Romero responded to Garcia's challenge

WBA world super lightweight champion American Rolando Romero responded to the challenge thrown at him by a popular compatriot Ryan Garcia.

“I don’t think Ryan deserves to fight me. On the other hand, our fight has been brewing for a long time. I encouraged him to fight six years ago. This is the fight that I, the fans and the journalists have been waiting for.

I'm the best pay-per-view seller, and on the other side is Princess Ryan Garcia. He wants to return in March or April. Sounds good. Hope so. “I’m still working through some issues — still recovering,” Romero was quoted as saying by Boxing Social.

Recall that on December 2, Garcia knocked out Oscar Duarte in the eighth round.
