BOXER Danny Garcia says he already has the advantage over Jose Benavidez – thanks to his eleven toes.

The American is days away from his huge middleweight clash after a 19 month break.


The 34-year-old is making his debut at this weight division in Brooklyn – and is hoping his extra toe could give him the edge.

He showed off his additional body part in a 2015 video and spoke about it again in the days leading up to this fight.

Garcia told TMZ: "I'm gonna keep showing it off because when I was a kid, I was ashamed of it.

"Now, I'm somebody. That six-toe brought me a long way."

"I already got the advantage. I got an extra body part. He's gonna need an extra arm to beat me."

He adds of his preparation for the fight: "It was tough in the beginning but the way I've been sparring, the way I've been training, the way I've been running … everything is stronger and faster."

Garcia has not fought since December 2020 when he lost in a unanimous points decision to Errol Spence Jr.

Spence had only 14 months earlier been involved in a high-speed car crash near Dallas.

It left Garcia's record at 36 wins and 3 losses, with one of his most memorable victories coming when he knocked out Brit boxer Amir Khan in 2012.

His opponent Benavidez meanwhile boasts 27 wins, a single loss and a single draw in his career.

The 30-year-old is looking to pull off an upset at the Barclays Centre in New York on Saturday.

He is the older brother of former two-time super middleweight champion David Benavidez and is looking to bounce back after an underwhelming draw against Francisco Torres.

That clash in November 2021 was his first bout in over three years.
