Next REAL TALK to feature Mikey Garcia
Reigning RING featherweight champ Mikey Garcia will be the guest of the next REAL TALK video feature. Fans of the undefeated Oxnard, Calif. native can ask him questions about his Nov. 9 challenge to Puerto Rico’s WBO 130-pound titleholder Rocky Martinez.
Garcia (32-0, 27 knockouts), the younger brother Trainer of the Year Robert Garcia, won THE RING and WBO featherweight titles with a one-sided technical decision over Orlando Salido in January. He lost the WBO belt on the scales prior to his fourth-round stoppage of Juan Manuel Lopez in June.
Garcia, who is only 25, is looking to establish himself in a new weight class, junior lightweight, but he has to go through the gutsy, hard-punching Martinez (27-1-2, 16 KOs) to do it. The fight will be televised on HBO.
