Both camps participated in a media workout from New York, earlier today. Here are the highlights.
Garcia camp is talking about fighting Pacquiao – your thoughts?
Burgos: I know they are talking about him, but it is not a reality. He is not there yet. Pacquiao? Gamboa? He is not there yet. He has a long way to go.
Would you be interested in Gamboa and Pacquiao if you get by Garcia on Saturday night?
Burgos: I would like to face them, but I am a realist and I have a long way to go. I am still maturing as a fighter. I am still a young fighter and I have a lot to learn.
You got a draw in your last fight. Do you feel you need a knockout to win?
Burgos:I am not going to go for a knockout, but the knockout may come. I am well prepared and I am in the best condition of my life so I will just go in the right and fight my fight.
