Garcia could possibly be one of boxings biggest turn arounds. The complete fighter at one stage of his career, promising prospect, good footwork and impeccable ability. The WBC Welterweight Champion has undergone huge criticism and a lot of jokes have been at his expense from fellow boxers, none more so than the fighters in his division.
This Saturday he faces Samuel Vargas in Philadelphia, though he is the current WBC Welterweight Champion, the title is not going to be on the line! Admittedly it’s a tune up fight, but there is no reason the belt had not been santionced by the governing body for the fight. Garcia coming in at a massive favourite with the bookies, this fight is sure to be another pointless victory to his resume.
Providing he comes through this not to testing test (which he will) then his next fight is a unification fight with Keith Thurman with Thurmans WBA title on the line, and Garcia’s WBC also. This is dated for the 4th March 2017.
