    Really? Not a bad fight but would have much rather Garcia fought Linares

    Is it settled yet? All I read is it's being talked about.

    I hope it's done at 140lb. Otherwise, 135 would be a huge advantage for García.

    Either weight is a huge advantage for Garcia. He is completely in another class. I thought that Figueroa would be better than he ended up being. He is good but by no means great. Whether at 135 or 140, it won’t last the distance.

    It won't be at 35, no way. Probably not 140 either. I bet they'll agree to fight at 145 or thereabouts.

    Doubt Figueroa can make 140. Mikey picks him apart. I like Omar, he's all action but Mikey is on another level.

    Being talked about for Jan27th same night as Linares and Matthysee sharing a card on HBO. Figueroa will kill himself trying to make 135 me thinks, way to wide and step behind Garcia all night. Actually would like to see Garcia v Easter instead.

    Good for figs for taking the fight. I'd actually like to see him win but don't see a lot of hope. Figs had the option of going pro baseball but opted for boxing, very good athlete

    Any word on what happened to the Easter negotiations? Another fight that seemed all but done then kind of disappeared.

    Im thinking maybe Al Haymon happend, he's going to death grip the A side with his guys as long as possible or keep 'big' fights in house. Still think a lot of this scramble is also Garcia and company needing to pick a direction.
