Former four-division world champion Miguel Angel Mikey Garcia (40-2, 30 KOs) declared the end of his career.
And the American did it rather imperceptibly. Garcia changed his status on social media: “Mikey Garcia, public figure. Retired World Champ at 126, 130, 135, 140 lbs”
Mikey Garcia is 34 years old. His professional career began in 2006. In January 2013, he became the world champion for the first time, winning the WBO featherweight title (57.2 pounds) and defeating Mexican Orlando Salido. Subsequently, Garcia won the welterweight, light heavyweight, and welterweight titles. During his career, he held The Ring (2013), WBO (2013-2014), WBC (2017-2019), and IBF (2018) belts.
In his last fight in October 2021, Garcia unexpectedly lost by split decision to little-known Spaniard Sandor Martin (40-2, 13 KOs). His first loss was to welterweight leader compatriot Errol Spence Jr. in March 2019.
