Former world champions Mikey Garcia (39-1, 30 KOs) and Danny “Swift” Garcia (35-2, 21 KOs) are in negotiations to fight each other in August at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
The winner of the Danny Garcia vs. Mikey fight is expected to be face the winner of the July 20th fight between Manny Pacquiao and WBA Super World welterweight champion Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman, according to Lance Pugmire of the LA Times.
“Al Haymon trying to secure a late summer date at STAPLES Center. The premise is that the winner fights Manny Pacquiao [vs.] Keith Thurman winner,” Pugmire said.
Danny and Mikey are in “advanced” talks for a fight possible for August 31 on Fox Sports PPV. Mikey didn’t do well against the unbeaten Spence (25-0, 21 KOs) in their fight on May 16 on on Fox Sports pay-per-view at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. There’s a huge difference between the talent that Spence possesses and that of Danny Garcia. Spence threw 1,000 punches against Mikey.
