Mikey Garcia Wants To Be Best Of This Generation
Mikey Garcia knows and more importantly doesn’t care that he is the underdog walking into his March 16th fight with Errol Spence Jr. at AT&T Stadium.
The lightweight world champion moves up two weight classes to battle Spence and take his IBF welterweight title on Pay-Per-View, and is confident he can beat the odds in Arlington.
“You know, I’m looking for the biggest challenge available, the biggest names, the biggest fights,” Garcia told Tha Boxing Voice for an interview posted Monday to its YouTube page. “There’s no one else out there that can motivate me enough and challenge me enough, like Errol Spence. And that’s why we’re going after Errol Spence. I wanna prove to everybody that I’m the best in the generation. And if I don’t get those kind of fights, then I won’t get recognized. That’s why I went after Errol Spence.
“That’s why I made sure I did everything to secure that fight, and I’m happy that we were able to work that fight. It was actually a pretty easy negotiation. I do thank his team and himself for accepting the challenge. I am challenging him. You know, he is the champion, undefeated champion, and he could’ve taken other fights as well. He could’ve taken other fights, but, you know, this fight makes sense for both of us. And that’s why I’m here.”
