Mikey Garcia returns on July 30
- Updated: June 26, 2016
It was formally announced last night during the CBS telecast of Thurman vs. Porter that former two-division titlist Mikey Garcia (34-0, 28 KOs) would be returning to the ring on July 30 against Elio Rojas (24-2, 14 KOs).
The fight will be televised by Showtime from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The fight will serve as the co-feature to the featherweight title fight between Leo Santa Cruz and Carl Frampton.
Garcia has been out of action for 2.5 years, following a bitter split with Top Rank, whom he was fighting to get out of his contract with.
