Premier Boxing Champions on ESPN featured fighters were joined by local Brooklyn favorites featured on this Saturday's undercard for a media workout at Gleason's Gym in advance of their respective showdowns at Barclays Center.
Saturday's headlining event features undefeated star Danny "Swift" Garcia (30-0, 17 KOs) as he takes on two-time world champion from Brooklyn Paulie "The Magic Man" Malignaggi (33-6, 7 KOs) in a 12-round welterweight tilt. Here is what Garcia had to say about the fight:
"You're going to see a lot more energy in the ring. You'll see a smarter fighter. I'll have more agility and we're going to go in there to get the job done.
"We're just working hard. At the end of the day it's about being 100 percent prepared. I did everything right this camp and I'm ready.
"The game plan is to go in there and be Danny Garcia and be spectacular. I don't know which Paulie to expect but I'm prepared for any version of him we see. I'm sparring a lot of guys who move and guys who come forward so I'm ready for anything.
