Mikey Garcia: Juanma Still Has a Future, Can Win a Belt

By Miguel Rivera

Undefeated Mikey Garcia (32-0, 27KOs) believes Juan Manuel Lopez (33-3, 30KOs) is still capable of doing big things in the sport of boxing. Although he's a few weeks away from turning 30, Lopez looked like a shot fighter on Saturday night in Dallas - as Garcia easily finished him off in four one-sided rounds. It was far from the Lopez most remember a few years ago, when he was regarded as one of the best fighters in the sport. The loss to Garcia was Lopez's third TKO defeat in his last six fights.

"I think he (Juanma) still has a future, but maybe in another division or in the same division but with another champion. This was not his night, I was very fast, very strong. But I think maybe he can give a good fight to another champions or perhaps win the title from another current champion. He tried to get in and make it a tougher fight. But I did not let him. My strategy was to fight from the outside, not to exchange blows inside. He is a good fighter and I think he can still do great things in this division or at 130," Garcia told Jose Sanchez.
