    I don't think so...Garcia is a big dude and much stronger at 130-135

    He cherrypicked a practitioner of one of the multitude of Slick Euro styles (the Slick Spanish Style in this instance) and paid for it dearly just like The Tuscaloser did when he cherrypicked the finest practitioner of the Slick British Style to ever do it in Tyson Fury.

    Its like Adrien Broner all over again. Too small for the division he is fighting in. The guys now at 135 are big. Not sure where he goes from here.

    Yeah looks that way. He’s an idiot everyone from his fans to his own team were telling him not to take that fight. Hope the check was worth it.

    There's a few good fights for him at 135 now.

    Whether he can find the motivation to get down to 135 and work his way into contention for them is another matter entirely.

    Extremely difficult for a fighter to remain hungry and focused after he's received that much money for one fight.

    Ellie Seckbach told him he should go up to 154 or middleweight and win a title there.
