In today’s spontaneous episode, the panel discusses the recent comments from Mikey Garcia who has stated that he is willing to move up to welterweight in order to fight Keith Thurman. The Thurman heat is nothing new as fighters continue to call him out since defeating Danny Garcia in what was his biggest marque victory to date. 

But Mikey Garcia calling out Thurman is somewhat surprising being that Garcia has yet to achieve a major fight within his own division since returning from a two and half year layoff. The TBV hosts will discuss the surprising nature of Garcia reaching so far out of his division when there are other mainstream fights closer to his weight class.  
Garcia returned in July of 2016 and has fought only once more since, although in his second return fight he won the WBC lightweight title Dejan Zlaticanin.
In a recent interview posted on ESNEWS’ YouTube channel, Mikey was critical of Thurman’s latest win. He thought Thurman coasted a bit in the later rounds and likened it to Oscar De La Hoya’s famous “tale of two halves” fight against Felix “Tito” Trinidad. Mikey’s critique alluded to the belief that he may hold the key to a Thurman win.
Furthermore, Garcia admitted he’d like to fight Thurman in a FightHype interview, stating that he’d like a summer fight with Thurman at 147lbs. Although, Garcia did state that he’d come back down in weight after attempting to move up for a fight with Thurman.
Nestor “Nes” Gibbs, Boxing MD, and Matthew “The Editor” will talk about today’s event with the TBV family.
