Amir Khan has spoken of his excitement at returning to the ring in the world title fight with Danny Garcia, putting behind him the recent troubles with Lamont Peterson.
Ringside caught up with the Bolton fighter as he intensified his preparations for the clash with the WBC light-welterweight champion in Las Vegas on July 14.
And he was in focused mood after his re-match with Peterson - who he lost to controversially in December - was called off with his opponent having tested positive for synthetic testosterone.
"Every fighter is a threat and I never take any fighter lightly but Garcia is a threatening opponent," Khan told Ringside. "He has never tasted defeat before so he is going to be confident.
"I was really upset that Lamont Peterson failed his test because I really wanted to prove to everyone that I am the better fighter and go in there and knock him out."
Garcia, an American of Puerto Rican descent, is undefeated in 23 fights with 14 coming by knock-out and insists he is ready to take on Khan.
"It's a dream come true, I have to beat a legend for the title," he said. "This is what I have been waiting for my entire life. He's already been a champion before and he's had his time, and eventually he has got to pass the torch.
"I am the type of fighter that could hit you with one punch and end the night. I am strong and ready to go."
Garcia's confidence can be traced back to his trainer, and dad, Angel who had plenty to say - and clearly riled Khan - during the press conference for the fight.
"The day Danny was born I knew there was something special about him," he said. "Danny is meant to be here. He is gifted. A lot of people don't see it - I don't know why - but he is going to get through."
However Khan's trainer, Freddie Roach, is in no doubt who the better boxer is, saying: "I think one guy is the superior fighter and one guy is not. And my guy is."
Victory over Garcia would take Khan a step close to what he sees as an inevitable fight with Floyd Mayweather, who is currently serving a jail term.
"The Mayweather fight is a fight in the future that will happen and I know I have the skills to beat him," he said.
But for now Khan is focused on defeating Garcia and getting his career back on track, adding: "I can't wait to get in there and put on a great performance and win those titles and bring them back to Britain."
