On this episode of PBC Jabs we recap our thrilling
February 10th Bounce TV world title doubleheader, welterweight champion Danny Garcia has a message
for his haters and we preview our upcoming fight cards. Welcome back, boxing fans. I’m your host Jordan Hardy and this is PBC
Jabs. PBC returned to Bounce TV on Friday, February
10th, for two world title fights. In the co-main event Rau’shee Warren made
his first 118-pound title defense against Zhanat Zhakiyanov. Warren scored two first-round knockdowns but
it was Zhakiyanov who stuck to his game plan. The hard-charging Zhakiyanov wore down Warren
over the course of the fight and earned the title by split decision. Then in the main event, Robert Easter Jr.
made his first title defense in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio. Easter dominated his opponent Luis Cruz, flooring
the Puerto Rican challenger in Rounds 10, 11 and 12! Although Easter didn’t get the knockout,
he did more than enough to retain his title by unanimous decision and give his hometown
fans a night to remember. Speaking of exciting championship bouts, the
Keith Thurman vs Danny Garcia welterweight title unification is only two weeks away and
joining us now is the WBC champ Danny “Swift” Garcia. Danny, thanks for joining us on Jabs. —Thank you for having me on. I appreciate it. —Do you feel like taking on Keith Thurman
in this major unification will silence some of your haters? —By the looks of it, I think I’m gonna have
haters for the rest of my career. I’m not worried about silencing no haters. My job is to go in there and get the job done,
so it is what it is. I know I got a lot of fans who love me so
that outweighs the bad. —What will it mean to you to defeat Thurman
and unify the division? —It’s gonna put me back where I belong,
unified champion. Most of the time, me being a champion, I was a unified
champion, I’ve been a champion for five or six years already, and it’s gonna put me back
where I belong. I’ve unified two of the hardest divisions
in boxing. What more can I say? —What does it mean to have had your father
in your corner your entire career? —It feels good, man. Me and pops got a good relationship. We’ve got good chemistry. We come up with a good game plan. He keeps me focused like a trainer’s supposed
to do. We’re like Batman and Robin. —What’s your message for Keith Thurman? —You know, I’m a man of—I really don’t
say a lot of things but, you know, come March 4th I’ll be unified champion again. He got what he wished for. I’m gonna pay him with a reality check. Thanks for checking in with us and good luck
on March 4th! Before we get to Thurman-Garcia, we’ve got
