Mikey Garcia Set to Defend WBO Super Featherweight Title Against Juan Carlos Burgos
Tonight, the undefeated WBO Super Featherweight Champ, Mikey Garcia (33-0 with 28 KO) will attempt to defend his title against Mexican boxer, Juan Carlos Burgos (30-1-2 with 20 KO) in New York at the Madison Square Garden Theater.
This fight should be a very interesting fight and may prove to be one of Mikey Garcia’s toughest opponents.
Last Year Around this time, Juan Carlos Burgos had a draw to Roman Martinez for the WBO Super Featherweight in a fight that many people believe he should have won by unanimous decision. So you can beat he has the passion to get the belt he believes he deserves.
Unfortunately for him,Garcia is not going to give it up that easy. He is a very smart fighter, who is usually also a slow starter. He has the speed and power to counter and lay someone out. Garcia is one of those guys that you want to keep an eye out for, there are great things on the horizon for him, if he can get by Burgos tonight.
In my opinion, Burgos will have to attack and adjust his attacks throughout the fight, because Garcia can pickup on the routine and make Burgos pay with his countering.
All the action can be caught tonight on HBO at 9:45 pm ET starting with a Heavyweight clash between Bryant Jennings and Artur Szpilka.
