Former four division world champion Mikey Garcia wants to face future boxing hall of famer Manny Pacquiao in 2021. The former featherweight, super-feather weight, lightweight and super-lightweight champion, discusses recent rumors of Pacquiao fighting Conor McGregor and Ryan Garcia, and calls on the Filipino to face a real fighter and a real challenger, himself.
‘I love love to fight Manny, we were close to getting that last year. However, with Covid, the pandemic and everything shutting down, we were not able to make that happen last year and then this year, we heard of other fight, Conor (McGregor), Ryan (Garcia), a few other fights like that. I don’t know what his plan is’ Mikey told Fighthype
‘If Manny decides to take on something like that, so be it, I’ll move on. I’m not going to sit around and wait and wait, and then I’ll look for something else. But if Manny is available and he wants to get in the ring with a real fighter, and have a real challenge and a real fight for the fans, then I’m it’
‘There’s no one else that is accomplished enough to be in that spotlight to be that position like I have’ said Garcia
