Mikey Garcia’s HUGE upcoming fight with Errol Spence will be way better than Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather’s 2015 fight … and Garcia is telling us why.
Little background first … Manny and Floyd had been dancing around each other for years, with fans clamoring for the two men to get in the ring and make the biggest fight in the sport.
The results in the ring were kinda meh … and when we talked to Garcia in L.A. at an event for Premier Boxing and FOX Sports he said his long-awaited face off with Errol Spence won’t let fans down.
“I didn’t want to wait ’til the end of our careers. I’m doing it in our primes. Mayweather and Pacquiao should’ve fought 6 years before it happened. I’m fighting a guy at his prime. He’s fighting in my prime. That’s the kinda fight we wanna give the fans.”
Both men are undefeated champs — with 51 KO’s between them — so many people in the boxing world say the fight is gonna be an all-time great bout when it sparks off March 16 at Jerry’s World in Dallas.
BTW — Floyd and Manny are talking about possibly getting in the ring again … so if anyone is looking for something to help them to sleep, set your DVR’s.
Dana White Tells Mayweather If He Wants $150 Mil, He’s Gotta Fight Khabib In The UFC
Dana White’s FIRING BACK at Floyd Mayweather — sayin’ if he wants a 9-figure payday for fighting Khabib, it’s gotta be in the UFC.
TMZ Sports saw the UFC honcho outside the Montage in L.A. and asked him about Floyd’s make-or-break terms for the potential megafight with the UFC champ.
Remember, earlier this week, F.M. told us, “It’s my way, my rules. I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather!”
So, you could say Dana/Khabib and Floyd are at a stalemate.
“The answer is ‘no.’ He’s gonna have to come here and get his ass whoopin’,” White said … “We did that last time. You gotta come here this time.”
“Every time he wants to box. You wanna fight? Want to make 150 million? Come over here and get your ass whooped.”
So, unless someone gives in … this thing ain’t happening.
Speaking of fights that seem unlikely to go down … Dana also addresses the rumored Conor McGregor vs. Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone fight.
