title Assessing Mikey Garcia’s Options

By Andy record: Since stopping Elio Rojas on his return in July 2016, Mikey Garcia has been one of the most watched, and most talked about fighters in the business today. He captured the WBC belt at 135lbs by brutally knocking out a dangerous fighter in Dejan Zlaticanin, and moved up to easily outpoint an unwilling, or maybe outclassed, Adrien Broner, a former four division titlist. After dropping and ultimately defeating Sergey Lipinets this weekend Garcia walked away with the formers International Boxing Federation Junior Welterweight (or Super Lightweight, if you please) title, and in the process joined the prestigious and rare club of four weight World Champions.

By Tim Royner: Scott Quigg (34-2-2, 25 KOs) says the biggest mistake he made last Saturday night against WBO World featherweight champion Oscar Valdez (24-0, 19 KOs) was not cutting the ring off enough to get to him and force him to fight in the middle rounds of their fight at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

title Mikey Garcia rules out Lomachenko fight

By Dan Ambrose: Mikey Garcia (38-0, 30 KOs) won his fourth division world title last Saturday night in beating IBF light welterweight champion Sergey Lipinets (13-1, 10 KOs) on Showtime in a fight that could have easily gone the other way at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio. Mikey won by the scores 116-111, 117-110 and 117-110. Unfortunately, Mikey took a real battering at the hands of the hard-hitting 28-year-old Belarusian Lipinets. The decision should have gone to Lipinets. He was the better fighter last night. Mikey looked like a guy that had lost a step and was fighting outside of his normal weight class.
