Leonard Garcia: "I'm willing to fight whoever"

Leonard Garcia talks about his impressive win over Jens Pulver, his future plans and more.

Quote:
On his future plans...

"I actually asked to fight in December, but theyíre having some issues with the way things ended up. The champís hurt right now. I believe Iím the #1 contender right now and there are a lot of different options man. Who knows man? Me and one of the top 10 guys might be locking horns here pretty soon, even if itís not for the title."

"We get paid to fight and I think people are going to want to see me fight anybody. Itís not an issue with me of picking opponents or Iím afraid of this guy. Iíll fight anybody they put in front of me and if theyíre willing to make the numbers right, Iím willing to take the fight."

"Iím still hungry as hell man. I want the title, but like I said, Iím willing to fight whoever."

On his performance against Pulver...

"I was going to come out and exchange with him and see how that went and then in the 2nd or 3rd round, if he started to get tired or I started to get tired, just take him down, grind on him and wear him out. It worked out in my favor."

"The thing is, and the thing I want people to understand is, I trained for a 25-minute fight. Iím ready to go at that pace for 25 minutes. I know itís just a 15-minute fight, but I believe in my heart that Iím going to be fighting for that championship pretty soon, so I train to fight for 5 rounds."

"Iíve never hurt somebody and have them come back. I think thatís part of my Hispanic heritage man; that hot blood. I have that killer instinct."

"I had to check his eyes for a second before I jumped on him because he wasnít all the way down."

"I tried to make sure that he didnít have a clear head when I went in for it, but I seen his eyes man and they were rolling pretty good. He was kind of lost and didnít know what was going on."

On Mike Brown's win over Faber...

"To be honest man, you could see it in Urijah that he didnít seem as confident as he normally does. He just didnít look the same to me man. I think he was beat before he went in. Not because he was scared of Mike or anything like that because I donít think heís afraid of anything, but the thing was, Mike Brown is a man. That boy can wrestle and he can box. I think Urijah may have felt outgunned in this fight. He didnít lay down by any means, but he went down pretty quick and pretty early. He really didnít try to do anything."
