Mikey Garcia Planning To Move Up To Lightweight

By Salvador Rodriguez

WBO super featherweight champion Mikey Garcia (34-0, 28KOs) is planning to move up in weight to the lightweight division. Garcia is still involved in a legal tussle with promotional firm Top Rank. Garcia claims that his promotional contract expired and Top Rank believes they still have him under contract.

Garcia last fought on January 25th in New York City, when he won a twelve round unanimous decision over challenger Juan Carlos Burgos.
 
"I have no date yet. I'm like everyone else, waiting for a date and an opponent, [waiting] to see what Top Rank says. Right now there has been nothing," Garcia siad.

"I was waiting for a unification with Takashi Miura (WBC) or Takashi Uchiyama (WBA), but there was nothing [from Top Rank], so I'm going to look for more challenges at 135-pounds."

[QUOTE=TheUglyness;14836344]I've known of him since early last year when he fought Prescott and have watched some earlier fights of him since then. I don't think anyone really thinks of him as a huge puncher. I'm not neglecting that at all.…
