Ryan Garcia will fight Manny Pac. Strange match up but why not, should be fun
Saw an article on this in 'Ring' magazine, still not sure what to make of it. The only indication of the fight is coming from Garcia's Instagram.

They're separated by two weight classes, so that's an interesting question in itself.

Curious to see what develops from here.

Ive seen people talking about it on twitter as though its official. God knows why its happening but Pac is a part time fighter now, im assuming hes getting most of the money. Probably all the sense it needs to make for him now

Weight class, meet in the middle? Pac isnt huge for 147 anyway. I do think he wins this as hes still got enough in the tank. Fun fight, though very left field

As this article points out, Manny hasn't been under 140 for over a decade, since he fought Hatton. So he'll probably have to drop to that, and Garcia will drift up in weight...which means he's happy to get back down to 135 after.

I like the fight, but it just seems like such a detour for Garcia, who's sitting in --I think-- the most exciting division in boxing.

Garcia v Tank...please.

It's actually a fun fight imo.

But his brothers fight (Logan vs Floyd) is the real head scratcher. He's got 15cm on Floyd. Any weight goes? *Just read that this fight has been postponed from feb 20 to christ knows.

Lucas Browne? Oh sh*t, the guy is a glutton for punishment now, Whyte absolutely hurt him.

give it away now Lucas, you’re recently married and your wife doesn’t need an invalid to take care of.

That was three years ago.
He has won 4 of next 5 fights since.
I highly doubt this fight goes ahead but if it does I would have Browne at winx like odds.

Browne has accepted the date and purse. If it doesn't happen now after Gallen claims he also accepted then someone has really stuffed up.

Browne is washed by boxing standards, but he's better than Hunt at this stage who should have won with slightly more effort

He was so brutally undersized v Charlo.

Odds on this fight look completely different had he been rightly given the nod v Munguia, then Charlo fight would never have happened. This is a good test for Tim, who he should have fought instead of that last pointless fight. Still, got a feeling afterwards we'll all be saying what we've said since Horn, Tim needs to go overseas
