According to the father/trainer of Danny Garcia, there will be a rematch against Keith Thurman. It’s sort of a sharp departure from his previous statements, however, as he’s previously said that he doesn’t believe in rematches and that he doesn’t think Danny should get one.

Now, with more time to construct his thoughts, Angel Garcia released this video talking about what’s to come.

To me still the champ of the world love him very much

“First of all I want to say thank the fans. And the judges - we had a blind seal in the house. So we had an old seal, blind seal. So what I want to say is that we got a rematch with ponytail. Ain’t gonna be no rock unturned. To me Danny won the fight, they gave it to ponytail - it’s cool - but we’re getting a rematch, we’re gonna tear his ass apart. To the fans, I love ya’ll. God bless.”

There’s been no word of a rematch clause in the contract for Thurman-Garcia but who knows, it’s certainly possible - although I’m slightly skeptical. I guess we’ll see how this all pans out going forward.
