Danny Garcia has admitted he is happy to fly under the radar heading into his fight with Amir Khan.

The duo will meet at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas for the WBA and WBC light-welterweight titles, with Khan the overwhelming favourite with the bookmakers.

Khan has called himself a "superstar in the sport" and is extremely bullish about Saturday's bout, but Garcia has an air of confidence about him and feels he can silence the detractors.

"I want to prove to the world that I am world class, that is why I took the fight and is why I am here," he said. "We are going to go in there laying the bombs and see what happens.

"He has the name, more people know him than me, so it is right I am the underdog. But on Saturday night we will see who is the better man.

"I am going in there to have fun, do what I do best which is be swift and win."
