After nearly 20-months since his last outing, Mikey Garcia makes his return to the ring when he faces Spanish opponent Sandor Martin this Sunday (AEST) in California with an Australian prospect set to make his US debut on the card as well.
Both boxers bring extensive experience into the ring with Garcia having competed at a higher level. The 33-year-old has multiple world championship victories across four-weight divisions with his lone loss coming at the hands of Errol Spence Jr while attempting to win a title in a fifth-weight division. In his last outing, Garcia rebounded to win a unanimous decision against Jessie Vargas.
Since making his debut in July 2006 as an 18-year-old, Garcia has racked up a 40-1 record, with 30 (73%) coming via knock-out. He has yet to be stopped in 238 rounds of professional.
Twenty-eight-year-old Martin will have youth on his side and comes into the contest the fresher fighter, having competed back in April where he won a decision in front of his crowd back in April this year. He is the current European super-lightweight champion and is a natural super-lightweight, having competed in the division since his early professional bouts.
It will be the biggest challenge of Martin’s career and one he will hope to be up for, to propel him to bigger things. Martin holds a 38-2 record and is more a technical boxer with only 13 knock-outs (32%) on his record. He is riding a nine-fight win streak since suffering a second career loss back in 2017. With two decision losses, he has yet to be stopped in 254 rounds.
Brock Jarvis makes his US debut
For Australian fans, the attention will on Jeff Fenech’s protege Brock Jarvis who is scheduled to face Alejandro Frias Rodriguez on the undercard. Having recently signed a deal with Matchroom boxing, this will be his first fight as part of that contract.
The 23-year-old holds an unblemished 19-0 (17 KOs) record while his Mexican opponent will come in with a record of 13-4, 2 draws (6 KO’s).
