Amir Khan is looking to send a message on Saturday night in Las Vegas after yet another fiery press conference that involved Danny Garcia's father and trainer making a number of disparaging remarks.
Angel Garcia has been outspoken throughout the build up to the fight and he once again got under the skin of Khan with his comments about the Brit's heritage, saying that he'd never seen "a Pakistani who can fight".
"If he were American, nobody would care. Khan has never faced a Latino like Danny," said Garcia Sr. "This is Latino blood, a nation. We are going to show the world who is the boss."
It was not the first time that Khan has had to listen to the comments from Angel Garcia and it certainly seems to have added some extra spice to the contest with the Brit now looking to deliver his punishment in the ring.
"I am going to go in there to hurt his son. It's the sport I'm in. I'm a nice guy outside the ring but, once I put those gloves on, it's a different story," Khan told the Guardian.
"His dad was going all crazy. You could see they're all on edge, a little nervous. This is his biggest fight. When he beat Erik Morales to win the WBC title [in March], he won by maybe two rounds. He can believe he beat a great legend, but Morales is not like he was 10 years ago.
"Garcia has never met anyone as quick as me, as strong as me, or who can hit as hard as me. I will hurt him.
"That confidence comes from the gym. I've been putting sparring partners down with 14oz gloves. These are 147 [lb] 154 guys. When you see their legs go, you know.
"When I hurt guys who are heavier, I know I've got the power. It's not like I'm looking for it. These are from little shots that you don't expect."
Khan has been reinstated as the WBA champion and will be looking to add the WBC title that is currently held by Garcia before a likely move up to welterweight.
