About Danny Garcia
It has recently been reported that Danny Garcia net worth amounts to $1 million. True, he is not the wealthiest athlete around, but we must admit that this is an impressive fortune for a 27-year-old. He earned it for the numerous victories against some of the greatest boxers in the world, such as Morales, Khan, Judah and Matthysse. As for the day, this 5 ft tall boxer has been in 31 fight and won all of them! Knowing this, it is not surprising that in 2013 Philadelphia Sports Writers Association named him Philadelphia Pro Athlete of the Year. Just as important are the facts that he is the reigning WBA (Super) and former WBC champion in the light welterweight division. Now let’s take a closer look at his early life and career.
Both of his parents originated from Puerto Rico: his mother was from Bayamón, while his father, Ángel García, was originally from Naguabo. Plus, the future millionaire grew up in the city with the second largest Puerto Rican population in the United States. Hence, Danny has always remained close to his ethnic heritage. He always admired a boxer Carlos Ortiz and wanted to be just like him – the next great Puerto Rican fighter. The current Danny Garcia net worth proves that he has managed to achieve this goal.
Now who was that person who encouraged Danny to choose professional boxing? It was his father Angelo Garcia, not only one of the most important people in Danny’s career, but in his life in general. Angelo was a boxer and he wanted his son to follow in his footsteps. Hence when the boy turned ten (that was the lower age limit for kids to start legally training), the father took him to Philadelphia’s Harrowgate Boxing Club. Not only Angelo encouraged his son to take this career path, he has also ushered him all the way through it: to this day he is one of the main coaches for Danny. Thus it is safe to say, that if it was not for the encouragement and support from his father, Danny Garcia net worth would not be as high as it is today.
Danny Garcia net worth started to grow in 2005, when he became 2005 Under-19 national champion and 2005 Tammer Tournament champion. The following year he was announced U.S. national champion and in 2007 Danny finally made his professional debut. Speaking about the more recent events in his career, Danny has won against Mauricio Herrera and Lamont Peterson. His latest fights were aired in prime time on network television and the star was really excited about that: “I think this is great to broaden the sport of boxing on NBC. I’m just very excited, and I can’t wait to go in there April 11 and give the fans another great show” – he said.
