Undefeated #1 contender Mikey Garcia hosted a media workout on Thursday in Riverside, California, to show his form for his upcoming world title fight against WBO world featherweight champion Orlando Salido on Saturday, Jan 19 at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, live on HBO. Garcia (30-0, 26 KOs) will enter the ring having won 14 of his past 15 bouts by knockout. The 24-year-old is trained by his father Eduardo Garcia and co-managed by his brother, 2012 Trainer of the Year Robert Garcia, the former IBF junior lightweight champion. Mikey is considered to be one of boxing’s top young prospects.
