The information about the possible match between the Filipino and the US boxer, which will be held in Dubai, has appeared on social media. The published banner hints at Mikey’s possible bout against the ex-eight-division world champion.
Pacquiao and Garcia are at different levels
While Manny Pacquiao has established himself as one of the world’s best boxers, Garcia is far from this level as he hasn’t made any effort to get to the list of top 15 sportsmen of the International Boxing Federation. Taking into consideration his bouts, he is an average fighter but not the one to face Pacquiao.
This is the major reason why the Filipino’s decision (if it is true) to choose this person as an opponent will look strange. The boxer could prefer such big-name fighters as Errol Spence Jr., Shawn Porter, Yordenis Ugas, for example. However, Manny has all chances to be defeated with such rivals that is why lower-level boxers are more interesting for him. At the same time, this match is even more desired by Mikey Garcia, who is getting out of shape gradually, gaining weight. It seems that the bout against the eminent boxer is the only opportunity for him to cash in before retirement.
