Three-division world champion Mikey Garcia is going up to 140 to challenge Adrien Broner on July 29 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. For Garcia, this is an opportunity to show the world that he is one of the best fighters in the sport. Garcia and Broner completed a two-day media tour, which started in New York City on Monday, and ended in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Garcia is very excited for this opportunity against Broner:
“I’m very happy to be here and get back in the ring. This is the kind of fight that I deserve and the kind of fight that will please the fans,” said Garcia. “Everybody already knows what kind of fighter Adrien Broner is. He’s a champion for a reason. The skills and talent are there. I’m undefeated and you can’t deny my skills either. That’s going to make this a great fight. This is really two of the best fighters matching up against each other. This is what boxing is all about. That’s what I want to give the fans. I’m not taking on any easy opponents, I’m here to challenge and be in big fights.”
According to Garcia, this could be the best fight in 2017:
“I want the fans to be able to appreciate the sport of boxing. These are the kind of fights that fans will remember for years. This could be the Fight of the Year. We’re very even when it comes to our accolades and achievements,” explained Garcia.
The 29-year-old Garcia thinks this fight will be talked about for a long time:
“This has all the ingredients of a great fight. On July 29 Barclays Center is going to be the place to be at. If you can’t make it, make sure you watch on SHOWTIME. Don’t miss it. People are going to be talking about it for years to come.”
Expect a lot of fireworks on July 29!
