I’m on record as saying that 2019 will be an even better year than 2018 in boxing, because we will see a couple super fights play out.
Bob Arum, who joined us on the latest TALKBOX podcast, seems to agree.
I asked Arum about one of those super clashes, which would feature a true blue face-off for supremacy, a Vasyl Lomachenko versus Mikey Garcia scrap.
“I think the fight I’d like to make,” said Arum, “is Loma and Mikey Garcia. That would be an interesting fight the fans would like.”
Arum said he talked to Mikey’s bro Robert Garcia, in Fresno, last week, because he trains Jose Ramirez.
“Then let’s sit down and put it together, whatever it takes,” Arum told Robert, after Dec. 8, when Vasyl Lomachenko fights Jose Pedraza in NYC, at Madison Square Garden.
Fans, let’s get out ahead of ourselves; who wins, Lomachenko vs Mikey Garcia, and how?
