Still less than two months removed from the biggest victory of his career and WBO featherweight champion Mikey Garcia already seems to be eager for another big fight.
On January 19th in New York, Garcia was scintillating as he dropped then champion Orlando Salido four times on his way towards a technical decision victory after eight heats. The fight went to the scorecards early, as a ringside physician deemed that a broken nose from Garcia courtesy of an accidental head butt from Salido left him in no shape to continue.
I caught up with Garcia recently to discuss some action taking place near his weight class, including his thoughts on matches with Juan Manuel Lopez and Yuriorkis Gamboa in particular.
