Mikey Garcia Feels Crawford Will Have Too Much For Jeff Horn

Mikey Garcia will have a keen eye on Saturday's World Title fight featuring Terence Crawford.

Garcia currently holds the WBC World Lightweight Title but has discussed moving through the weights, so he could be a future opponent for Crawford.

Last summer, Garcia beat Adrien Broner at 140 pounds, then won the IBF crown against Sergey Lipinets in February.

However, the Mexican-American vacated that belt shortly after and now looks set to unify back down at Lightweight with Robert Easter Jr.

Crawford aims to become a three-weight World Champion against Jeff Horn on June 9th, and Garcia is backing 'Bud' to do the business.

"He's gonna beat Jeff Horn. I think Jeff Horn puts [up] a good fight, but I think Crawford beats him. Crawford is more talented than Jeff Horn," the 30-year-old told ESNEWS.

Horn is a big underdog with the bookmakers, but he has upset the odds before - famously beating Manny Pacquiao in Australia last year.

According to Garcia, he'll have to replicate the tactics he applied in Brisbane: "He has a chance. If he can keep relentless pressure on Crawford and just smother him. Kind of like what he did to Pacquiao.

"Give him no space so Crawford doesn't have space to move around and box and use his height and reach. He could, but I actually don't see it. I think Crawford beats him. He's got much more skills," he added.

Mikey knows, hence why he will never fight Crawford.

Crawford is going to punish dude for running his mouth. Instead of stretching it over 12, he'll prove a point in this match.....a brutal beating, over before 10 rds.
