Mikey Garcia spoke about the desire to fight in the Welterweight division.

The world champion in easy weight under version WBC Mikey Garcia said that he wants to rise to another division to meet IBF champion Errol Spence. The was American believes Spence more dangerous opponent than Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko.

“I’m very serious about it. I know that many people do not take my intentions seriously. People think I’m just talking, and I think it’s too big for me. Spence is a dangerous fighter. It’s much bigger than me. But that’s why I want to conduct this fight.

I always throw yourself challenges. Spence is the biggest challenge for me right now. I think the fight with him is more dangerous than a meeting with Lomachenko. Moreover, a unification fight with Vasyl is out of range.

That’s why I want the fight against Spence. Want my name to be strengthened in the list of the best boxers of this generation.

Brother and father against this fight. They say I’m too small to fight with the champion of the Welterweight division. They discouraged me from this idea, but I want to fight against Spence. If I beat him, no one can deny that I am the best”, – quotes Garcia ESPN.

Note, the next fight Mikey Garcia will play against Robert Easter on July 28.

Earlier it was reported that the coach Lomachenko commented on the possibility of the battle Lomachenko – Garcia.
