matthysse is none of my business. My business is Danny. I don't care about Matthysse's life, I don't care about his people, I don't care about his family, I don't care about them! I care about Swift, Danny 'Swift' Garcia, the WBC, WBA, Ring Magazine -- well, let's leave Ring out of it, because that's another betrayers! They put an opponent on the front cover of the magazine, a guy that never won nothin'. What do he have to prove to the world that he's number one junior welterweight? What do he done?! What do he -- do you know about sports? What he done to the boxing world to be number one in the junior welterweight division? What he had done? You tell me!"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"I can tell you what people are saying."

Angel Garcia

"32 nobodies!"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"The thing I feel that a lot of the hype comes from is because he's knocked down every opponent he's faced."

Angel Garcia

"Who, bums?!"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"Alexander--"

Angel Garcia

"ALEXANDER? He didn't know Alexander out, Alexander beat him! He beat him!"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"I'm not taking sides here."

Angel Garcia

"Fuck's he talking about? He beat him! He won, Alexander won, get it right!"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"It was a very disputed decision."

Angel Garcia

"Alexander won! All that shit, get the hell outta here! Alexander won. Let's make it right. Alexander won! Zab won! It doesn't take no further than that. Alexander won, black and white. In America, it's called black and white. Paper. Black and white. Loss. Loss."

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"Looking at the matchup though, this camp, every camp you wanna guide your fighter and take him to a new level, you wanna make him improve. Seeing what happened in the Zab Judah fight, how do you feel Danny's coming into this fight? Has he improved mentally and physically?"

Angel Garcia

"Listen, listen, listen! You gonna ask me stupid goddamn questions, you gonna get stupid answers! Danny's ready, the champ of the world! Capiche?! Or you want me to tell you in Argentino? Want me to tell you in Argentino?"

Marcos Villegas, Fight Hub TV

"You mean Spanish?"

Angel Garcia

"Argentino! Atala balla bah! Fuck."
