Mikey Garcia Talks To The Media – The afternoon of Wednesday, January 25th saw the fighters for Showtime’s Saturday boxing extravaganza take part in workouts that were open to the media and public.
Undefeated lightweight Mikey Garcia (35-0) is preparing to face Dejan Zlaticanin (22-0) for the Montenegran’s WBC world title at 135 pounds. Garcia has held world titles at featherweight and super featherweight and at 28 years old he is looking to add a world title in a third weight class to his resume. Zlaticanin won the WBC belt in June of last year with a third round TKO stoppage over Bolivia’s Franklin Mamani on a Showtime broadcast and he returns for his first title defense here against Garcia.
The fight serves as a co-feature to the Leo Santa Cruz – Carl Frampton rematch for the WBA version of the featherweight belt. The live event is set for Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada and the hotel is hosting all of the fight week festivities. Check your local listings for start times on the Showtime Network.
