Mickey Garcia vs. Regis in talks to fight over Progress, Dazan Boxing News 24

By Dan Ambrose: Mickey Garcia is in talks for a fall fight against former WBA 140-lb champion Regis ‘Rugarou’ Progress on DAZN. Mickey has lost a lot of weight during his long layoff. ESPN’s Mike Koppinger reports the fight.

Progress may be a little too good for Mickey as he has been out of the ring. It’s been years since Mickey has been an active two-fight fighter in a year, and he can lose a lot of his game because of his inaction.

During the pandemic, Mickey was trying to fight the battle against Manny Pacquiao, but couldn’t. Pacquiao decided to go in a different direction to face IBF/WBC Welterweight Champion Errol Spence Jr. on August 21.

You can’t blame Pacquiao for taking that fight because, unlike Mickey, Spence has kept active with his career.

“I think it’s a great matchup for some reason because it’s an aggressive fight.R, he’s accomplished, former world champion and he’s also hungry to reclaim that spot and get a big win,” said Mickey Garcia ESPN Further progress is being faced regarding that.

“I’ve been off for a little over a year and a half now,” Garcia said.

Mickey says that he has only been out of the ring for a year and a half, but he is not saying that he was out of action for 2 1/2 years from 2014 to 2016. He has lost a lot of time with his career since 2014. , about four years.

It’s hard to know what Mickey has left behind at this point in his career. If Mickey had been active for all these years, he would have accomplished much more with his career, and his skills would not have eroded. The way Mickey looked against Jesse Vargas last year, he was nothing like the fighter he once was.

Of course, Mickey was fighting on 147, and his power hasn’t reached that weight class. When Mickey was fighting at 126, he could get away with a lower work rate, but he couldn’t do the same at 140 and 147.

To win those weight classes, Mickey must throw more punches, and so far he hasn’t shown he can. At 140 years old, Mickey beat his dominant Adrian Bronner in 2017 and struggled to beat Sergei Lipnitsa in 2018.

Mickey also took a lot of punishment against Lipinates. He won, but his face was sorely swollen from Lipinate’s shots. When you look at the problems Mickey has been given, it’s impossible to see him beating Progress. Lipinate is nowhere near as good as Progress, and yet that Mickey looked average.

Facing Progress (26-1, 22 KO) is a huge money move for Mickey, but it’s a match that will put him in a position to win lucrative matches against Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis and Ryan Garcia .

It is an uphill battle for former four-division world champion Mikey (40-1, 30 KO) as he hasn’t fought in a year and a half since his premier Jesse Vargas’ last 12-round majority decision in February 2020. .

Mickey, 33, didn’t look as good in the second half of that competition after Vargas was knocked out in the fifth round. Vargas takes advantage of Mickey’s anemia and is able to climb back into the fight.

Although two judges widened it for Mickey, scoring it 116–111 x 2, the third judge correctly scored it with a score of 114–113. Mickey barely won the fight, and he was up against a completely washed-out Vargas.

Mickey might have to regret this fight with Progress because it’s a guy who must have defeated everyone but Spence. There’s no one on Mickey’s resume who won’t be able to beat Progress once Spence is taken out of the equation.

Spence easily defeated Mickey, vacating him in March 2019 by an embarrassing one-sided 12-round unanimous decision.

You could argue that Spence would have stopped Mickey if he hAcesparks’t chosen to fight to see him retire.

Spence later said that he wanted to prove one thing that he could outbox Mickey because so many boxing fans were raving about his technical prowess in the lead up to the clash.

The only round in that fight in which Spence took him to Mickey was in the ninth, and it made him look like he was ready to be out. That round showed that Spence could have taken out Mickey if he had chosen.

“I think it’s the biggest fight at 140,” Progress told ESPN. “He has a great name.

“I think it’s going to be a really big, big fight. I want to fight the best; I’ve been telling you I want to be champion again. If I can’t find Josh Taylor, I guess That Mickey is bigger than anyone right now.
