Here is Potshot Boxing’s (PSB) Prediction for the upcoming Danny Garcia vs. Rod Salka fight!!
On August 9, 2014, Danny “Swift” Garcia will be stepping back into the ring at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York against a fighter that is unknown to the boxing world in “Lightning” Rod Salka. Garcia’s junior welterweight titles will not be on the line in this fight. The main reason is because Rod Salka is not even ranked by the WBA and WBC. In order to get a shot at the champion you have to be at least ranked in the top 15 by the boxing commissions.

The last time Garcia was in the ring, many boxing fans felt he got a hometown decision against Mauricio Herrera. Now Garcia is back and a lot of the boxing world is not happy with this fight against a supposedly overmatched Salka so Garcia will need to put on a flawless performance on Saturday or his boxing career can take a serious down sparrow if he loses against Salka.
So what do we know about “Lightning” Rod Salka? Well, from watching some tape on him, he can box, he has a good jab, he moves well around the ring, got some quickness, but he only has 3 knockouts in his professional boxing career so he will not be a real threat to knock out Garcia. I expect for Garcia to take control of this fight early by moving forward behind his jab and forcing Salka to use his good defense to try and stave off Garcia’s boxing aggression.
Yes, Salka also has good defense and he will use it this Saturday night to try and pull off the biggest upset of this year.
Garcia knows that the pressure is on him to win this fight easy so I expect for him to use his aggression to overwhelm the supposedly overmatched Salka en route to setting up a vicious knockout of Salka. Eventhough Salka is unranked, he has good technical boxing skills and he will not be coming to the Barclays Center to lose on Saturday night.
This fight will boil down to whether or not Garcia can get past the good boxing of Salka and score an expected knock out. I say the answer is Yes!!
Prediction: Danny Garcia by Knockout
