Garcia: Manny Pacquiao Should Fight Sergio Martinez

By Lem Satterfield

Trainer Robert Garcia was in the corner for ex-champion Antonio Margarito during his Nov. 13, unanimous decision loss to eight-division titlist and WBO welterweight (147 pounds) and WBC junior middleweight (154 pounds) champion Manny Pacquiao that was televised on HBO pay per view and promoted by Top Rank Promotions.

A southpaw, Pacqiauo has a May 7 CBS Showtime pay per view televised defense of his WBO belt against three-division, five-time champion, Shane Mosley.

But Garcia believes that Pacquiao needs to prove himself against former southpaw WBC middleweight (160 pounds) king Sergio Martinez, who is coming off of a Nov. 20 second-round knockout of Paul Williams.

“Martinez is the only big figh left for Pacquiao. Martinez is on his prime now and I guess he can challenge Pacquiao,” Garcia told FanHouse.

Garcia also joins the list of boxing experts who believe Mosley is a live dog in his fight against Pacquiao. 

“Pacquiao has the edge when it comes to power-punching and speed, but Mosley has a lot of surprises as an experienced fighter. He must be cautious when he takes on Mosley,” Garcia said.
