Terence Crawford Would Like To Welcome Mikey Garcia Back To Boxing

If you read in between the lines, it’s looking, maybe, like we will be seeing Mikey Garcia back in the ring soon.

I texted the boxer to ask him, but didn’t hear back..

But the clues…If you see his Twitter feed, he’s talking as if it’s going to happen, like he’s going to glove up for the first time since January 2014.

I reached out to Top Rank, who has promoted 34-0 Mikey. Nope, nothing signed, I was told by a source there.

The Cali-based boxer has been rumored to have talked to a few promoters in the last year or so, so until we get word that he has signed paper with someone, it’s all really speculation. But what isn’t speculation is a willing candidate who’d like to welcome Garcia back to the fold.

Terence Crawford (26-0), the 2014 BWAA Fighter of the Year, would be happy to show Mikey what he has, or maybe hasn’t, been missing.

“If Mikey wants that butt kicking, tell him to come get it,” Crawford trainer/co-manager Brian McIntyre told me. The Nebraska based teacher continued. “Mikey can get that work!” He said he’s made some calls and asked around to parties that could help make a Crawford-Mikey tangle a reality, and has received some positive feedback from some peoples.

Frankly, I’d be surprised, pleasantly, if Garcia, a guy who hasn’t fought since January of 2014, hopped right back in the mix against a guy the caliber of Crawford. He’d be sure to receive blowback from armchair matchmakers…but if he believes in his mettle, and thinks he can shed rust and handle “Bud,” more power to him.

Mickey is not dancing with "Bud." Or drinking Bud light -- I mean taking Bud lightly. At this stage of da game, even Money May would not call out Bud. Nuff said! Holla!

Arum is pushing for the fight, and would like to see Mikey get defeated before he jumps ship.

Ole Bob must be mad after building Garcia up only to have him try and leave the outfit. It is not cheap building up guys in the beginning of their career. I would favor TC over Garcia ,especially for being inactive and in courtrooms. M Garcia looks like his head doubled in size and he weighs over 170. At this point he might be done in a few years and become a cop.

Deep, Mikey is going to sign with the ?

Where has Mikey been and why is this talented, uniquely gifted and elite quality fighter wasting away like Gamboa? Crawford is way to big and far to active for the hibernating Mikey Garcia, but I'd love to see the fight if and when Mikey returns to fighting form.(and has grown enough physical mass for the challenge).

He is too active, but not too big. Holla!
