It would appear that a boxing champion is looking to meet Max Holloway inside the ring.
WBC lightweight champion Mikey Garcia recently took to the internet to announce that he is currently working on locking down a match up against the UFC featherweight champion. As seen in the video above, here is what Garcia had to say:
“I’m pretty excited. I want to come to Hawaii. I here Hawaii is pretty excited about me. We want to get in the ring and give you guys a great fight. We are looking at Max Holloway, who I know is a great fighter and a great UFC champion. He’s the best. So why not get in the ring and give the fans another great fight?
“Max Holloway says he’s ready and he’s excited about this. I’m excited. I’m ready, just want to know if Hawaii is ready. I already spoke to Big Ben, the promoter, and he’s excited. We are working on finalizing the details, but we really look forward to coming out there. We are looking at April of 2018.”
While it would appear that the two fighters have allegedly entered a verbal agreement to meet inside the ring, an official announcement of the event has yet to be made.
Only time will tell if anything comes of Mikey Garcia’s hopes to see Holloway inside a ring.
