Bob Arum: Mikey Garcia-Juan Carlos Burgos ‘done’ for Jan. 25

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum said that a deal is being finalized for a bout between WBO junior lightweight titleholder Mikey Garcia and respected two-time title challenger Juan Carlos Burgos.

The bout, said Arum on Wednesday, will happen on Jan. 25 at New York’s Madison Square Garden on HBO.

“That is done for Madison Square Garden,” said Arum. “The contracts were sent out today.”

Garcia (33-0, 28 knockouts) is coming off an eighth-round knockout of Roman “Rocky” Martinez last month that earned him the belt and represented his 10th stoppage victory over the course of his past 11 fights.

It was the second major title in a second weight class for Garcia, who earned THE RING and WBO featherweight titles in January by beating Orlando Salido, whom he dropped four times en route to an eight-round technical decision.

Garcia followed that victory up with a fourth-round knockout of ex-beltholder Juan Manuel Lopez in June, and could next face Burgos, who battled Martinez to a split-draw on the Garcia-Salido card.

Arum said Philadelphia heavyweight prospect Bryant Jennings (17-0, 9 KOs), who recently signed with Gary Shaw and Antonio Leonard, will in the co-featured bout to Garcia-Burgos.

Also expected to be on the card are light heavyweight Sean Monaghan (19-0, 12 KOs), super middleweight Jessie Hart (11-0, 10 KOs) and Puerto Rican lightweight Felix Verdejo (9-0, 6 KOs), according to Arum.
