Unbeaten WBC Lightweight Champion Mikey Garcia (36-0-30), just prior to his nasty knockout win over Dejan Zlaticacin (22-1) last night, offered his prognosis for May's superfight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Canelo Alvarez.

"I think that is a good fight for the fans," Garcia told BoxingScene.com.

"Not the fight that people want to see Canelo in but it is still a good fight."

"I think Chavez, if he trains well like I hope he does, has a really good chance."

"He is a big guy, a strong guy," said Garcia.

"I think it is a close fight. If Chavez doesn't train or isn't motivated then I think Canelo has the advantage," Garcia told BoxingScene.com.

Some question Chavez's focus and discipline while others insist he's already a shot fighter, compliments of the beating he took by Sergio Martinez. Moreover, Chavez has had only 6 fights in the last 4 1/2 years and hasn't scored a knockout since Summer 2012 (Andy Lee).

Nevertheless, Garcia thinks a motivated Chavez pulls off the upset.

-----------------------------------

------------------------------------

"You would think he would want (to train hard) and I hope he does. I like Chavez and if he trains [hard]... I give him a very good chance of winning," added the boxing sensation.

Of note, his older brother and trainer, Roberto Garcia, also predicts a Chavez Jr upset.

Do they know something many in boxing don't?
