Mikey Garcia

WBO World Champion

1.) What advice do you have for an aspiring boxer?

Like any fighter, you have to have dreams and goals. For a fighter, your dream/goal should be to become a World Champion whether you want to be a 3x, 4x, 5x World Champion, you have to do it once first! To get to be a champion, it starts out in the gym. No one will hand you a belt, you have to work at it by putting hours in the gym and staying focused.

 

2.) What has been the highlight of your career?

We’ve had some good fights this year. This year has been great. My highlights would be winning the world title in January against Orlando Salido, then in November against Roman Martinez.

 

3.) What are your goals for 2014?

We want to make sure that in 2014 we have another good year. Maybe defend my title two times and maybe move up a weight class and challenge for another world title.  We want to make sure that all of my fights from now on are against big names, and for world titles.

 

4.) What do you like to do in your free time?

Just hang out, watch TV and movies, and go shooting at the range.

 

5.) What does a typical training day look like for you?

Get up in the morning, do the morning exercises for about one hour, rest, go to the gym (spar against two different guys for 10-12 rounds) for 2-3 hours. We work a lot in the gym.

 

6.) Who has been the toughest opponent you’ve faced?

All the guys are tough and world championship material now. I have a good game plan and I make it easy for myself, that’s why I haven’t had any brawls.

 

7.) Who were your heroes growing up?

People I followed, and still do would be Floyd Mayweather. He has been the best fighter since I was 12-14 year old. I looked up to him because of his skills, and intelligence. I think he is the best fighter in the world.
