Mikey Garcia believe that the fight between Manny pacquiao Y Yordenis ugas is not close to generating the interest that the clash had with Errol spence.
“He’s screwed up and he’s very sad. Errol was forced out of the fight and that really sucks a week into the fight, “he said. Mikey to Fighthype. “It’s terrible, I can’t imagine the feeling of being training and not being able to fight with so little time ahead. Manny I was also ready, and I’m sure they would have put on a great show. “
Spence was forced to withdraw from the bout where he would expose the WBC and IBF belts to Manny pacquiao due to an injury to the retina, which forced him to undergo surgery.
Later, the organizers placed the Cuban Yordenis ugas, champion of the AMB, as the rival of Pacman after making it known that his opponent for that same evening (Fabian Maidana) suffered a cut that also forced him to withdraw from the fight.
For Garcia, the Pacquiao-ugas It is a good fight, but even so it is far from generating great expectations as the clash with Spence.
“Now he has Yordenis ugas”, He pointed. “It is not an easy fight, it is a good match, but it is not the great show in other marketing senses. There are not as many excited people, as there were for the fight with Errol“.
Mikey He also spoke of the possibility for Pacquiao hang up your gloves next August 21st.
“I’ve heard different people say that he planned to do two fights this year and then retire,” he said. “Of course, I feel like I would change the matter depending on the result of the first fight. If someone ends up hurt or knocked out, I feel like Manny I might think about retiring. “
Mikey He considered that depending on how the body of the Filipino responds in the recovery, it will be key to know if we will see him again or not.
“Win or lose, it doesn’t really matter,” he noted. “If your body takes on serious punishment and is hurt, that can change everything. No one knows if he will actually be able to make another fight before the year is out. If he wins and does not receive as much punishment or does not suffer a cut, maybe he can put another one on the calendar. “
