World champion WBO lightweight champion Ray Beltran said that he wants to fight with Mikey Garcia, while Vasily Lomachenko is recovering from surgery on his shoulder.

"We were very glad that we could fight with Lomachenko, I wanted to meet him in the ring. I know that I'm in very difficult weight right now.

I think Garcia is the strongest of champions in lightweight, I want to fight him. I was looking for big names, but previously no one wanted to fight me. Now I'm a champion and the situation has changed.

I still do not know with whom I will hold the first defense of the title. But I want the opponent to be of high quality, we will show a good champion.

Preparations for the battle already begins, I will spend 12 weeks in the training hall Wild Card in Hollywood, "Beltran said.
