Mikey Garcia gets release from Top Rank?

Mikey Garcia could be back in the ring anytime soon. It seemed the undefeated super featherweight titlist managed to end up promotional conflict with Bob Arum's Top Rank Promotions.

Garcia posted on Twitter on Wednesday with a hashtag #free #theythrewinthetowel #imcomingback with a photograph of an unlocked handcuff.

Garcia has been on the sideline after winning and defending his super featherweight title against Juan Carlos Burgos on 25th January 2014. But the following May, Garcia filed a lawsuit against Top Rank and wanted to get out of their promotional agreement.

The problem started when Garcia was scheduled to fight Yuriorkis Gamboa but reportedly demand 'astronomical numbers' that nobody is willing to pay according to Arum.

"I just don't know what they are up to. It's stupid the whole thing. I mean, here he wants to come back and he wants to fight and as far as I've heard he's asking for astronomical numbers that nobody is willing to pay," said Arum.
