Mikey Garcia confident he can give Manny Pacquiao problems inside the ring

Four-division world champion Mikey Garcia is confident that he can give Filipino boxing star and eight-division world champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao problems inside the ring, if they do get matched up.  Garcia has long been a name linked to Pacquiao as a possible opponent, and while the American top contender understands the magnitude of a possible Pacquiao versus Terence Crawford bout, he still would like to have the opportunity to share the ring with Pinoy boxing icon.  Garcia is coming off a decision win over former world champion Jessie Vargas, bouncing back from his first and only career loss to IBF Welterweight World Champion Errol Spence Jr. back in March of 2019.  The 32-year old sees a potential Pacquiao bout as a better matchup for him, given physical differences compared to Spence.  "He doesn’t have the height and reach advantage like Errol, so I think that makes it a better fight for me,” Garcia told Fox Sports (via BoxingScene.com). “I know he’s going to engage and I know he’s going to fight hard. He’s a great fighter. He's a living legend, and I would love to add that to my resume.” Much like most fighters today, Garcia sees facing the legendary Pacquiao as a way to boost their legacy, apart from the challenge of course.  “Fighting the great Manny Pacquiao would be tremendous for my legacy," said Garcia.  At 41 years old, it’s hard to claim that Pacquiao is still in his peak, but what he did prove was that he was still one of the best in the world, as evidenced by his performances against Adrien Broner and Keith Thurman in 2019.  Those two wins, especially the one against Thurman, has made Pacquiao a coveted bout for the welterweight division’s best.  Garcia, who’s undoubtedly one of the division’s top contenders, believes that he can defeat Pacquiao, who’s the reigning WBA (Super) Welterweight World Champion.  "If I'm capable of securing a victory over him and that definitely adds to what I want to accomplish with my legacy and those big triumphs. I’m excited if we can get that fight, that would be the best fight,” Garcia stated.  “I know there are other opportunities for him, there's other options that you mentioned like Keith Thurman, maybe Errol Spence or Danny Garcia. I'm sure all of these are big fights for Manny, but I would love the opportunity as well. It's a great fight, the fanbase would love that. I have a lot of fans and he’s obviously the biggest draw,” Garcia added.  While Pacquiao is among those seriously being discussed for Crawford’s return later this year, a bout against Garcia still isn’t out of the realm of possibility, and Garcia says that if he does get the fight, he won’t squander the opportunity to do something big.  "So I think it would be a great fight. If I get that, I’m definitely taking care of business and I'm not gonna let this pass me by. I hope we secure that and look forward to it,” Garcia said, even comparing himself to a former Pacquiao rival in Juan Manuel Marquez. “I can fight really well. I feel that my boxing style can complicate things a lot for him similar to the way Marquez complicated things for Manny in all those fights." .....»»

Manny Pacquiao among possible opponents for Terence Crawford s return to action later this year

Could Manny Pacquiao versus Terence Crawford happen later this year?  It’s a possible scenario, according to Top Rank Boxing head honcho Bob Arum.  The former long-time Pacquiao promoter says he expects Crawford, the reigning WBO Welterweight World Champion to return to action by late-2020 and the Filipino eight-division champion is on the top of the list of possible opponents.  "We're going to have Terence fight in September, or October, period," Arum said in an interview with ESPN’s Steve Kim.  Apart from Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO) however, Arum says other options include the likes of Kell Brook, Yordenis Ugas, or Shawn Porter.  "We're looking to either match him with Pacquiao, Kell Brook, Ugas or Porter." Arum has been discussing the Pacquiao-Crawford matchup a lot as of late, even bringing up the possibility of the fight taking place in the Middle East.  The problem now however, is that the current COVID-19 pandemic has made it hard for venues to commit to major sporting events.  "We're hamstrung because none of these [venues] want to commit to a fight this year because of the coronavirus,” said Arum.  England’s Brook, (39-2, 27 KO) also poses an intriguing matchup for Crawford. The 34-year old is a former IBF Welterweight World Champion. Brook’s only losses have been at the hands of current IBF Welterweight king Errol Spence Jr. and against middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.  The only problem with Brook, Arum says, is being able to fly the Englishman to the US. "And Kell Brook, if we made [that fight], we couldn't get him here." Porter (30-3-1, 17 KO) is a two-time welterweight world champion, having held the IBF and the WBC titles in his career. Porter’s only losses have come against Spence Jr., Brook, and Keith Thurman.  Ugas (25-4, 12 KO) has won ten of his last eleven bouts, with the only loss coming against Porter in a WBC world title bout. He’s coming off back-to-back wins against Omar Figueroa Jr. and Mike Dallas Jr. .....»»
