  • Jessie Vargas feels Mikey Garcia fight is a 'do-or-die situation' for him

The main event will be a clash of former world champions between Mikey Garcia and Jessie Vargas. "I've shown that I am more than just a fighter-but right now for this next fight I just want to show what I can do in the ring". But that's not the image I want the young fans to see.

Garcia recently signed with promoter Eddie Hearn, who indicated on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show earlier this week that Garcia could figure into Pacquiao's plans later this year. "The Spence fight was not a representation of that". The main card begins at 8 p.m. ET. on global sports streaming network DAZN. Little did Vargas know at the time that the fallout from that proposed bout would mark the genesis for the Garcia fight.

"I think that there's a lot more that I can do at 147 pounds", Garcia said via fightsports.tv.

The official weigh-in ceremony was conducted a day before the fight show. Sometimes a fighter in that position is actually risky because of what he wants to prove. "And I gotta earn it".

One of the questions that come is why Garcia would stay in the welterweight. I feel this a good way to get back on track against a big name in search of winning a world title in a fifth different weight class.

Mikey Garcia dared to be great last March, leaping up two weight divisions to contest welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr.at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

After the big heavyweight showdown this past weekend between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, our focus will be in the welterweight division this Saturday. Garcia only steps into the ring at 147 pounds for the second time. On the flight back home, I was already preparing for the future.

The victor of Saturday's headliner will likely position himself for an even bigger fight later in the year, whether for a title or simply another massive payday.

"There's no shame in the loss to me", Garcia said. I'm feeling good, I know Mikey is a good fighter.

Fact: Chocolatito is the first boxer from Nicaragua to win world titles in four weight classes, having surpassed his mentor, idol, and former three-weight world champion, the late Alexis Argüello. The California local has registered 29 wins in 33 fights, with 18 wins coming by means of determination. However, an illness prevented Parker to move forward with the fight. I bet I can win more fights, and I bet those wins will lead to something even bigger. The twelve-round championship bout serves as a co-feature on the night. With nearly a year off, Garcia is back and ready to make another attempt at a world title in the welterweight division.

He scored his most impressive win when he knocked out Sadam Ali in 2016 to win a welterweight title, and though he's lost to A-level fighters like Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, he has experience and has beaten plenty of B-level competition in the past several years. The result proved that Garcia bit off more than he could box, as he was shut out in a lopsided unanimous decision for his first pro loss. "Jessie Vargas fits the name".

Vargas conducts himself similarly to the way that Garcia has always carried himself. "He's got the size and the height". The undercard will also feature two world title fights and a return of a top heavyweight contender.

"I think you have to challenge yourself, and you have to keep giving fans big fights", Garcia said. However, that's not the mindset Garcia possesses.

Though there was talk Garcia could return to the lower weight classes, he made a decision to stay at 147 pounds and challenge Vargas (29-2-2, 11 KOs).

Fortunately for Garcia, Vargas is not almost as talented as Spence.

Yafai has stated that he wants a unification fight with WBC champion Juan Francisco Estrada, and perhaps that will be the next move if he can get by Gonzalez.

"That's what I'm about", Garcia said.
