Mikey Garcia lost his Featherweight WBO title in his last fight against Juan Manuel Lopez on the scales due to his not making weight.He will get a chance at grabbing the Super Featheweight version of the WBO title Saturday night against champion Roman Martinez.This will be a good fight in the early rounds but most likely end in a very bad way for Martinez.
Even having to cut weight to the point of being sick and throwing up until fight night,Mikey Garcia ran through Juan Manuel Lopez like a hot knife through butter.Now that he will not have to kill himself making weight,one can only imagine how fast and explosive he will be.The problem for Martinez is his defense.He has the heart of a champion but he is a straight forward fighter who comes right at you.He doesn’t have anywhere near a good defense.That is a huge problem against Mikey Garcia.Garcia also has a big power advantage.The fight could be competitive early as the fighter’s feel each other out but how will Martinez stop the onslaught Garcia lays on every opponent? The answer is he won’t.Garcia will win this fight by knockout or TKO in the middle rounds in what will look like a mismatch even though Martinez is champion.Garcia is going to be a star for many years to come and until he is in with someone with big power and at least a decent defense he will keep steam rolling opponents like this.
PREDICTION: GARCIA BY 5TH ROUND KO!
