Robert Garcia, older brother and trainer of WBO super featherweight champion Mikey Garcia, says his brother would not make a leap of two divisions just to face Manny Pacquiao, currently the WBO welterweight champion.

Before Mikey became entangled in a legal dispute with his promoter, Top Rank - the CEO of Top Rank, Bob Arum, mentioned the possibility of a fight between Mikey and Pacquiao in the near future.

Mikey is likely going to 135 next and then intends to have a few fights at the weight, followed by a move to 140. Robert says the fight with Pacquiao is possible, but not for at least another 1 to 2 years.

"Mikey is champ at 130 right now and more likely he’s not gonna defend that title because he’s gonna move up to 135. Pacquiao fights at welterweight, so that’s probably something that we won’t see in the next year or so because Mikey is not gonna move up to welterweight just to fight Pacquiao," Garcia told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"That would be skipping two divisions and going to welterweight, that’s something Mikey will not do. He has to fight at 135 first and a couple of fights at 140, so we’re talking about at least a year or a year and a half. We’re not even thinking about Pacquiao right now."

[QUOTE=Inkanyamba]Damn no one even cares about this Mikey kid huh? He needs to get his ass back in the ring and make weight and not quit when the going gets tough.[/QUOTE] I'm getting to that point... Mikey who?

Would love to see Uchiyama-Garcia to see who the best is at 130

I'm a big MIkey fan so I hope he doesn't get in a situation where he sits out so long that he is forced into a fight like this. Handle your business than get back in the ring. Fight Crawford and see what you can do at 135 before going up.

This fight has no reason to ever happen..

That'll change once Bob Arum reads that and calls a meeting that he needs Mikey to make the move. Or else... Pacquiao-Rios II "Redemption"
