Hes a master boxer, excelent defence. great puncher, and very quick and has a high boxing IQ but I feel like he doesnt throw more than a simple 1 2 at a time. Does anyone else feel like he could work on setting up higher punch combinations?

Against his current opposition I don't think he has to. I think if his one and two combinations get the job done, why change it? Every fighter does not have to throw 5 to 6 combinations to be effective, Mike has a good thing going, it would be career suicide if he jumps 3 weight classes to fight Manny.

i think it's also impressive that mikey can time and land the sharp 1-2 almost at will, which is a deceptively hard combo to find success with consistently esp if your opponent is expecting it.

i think mikey's camp should try to make the fight with gamboa. mikey has a good shot of winning this one IMO.

50 is doing his job, that might be his next fight.

Lets hope so.....gamboa I'd like a tune up but that might not happen ...Yuri has the speed advantage by far..he gets wobbly but so does Mikey ....he's gonna haveyo have a hell of a training camp. This wont be easy but he's not gonna get blown out like most love an preach on here. Mikey Gina have to be well prepared as well.

mikey garcia does exaclty what is needed, like ward said, you cant just blow out every opponent. i mean what the fuck, hbo has their 2nd top ko artist in mikey garcia, and they were shitting on him cuz he couldnt ko burgos, it makes me fuckin sick. mikey was smashing everybody, he finally faces a good solid fighter who is a veteran and isnt going down cuz he decided he couldnt win the fight so hed rather just go the distance, and they shittin on him, im glad ward put them in theyre place.

edit: man i would love to see gamboa in theyre next with mikey. that is a pick em fight, id go with mikey tho

Mikey will only get better, his ring IQ is very good and I think if and when he's faced with adversity he will respond the right way

My only fear is that Mikey will learn some bad habits from the other clowns in his camp lol Is he the only fighter with any defense in that gym?
