Former multi-division world champions Mikey Garcia and Danny Garcia appear set for a fight in the fall.
According to Mike Coppinger of The Athletic, both fighters have agreed to terms to have a welterweight bout later this year. The report does not specify a date or location for the bout, however, but PBC is expected to be involved.
BREAKING: Sources tell @TheAthletic that Mikey Garcia and Danny Garcia have agreed to terms for a fall showdown. I analyze what the fight means for each boxer in what will surely be billed as another chapter in the storied Mexico-Puerto Rico rivalry https://t.co/rPR5vwE0h3— Mike Coppinger (@MikeCoppinger) June 14, 2019
Mikey, a four-division world champion, is coming off an unsuccessful challenge for Errol Spence Jr.'s IBF welterweight title back in March. The fight, which took place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, saw Mikey lose to Spence by unanimous decision.
After the loss, Mikey vacated his WBC lightweight title and was named "Emeritus Champion" as he indicated that he would not be moving back down to lightweight for his next fight, but never said whether or not he would go to junior welterweight or welterweight. Mikey is currently ranked No. 3 by the WBA at 147 pounds.
Danny is a former junior welterweight and welterweight world champion, but has won just two of his last four fights with both losses being in title fights. Danny's last attempt at a world title came in September 2018 when he lost a close decision to current WBC champion Shawn Porter. The 31-year-old fighter, ranked No. 2 by the WBA, is coming off a seventh-round knockout win over Adrian Granados back on April 20.
