Cobbs Targets Thurman, Mikey Garcia, Broner, Benn: 'I've Been Trying To Get Top Contenders'

The mission remains the same for Blair ‘The Flair’ Cobbs. A stiff test awaits the outspoken welterweight, who next faces Alexis Rocha in a scheduled 10-round co-feature on Saturday’s DAZN show from USC Galen Center in Los Angeles. The hope is that—with a win—Cobbs can proceed with his usual list of more notable boxers with whom he’d prefer to share a ring.

Mikey Garcia: “I Think Canelo Stops GGG At This Point Now”

Through 24 hard-fought rounds between Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin, most of the boxing world is still split on who was the better fighter. Although on paper Alvarez has the edge, having picked up a split decision draw and majority decision win in their two-part sequel, the Mexican star is preparing to put the final nail in Golovkin’s coffin.

Mikey Garcia on Spence-Ugas: That's A Dangerous Fight For Spence, Coming Off Eye Surgery

Mikey Garcia thinks Errol Spence’s surgically-repaired left eye is the wild card in the latter’s upcoming bout against Yordenis Ugas. Although it has not been formally announced yet, Spence and Ugas are scheduled to face each other in the spring in a welterweight unification bout that will put up for grabs Spence’s WBC/IBF titles and Ugas’ WBA belt. Spence recently posted on social media that the fight will take place in April.

Mikey Garcia On Spence-Ugas: “I Can’t Even Tell You Whose Going To Win”

“Put a lot of smiles on kid’s faces,” Mikey Garcia tells ESnews about a recent charity event for children in need that he took part in. It’s been a few months since the Californian dropped a decision to Sandor Martin, but the multi-division titlist appears in the interview to be as relaxed, polite, and pleasant as he always has. This is not a guy who is going to let a defeat or two get to him – a good thing in an age where undefeated records are frankly held at too much of a premium. Among other things in the interview, Garcia is asked for his thoughts on what looks to be the upcoming Errol Spence-Yordenis Ugas welterweight title matchup.

Mikey Garcia Willing To Move Back Down To Lightweight To Face Devin Haney

It was a jaw-dropping moment for both Mikey Garcia and his extremely large fanbase. As the former four-division titlist began gearing up for a showdown against Regis Prograis, the California native first decided to take on the unheralded Sandor Martin. Although Garcia walked into their showdown as an enormous favorite, he was taken aback at the overall skills of Martin.

2021 Northern California Fight of the Year – Mikey Garcia vs Sandor Martin

The fight wasn’t great, the bout was uninteresting, but it is historically really important, and boxing in Northern California the past two-years has been a barren wasteland. As we currently seemingly have only two local promoters constantly putting on shows, those being, Toscano Boxing Promotions, and Uppercut Promotions, as...

Conor Benn: If Broner Fight Doesn't Happen, Would Love To Fight Danny Garcia, Mikey Garcia

Conor Benn remains hopeful that Eddie Hearn will be able to offer Adrien Broner enough money to entice the former champion to box Benn early in 2022. If, no matter how high Hearn can go, Broner won’t commit to battling Benn, the emerging English welterweight is more than willing to face former champions from the United States who’ve either beaten Broner or seemingly have more championship-caliber boxing left in them than Broner at these respective stages they occupy in their careers. The 25-year-old Benn (20-0, 13 KOs), a son of British legend Nigel Benn, discussed his options with BoxingScene.com following his one-punch, fourth-round knockout of former WBO junior welterweight champ Chris Algieri (25-4, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at Echo Arena in Liverpool, England.

Opinion: Mikey Garcia makes excuses over Errol Spence Jr. loss over two years later

If Mikey Garcia’s boxing career is complete, he is going out unceremoniously. Garcia informed the world late Sunday evening that he was sick leading up to his March 2019 title bout against current unified welterweight titleholder Errol Spence Jr., who landed a career-high 345 punches en route to a shutout 12-round unanimous decision over the previously unbeaten fighter.

Mikey Garcia: Too Deliberate For His Own Good?

You can tell a lot about people watching them eat. Take Mikey Garcia, for instance. Some time ago, I caught a video interview with the multi-division titlist. Garcia looked as if he might have been approached while enjoying a breakfast sandwich. He wasn’t irritable, however. As always, the man was polite. He also appeared to be aware of his eating process, making it a point to carefully dab at his face with a napkin to keep from making a mess. This clearly wasn’t a person to talk with his mouth full. My mother would have approved. That interview said volumes about Garcia. I can’t recall what he talked about in the clip, but I remember the careful way he ate that sandwich. Here was a guy, I concluded, who was keenly aware of his own actions.
