Mikey Garcia “Timing Beats Speed” – This past Saturday night on Showtime Boxing, Mikey Garcia faced off against Adrien Broner in a super lightweight bout delivered by the Premier Boxing Champions.
Garcia has won world titles at featherweight, super featherweight and lightweight and this bout at 140 pounds was his first in the super lightweight division. In January of this year Garcia added the WBC lightweight title to his resume with a third round stoppage over previously unbeaten Dejan Zlaticanin. Garcia is now a perfect 37-0 in his career and this past Saturday’s win sees him enter the top pound for pound discussions once again. In January of 2014 Garcia defeated Juan Carlos Burgos to retain his WBO world super featherweight title and he then took more than two years away from the sport. Last Saturday night, it looked like Garcia had not missed a day.
