Mikey Garcia Retires At 34 Years Old
Mikey Garcia has retired.
That’s at least according to his Instagram bio, which says, “Retired World Champ 126, 130, 135, 140 lbs.”
The new description comes eight months after his majority decision loss to Sandor Martin in October 2021.
The 34-year-old was once a dominant contender in his respective divisions. He recorded wins over Robert Easter Jr and Adrien Broner – to name a few.
But his stocks seemed to drop after losing to Errol Spence Jr by unanimous decision for Spence’s IBF welterweight title.
He bounced back from the loss with a unanimous decision win against Jessie Vargas in February 2020. But then he dropped the second contest of his pro career to Martin.
But before the losses, Garcia had held multiple world championships in four weight classes.
Those titles included the lineal junior welterweight title from 2018-2020; the WBO featherweight titles in 2013; the WBO junior lightweight title from 2013 to 2014; the WBC and IBF lightweight titles from 2017 to 2019 and the IBF junior welterweight title in 2018.
Garcia, however, has not made an official announcement.
