Khan vs Molina: Angel Garcia might work Molina's corner, oversee hand wrapping

Controversial trainer Angel Garcia may be in Carlos Molina's corner this weekend, five months after many believe Garcia got into Amir Khan's head before his son Danny knocked Khan out in Las Vegas.

In July, there was a strong feeling that trainer Angel Garcia had gotten into the head of Amir Khan during press conferences leading up to Khan's bout with Danny Garcia, Angel's son, for whom he also serves as lead trainer. Now, hoping to possibly get a psychological edge, the Carlos Molina camp is looking to get Angel Garcia involved this Saturday in their corner.

Frank Espinoza, manager for Molina, says they'd like Garcia to oversee the wrapping of Khan's hands before the fight:

"Don't be surprised if you see Angel in Khan's dressing room on Saturday. We want to make sure his hands are properly wrapped. Angel has a good eye."

In another troll moment, Espinoza said recently that they would bring a stretcher to the ring for Khan's trip back to the locker room after the fight:

"We already reserved the stretcher. I purchased a very comfortable Beautyrest mattress. I don't want the British fans to be angry with us. I want to make sure Amir is comfortable when his team rolls him to the back."

Angel Garcia recently made headlines with more press conference ruckus, which resulted in a pull-apart between he and Zab Judah, Garcia's next opponent.

What's your feeling here? Funny, attention-getting stuff, or true B.S. from the Molina camp?
