Title: Mikey Garcia
Post by: The Hurricane on November 09, 2017, 10:36:21 AM
Just read that Garcia turned down a 50/50 offer to fight Linares on 27th January 2018 as he had a better financial offer for a fight on Showtime.

There's a lot to like about Garcia talent wise, but it seems his career is going the same way as Adrian Broner's.  He is somehow a three weight world champion without any really notable wins and after a couple of years out of the ring just seems content to pick up pay cheques instead of engaging in meaningful contests and looking to prove himself as the best in the division.

18month ago everyone was waiting to see who heíd fight, who he was gonna beat ..

Having haymon as your Ďadviserí Ď promotorí Ďímanagerí or whatever the F*ck he is tends to have this effect on careers. 

Whoís looking out for him? I canít work out whoís meant to be running things in Garciaís career? Is he trying to look out for himself?

I didnít think Mikey Garcia was advised by Haymon? I thought he was a free agent which is why heís struggling for opponents. I read somewhere a few weeks ago that heís turning down big money fights because the opponents promoter wanted options on him.

I think he is a free agent but advised by Haymon who isnít officially a promoter. Bar Floyd, it seems all Haymon does for the most part is advise guys how to tank their careers. He didnít mention GB wanting options for the Linares fight. Seems more like he just wants a stack of money for another easy night which is the reason the PBC model has all but disappeared.

Thatís what I thought, adviser (promoter then though not Ďofficially) is a load of bollocks

Heís really screwed a lot up over there. Hundreds of Millions itís los I read

Haymon has been an absolute boil on the sports arse for a few years now. How many fighters careers is this 'invisible' tosspot ruining? They'll never admit it, but he's messed up the careers of both DeGale and Selby. They were both penny wise pound foolish signing with him. He does nothing for a fighters profile, he's a complete waste of space.

Look at the state of Wilder's profile?! More people attended Joshua's weigh in than bothered going to watch Wilder's fight!

The sooner Haymon just p*sses off back to wherever he came from the better.
