WBC, IBF lightweight champion Mikey Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs) is still very much focused on jumping two weight divisions, to 147-pounds, for a potential showdown with IBF welterweight king Errol Spence.
Garcia captured world titles at featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight and junior welterweight.
He picked up the IBF's title earlier this year with a twelve round decision over Sergey Lipinets, and then moved back down to 135-pounds to dominate Robert Easter on route to a unification win to join the WBC, IBF belts.
Garcia has several directions in his path.
He could wait out for the winner of the WBA, WBO unification between Vasyl Lomachenko and Jose Pedraza, which takes place in December. There is a possible mandatory fight with Richard Commey, and several other options are out there at 135 and 140pounds.
But the main goal for Garcia, is a fifth divisional title and to overthrow the most feared fighter in the weight class.
“My main target, focus and No. 1 goal right now is getting a fight with Errol Spence,” said Garcia, 30, said to Premier Boxing Champions.
“If Errol for some reason is unavailable, then I’ll see what options are available. But I’m still focused solely on getting an Errol Spence fight. Nothing else excites me other than that one, so we’re working on that.”
A fight with Spence is the easiest to make, because they both fight on Showtime and work with powerful adviser Al Haymon.
Spence has seen action twice in 2018 and he wants to defend his title for a third time before the year is out. He started off the year with a stoppage victory over Lamont Peterstion and then months later he blew away mandatory challenger Carlos Ocampo in a single round.
Spence and Garcia would like to fight each other in December, but that is likely not going to happen.
