“I feel strong,” Garcia said.
“If there’s an opportunity to come down to 135-pounds for a good fight, I’ll do that. If that’s not available, we know boxing. I can’t be waiting or sitting around or chasing anybody. I’ll move on with my career at 140-pounds or 147-pounds.
“Two and a half years off. There were a lot of questions. People wondered if my heart was still in it or if I would come back like before or if I’d be motivated enough. It’s nice to come back and show everybody that my heart’s in it. I’m hungrier than ever and I’m probably better than every. We can see the results. "Anybody that wants to come join us on Showtime, give us a call. We are ready for anybody."
