WBO featherweight champion Miguel Angel "Mikey" Garcia is on the short-list of targets for former two-division champion Juan Manuel Lopez. The Puerto Rican boxer's manager says the Garcia fight interests them a lot, but not at 126. Juanma would like to get Garcia in the ring at catch-weight of 128-pounds, which Garcia told BoxingScene.com he would be interested in entertaining.

"[Garcia] is certainly one of those who we would be consider [fighting this year], for sure," said manager Orlando Pineiro to Carlos Gonzalez. "Everything would be subject to what the Top Rank executives might have. Depend on the promoters. It would have to be [at 128]. Right now Juanma is looking to fight at [130] again but there is still no definite date [for his next fight]."

Garcia has the potential to end this fight early. A top level boxer/mover automatically is a problem for Lopez, who IMO is average without being able to land his right hook with any regularity. Garcia can move, on top of having the capability to land big counter power shots in the process. Salido...

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC]JuanMa was considered P4P at one point. He may not be as good as we once thought, but he's still an entertaining fighter with excellent power. I'd love to see Lopez fight Garcia. You have to favor Mikey, of course, but it would be a good fight.[/QUOTE] Yea he was almost up t...
