Juanma Lopez Hoping To Get a Crack at Mikey Garcia

By Jhonny Gonzalez

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.

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;13105945]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,…
