Not only his he p4p material but he may be the next star in boxing. Of Mexican decent, Mikey Garcia will capture the public eye with his crowd pleasing style
He's orthodox with an amazing boxer-puncher style. KO power in both hands, good speed, good jab with a great left-hook and even better jab straight right hand. Can box in the center, on the back foot, inside and counter-punch with a great ring iq.
He is stepping his game up and most recently knocked out a game Rafael Guzman in devasting fashion with a perfect 1,2 last june on HBO.
I think he is a VERY special fighter and imo would ktfo the likes of a Gamboa or Juanma Lopez. Personally i'd favor Garcia over Nonito Donaire who is still fighting little guys at 118
Garcia is somewhat hesitant about taking on the top fighters in his division, and you can hear it in his voice in his post-fight interviews. He
is almost sure that he needs to take on a few more guys before he makes that big step. Of course a fighter is going to say that he is ready for a title shot when asked during an interview, thats just the right thing to say. That's just like a chick asking you, "Do you think you can handle me?"...of course you're not gonna say, "Well, I think I need a couple more "easy pieces" then I will be ready." Hell no! You will say, "Hell yeah I can handle you girl, I will make a highlight film with your ass!" Whether thats true or not, should answer with confidence...especially if it's an obvious question.
Obviously he folded up Remillard (had his ear swole up, lol) and Guzman (made him do a rolling flip when he went down, lol), but he isn't quite ready for Gamboa, Juanma, Salido, or Donaire (definitely not). If he happens to land a fight with Salido, and gives him a hard time, then I will give him a chance against the weakest link of this group...which could be Juanma or Salido (only because Salido has more than a few loses and Juanma got his clock cleaned by Salido). This doesn't mean that my prediction is accurate, but that is his only chance.

Sell. He is average at best, sorry buddy. He gets fucked up by Gamboa, Donaire, Juanma. He loses to Caballero, Rigo, Salido, and Marquez. He's not special and I'd put a sig bet on any of those fights.
Out of all of your picks, I would give Garcia a chance against Caballero because he just loses his focus down the stretch of the fight. Since he lost to Litzau (spell check) last November, I definitely put him on the back burner. Litzau isn't the worst fighter in the world, but those two fighting reminded me of watching kids fight in the sandbox...an Elementary school fight perhaps (back in the 90's, not nowadays...these little bastards are crazy).
