Mikey Garcia looking to be in action by year’s end

One fighter that has been luring the eye of several boxing promotions is four-division world champion, Mikey Garcia.

While Garcia (39-1, 30 KOs) is enjoying his free-agent status, the main thing to keep an eye out for is what weight class he’ll compete at. The reports of him signing back to Top Rank Boxing was reported with the caveat he returns to the lightweight division at 140 lbs. One that Garcia vacated earlier in the year to take on Errol Spence to a unanimous decision defeat back in March. He was under the Top Rank banner from 2006 to leaving in a contract dispute in 2016.

Another report that has floated around is he is pondering an offer to sign with Matchroom Boxing that his brother and trainer Robert Garcia hinted at earlier in the month.

Garcia, in a recent interview with ESPN Deportes, was still unclear on what his next plans were going to be.

“We haven’t decided what we’re going to do, but what I’d like to do is make a fight before the end of the year and then look for a big fight, as with Manny Pacquiao,” Garcia said speaking with ESPN Deportes. “I think that would be my goal, but there are many plans, interesting things to come, the defeat with Spence did not close the doors for me at all.”

The plans for Garcia is whoever he signs with next is not going to be holding him down in multiple fight deals.

“In the next few days we will say, we know that good things are coming, personally I would not like a contract of many fights, but to keep myself as a free agent,” Garcia told ESPN Deportes. “It has worked so far, I feel good, but let’s see, there are options on the table, and we will soon decide.”

Garcia may have to get in line with the rest of the boxing world in terms of Paciquao, but whatever promotion Garcia signs next with will at least get him one step closer.
