Mickey Garcia would love the idea of facing WBO Super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko but he doubts that Lomachenko will move up to 135 pounds to face him.
“Listen, I think that would be a great matchup, based on styles, I hear he is willing to fight me and has mentioned that he wants to fight me. His manager reached out to my brother , asking, you know, maybe we can build that fight up. ” Garcia said during a post-fight press conference.
“But I don’t see him making the move up to 135. You know, he’s fighting a guy at 130 who’s coming from a loss at 126. You know? That doesn’t show me he wants to move to 135. If you’re serious about it, like I said, they can come, you know, give us a phone call. You know, we can bring him on to Showtime. You know? We can definitely have a discussion. I think it would be a great matchup at 135. I ain’t coming down to nobody. I’m not gonna wait for anybody, either.”
WBC Lightweight champion Mickey Garcia (37-0,30) is coming off decisive 12 round unanimous decision win over Adrien Broner in his 140 pounds pro debut while Vasyl Lomachenko (8-1,6) will be defending his WBO world super featherweight title against Miguel Marriaga (25-2,21) on August 5th at Microsoft Theater in LA California.
