Garcia 100% vs Pacquiao
Mapa-non-title o championship bout, seryoso at ‘di aatras si World Boxing Council (WBC) WBC interim lightweight champion Ryan Garcia kay eight division world titlist Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Pacquiao sa oras na matuloy ang nilulutong bakbakan.
“My heart was set on Gervonta Davis and I was focused on that. But suddenly you get a call and they say, ‘You can fight Manny Pacquiao.’ What are you going to say to that?,” sambit ng American undefeated champion sa ESPN Deportes nitong Sabado. “One of your heroes, one of the people you admire the most and they tell you that you have a chance to face him, I said let’s go for it one hundred percent.”
Sa kasalukuyan, wala pang final talks sa inaabangang laban ng dalawang boksingero pati na rin sa weight division.
Itinalagang “champion in recess” si Pacquiao ng World Boxing Associuation (WBA) kasabay sa paghubad sa kanya ng super featherweight championship dahil sa kanyang inactivity sapul nang maagaw ang titulo kay Keith Thurman ng America noong July 2019. (Janiel Abby Toralba)
