“There’s a lot at stake. I’m trying to accomplish a big task, overcoming the size, jumping weight classes like I have been. Those are big challenges. My training had to change.”Mikey Garcia
After winning titles in four different weight classes, Garcia wants to make history and win his fifth at 147 lbs. Standing in his way is Errol Spence Jr. who is already considered a big welterweight for his size. Errol “The Truth” Spence is also undefeated, with multiple KO’s and TKO’s in his last 11 fights.
While Garcia won’t be the first boxer to roll the dice and put his undefeated image on the line for such a tough test. It’s a boxing rarity but most recently Manny Pacquiao emerged as a modern day division destroyer, claiming titles in eight weight classes. The one distinct difference between Garcia and PacMan, is that Garcia doesn’t come with the same offensive output as the PacMan.
