Danny Garcia: Mikey Can’t Get Past Errol’s Size
Danny Garcia respects Mikey Garcia’s game, but the Philadelphia native doesn’t think Garcia’s skills can help him surpass Errol Spence Jr for Spence’s IBF welterweight title.
“Mikey’s a good fighter,” Danny Garcia told BoxingScene.com. “He’s a good fighter. He’s a real technical fighter. He has good speed, good timing, good power. I just feel like – I don’t know what he thinks. I don’t know how he his mentally, but I just feel like it’s not a good fight for him.”
While Garcia believes the best option for the California native is a showdown with Vasyl Lomachenko to unify their lightweight titles, he’s giving Mikey a pass because of the payday he has coming.
While Mikey Garcia is going to train at the Scientific Nutrition for Advanced Conditioning facility ran by Victor Conte, Danny Garcia doesn’t think that will help him against a natural welterweight such as Spence.
“He’s a good fighter,” Danny Garcia said. “He’s undefeated. It can be a great fight. I just think Spence is way too big for him. Spence is probably the biggest welterweight.”
