“I’d like to have the rematch [with Garcia]. I think it would be a good fight for me and for the fans, so we’re trying to make it materialize. At the moment, our #1 priority is making a fight with Manny Pacquiao happen, so hopefully I’ll be fighting in December and then Pacquiao next May.”
“We’ve spoken to a few potential opponents for December, but a rematch with Garcia around then would be great. It’s still 14 weeks away so it’s a possibility.”
