I was able to get a quick interview with Mikey Garcia the morning after his valiant effort at beating 147 pound Champion Errol Spence Jr, and here a few quotes from that interview:
On his feelings about the fight and what went right/wrong: “I just wasn’t able to hurt him”
On the difference the size and weight made: “Obviously it was gonna make a difference but I made adjustments to overcome those things. He had an answer in return for all my adjustments. “
On whether Spence had a good game plan: “Like I said he had answers for everything and fought very well. He boxed effectively, used the distance, and his height and reach to his advantage”
The full interview is posted below and we would just like to state that Mikey Garcia fought very well and displayed championship skills, conditioning, courage, and guile. The reason Mikey lost had more to do with everything Errol Spence Jr did right than it did with anything Mikey or Team Garcia did wrong. As Mikey said, Errol Spence performed very well and he’s a great champion, as is Mikey Garcia.
