Garcia’s move up to 140 lbs, coupled with his new trainer Derrick James, could immediately pay off if the fight were to materialize.
Following Garcia’s loss to Gervonta Davis, there was a fear that he could be a long way away from fighting for a world title. But in Romero he could be given an unexpected opportunity.
The latter acquired the belt following his own loss to Davis when he won a controversial ninth-round knockout against Ismael Barroso after the referee’s decision to wave off the fight was slammed.
