"I never go in there thinking I'm gonna this guy out or that guy our or whatever, or I'm gonna hurt him. I go in every single time I fight, I go in with the intention of just winning each round, winning the decision. That's what I prepare for. "

Mikey Garcia discusses his fight plan as he prepares to face Juan Manuel Lopez this weekend:

"I never go in there thinking I'm gonna this guy out or that guy our or whatever, or I'm gonna hurt him. I go in every single time I fight, I go in with the intention of just winning each round, winning the decision. That's what I prepare for. If I happen to connect with a good punch or hurt my opponent and I feel that I can stop him and have an early victory, then I'm gonna do it.

"I'm prepared for 12 rounds, 12 and plus rounds. If it don't go the distance, that's even better."

Mikey Garcia faces Juan Manuel Lopez this Saturday night on HBO from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, at 10:45 pm EDT. Bad Left Hook will have in-depth ongoing coverage all week, leading up to live coverage on Saturday.
