Mikey Garcia says he was supposed to fight Manny Pacquiao last year but negotiations did not materialize due to the coronavirus pandemic
Mikey Garcia has his fingers crossed that his potential bout against Manny Pacquiao develops, but he is ready to “move on” if ever it falls through.
The American is rumored to be the next opponent of the Filipino boxing legend as Pacquiao seeks to make his keenly awaited ring return after a near two-year hiatus.
“Nothing has happened,” Garcia said in a YouTube video posted by KO Artist Sports on Saturday, May 8. “We’re hoping we can finally maybe get that. But I’m also ready to move on if that is not going to happen.”
“We’ve been in talks for almost 3 months. If that does not happen, then we’re ready to move on and search for another fight.”
