Mikey Garcia Signs One-Fight DAZN Deal, Returns Feb. 29

Mikey Garcia’s return to the ring is nearly set for February 29 and it will take place on DAZN, as the former four-division world champion has agreed to a one-fight with deal with Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn and the streaming service.

The Athletic‘s Mike Coppinger was the first to report the deal. An announcement from Hearn and DAZN is expected soon.

Garcia has been making his way around weight divisions between 2013 and 2018, winning championships at featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight and super lightweight.

He was last in action in March, losing to Errol Spence Jr. in a pay-per-view IBF welterweight title fight. It was the first loss Garcia has suffered in 40 fights as a pro.

According to Coppinger, Hearn and DAZN have been aggressive in getting after Garcia because of his drawing power. His fight with Spence broke the 300,000-buy mark.

No opponent has been made official as of yet, but the anticipation is it will be former WBO and WBA (Regular) welterweight champion Jessie Vargas.
