Comments Thread For: Post-Fight Report Card: Mikey Garcia Breaks On Through
Navigating the minefield from pro debut to first major title for a blue chip talent isnít easy. On Saturday night, the expert handling of Mikey Garcia culminated with a four-knockdown WBO title victory.
The future might just be here at Featherweight. Garcia, only 25, is clearly the leader of the pack among young Featherweights in class. Only Indonesiaís Chris John can make any sort of argument in this moment as being the class leader period.
It was everything one could ask for in a breakthrough win short of a satisfying ending.
Oh, that ending.
Letís go the report card. [Click Here To Read More]

I would like to see a Garcia-Salido rematch. Who can be satisfied with a fight being stopped because of a broken nose? Salido appeared to be coming on stronger in the later rounds, so who knows what would have happened in the 11th or 12th?

Good call on Mikey's lack of an inside game. I noticed that too and was a little bit surprised.
Maybe it was just done in order not to play into Salido's strengths but maybe it is something that he is lacking and needs to work on.
If he wants to be a complete fighter.
