By Dan Ambrose: Former WBO featherweight champion Mikey Garcia (32-0, 27 KO’s) had a couple of excuses for why he couldn’t make weight for his fight against Juan Manuel Lopez. Garcia started out by saying he was sick for a number of days, and then he later mentioned that his diet wasn’t good for the fight.
Mikey said he would be moving up in weight to super featherweight on a trial basis, but I think he’s kidding himself. It’s time for Mikey to move up to lightweight . If he’s struggling this bad to make 126, then it’s clearly time for him to make the move to skip super featherweight and go straight to lightweight.
