Danny Garcia may not have a big fight coming next, but he wants one.

After a strong performance last Saturday night and a stoppage win over Adrian Granados, Danny Garcia visited Inside PBC Boxing to talk about what might be next for him.

“I want the rematch with Shawn (Porter), I really want the rematch with (Keith) Thurman,” he said. “(Manny) Pacquiao said he really wants to fight me, so let’s see how that goes. And then you’ve got the Errol Spence fight out there.”

Garcia (35-2, 21 KO) sounded particularly interested in fighting Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KO), who may be getting up there in years at 40, but is still probably the biggest actual star in the welterweight division.

“I think Manny Pacquiao believes he’s just better than everybody. I had a great performance, but I think he just thinks he’s better than the new generation,” Garcia said. “I wanna prove that it’s a new generation. I’m not waiting on (the call), it’s on him. But it is what it is, if he wants to fight me, let’s get it on, I’m here. But if not not, we all can get it in.”

Pacquiao, meanwhile, appears headed for a July 20 fight with Keith Thurman on FOX pay-per-view. And with Porter, who was in the studio with Garcia, possibly facing Errol Spence Jr in a title unification this summer or fall, as well, that could leave Garcia on the outside looking in with the PBC welterweight situation.

But Garcia sounds like he’ll just move forward, whatever happens, and he believes he’s still as good as anyone at 147.

“I have one of the best résumés in boxing, I’ve been in there with all the top guns. I’m still a top gun,” he said. “A couple setbacks can’t break me. I’m like a little gnat, I’m not going nowhere. I’m all over you, I’m coming back for what’s mine, I’m coming back for the gold.”

Garcia also talked about his emotional reaction to his most recent win, and about having not had sex for a while before the fight.
