Danny Garcia is squared-away to face Lamont Peterson on PBC tomorrow. TMZ was also just able to get to the source of Garcia's competitive advantage in the boxing ring, the six toes he has on his right foot. A reporter asked him to reveal something embarrassing about himself that the world doesn't know, and Garcia mentioned the extra digit he carries on his foot as something he used to be self-conscious about - before realizing the edge it gives him in the ring.

"That's why I'm never off balance and I've never been down," Garcia says.

There you have it people, Danny is a mutant with a crappy superpower. If you want to see video footage of Danny's revealing, hit the link above. Both Danny and Lamont will be meeting on NBC tomorrow at 143lbs, in a catchweight fight between two 140lb title holders. Despite the catchweight, this should be a competitive match-up for both guys and we'll see if Danny's extra little piggy can pay any dividends.
