Lightweight boxer Mikey Garcia lights up 300+lb BEHEMOTH in sparring

Sunday, March 04, 2018

Current WBC lightweight champion, Mikey Garcia, is currently undefeated in his professional boxing career, possessing an astonishing record of 37-0 with 30 of those wins coming by way of knockout.

In this video which took place at the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Riverside, California, we see Garcia sparring with and subsequently ‘lighting up’ a massive behemoth of a man who reportedly weighs in at well over 300lbs. That makes him more than twice the size of Garcia who currently competes at no more than 140lbs.

While his sparring partner in this video is surely an intimidating, imposing figure, when it comes to boxing technique, he is clearly a beginner.

This video is also a good example of how important endurance is in a sport like boxing as the big guy is very quick to tire which really should come as no surprise, though.

In addition to his undefeated record and numerous titles and career accolades, Garcia is also currently ranked the 6th pound for pound best active boxer by Ring Magazine.

Garcia’s next fight is scheduled to take place on March 10th versus another undefeated boxer, Sergey Lipinets, for the IBF junior welterweight title.
