Mikey Garcia: I Wouldn't Be Surprised if Angulo Hurts Him

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - WBO super featherweight champion Mikey Garcia will be ringside later tonight, when Alfredo "Perro" Angulo battles for WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in a Showtime Pay-Per-View headliner. Garcia is on the fence regarding which fighter will pull it out at the end, but he anticipates some rocky moments for Canelo.

I can't really pick either guy, but it's going to be an exciting fight," Garcia told
