Manny Pacquiao vs Mikey Garcia Confirmed?
Pacquiao has been considering challenging either Mikey Garcia or Danny Garcia. However, sources close to the Filipino legend claim it is going to be Mikey who will end up facing the Pac Man. Mikey Garcia has competed in 40 professional boxing matches and has lost only one of them.
Mikey Garcia’s first and only loss came at his 40th match, where he faced off against Errol Spence Jr. in a rematch and lost. Garcia, after his first-ever loss, would be looking forward to right the wrongs and what better way to cement his legacy than to defeat Manny Pacquiao!
Sean 'Viva' Gibbons on Manny Pacquiao's future plans:"Here in the next month or so, (Pacquiao) will take a look. He'll see what's out there. He'll take a look at Danny Garica, he'll take a look at Mikey Garcia — those are the two front runners." #boxing
