Mikey Garcia wants to hold a unification bout this year

Майки Гарсия хочет провести объединительный бой в нынешнем году

Mikey Garcia

American boxer shared his plans for the near future.

“I plan to return in the category up to 135 pounds for a fight with Jorge Linares. If it does not work, I want to meet with another champion to unify the titles before the final transition into the category of up to 140 pounds. Then at the end of the year I want to unify the titles and 140 pounds. Perhaps I can unify the titles in two categories within one year.”

While Mikey Garcia recognizes that the fight for the title IBF in the light Welterweight division against Sergei Lipica becomes for him an easy ride.

“I began my career in weight to 126 pounds, now we are talking about the duel in the category of 14 pounds heavier. I will have to defeat a larger fighter, because even if at the weigh-in we will have the same weight, in the day of battle he will probably be bigger than me… he has 10 knockouts in 13 fights, it is also impossible to forget. Hope I’m not missing by doing something stupid error”, – quotes the words of the American combatpress.com

Recall that the fight with Garcia – Lipiec scheduled for 10 February in San Antonio (USA).
