Mikey Garcia (39-1, 30 KOs) wants another title shot despite losing his last fight against Errol Spence Jr. Mikey just wants the title shot at 147 against the 40-year-old Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs).
Pacquiao is defeated the unbeaten WBA Super welterweight champion Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman last July. It was a huge win for Pacquiao that rejuvenated his career and now he is the WBA Super champion in welterweight.
Garcia lost his last fight to Spence by a one-sided decision by the scores 120-107, 120-108, 120-108. Those are very lopsided scores. The fight wasn’t remotely competitive, Mikey was too small and weak for Spence. Now Mikey wants another title shot. Mikey was a good fighter in the lower weight classes, but he looked poor in moving up to 147.
“I’ve had some offers for some fights, but I’m waiting to see if I can get something bigger,” said Mikey Garcia about his next fight. “I want to take on some big challenges. So if I can land something big, possibly a Manny [Pacquiao] fight early next year, that’s what I would really push for, but we got to wait to see if he’s available. If not him, I’ll take on somebody else. Bu I will be back for big fights. That’s what I want to give everybody. Good night to remember fighting the best, and I really look forward to it. Big things are coming. I appreciate everyone waiting patiently, but we will be back,” said Garcia.
