Canelo Alvarez And Ryan Garcia End Their Feud

Canelo Alvarez and Ryan Garcia have put their differences aside. 

Both boxers were stablemates after having trained under Eddie Reynoso. Garcia would split from Reynoso in 2021 after Canelo had expressed his concerns over the boxer’s work ethic. Ryan has been plagued by the narrative that his social media presence damages his boxing career. 

“Look, Ryan has a lot of talent. But to me in my eyes, he’s wasting a lot of time and wasting his talent. I look at him and don’t see him 100 percent dedicated and, to us, that’s a bad signal.We always remind him as a team to come to the gym, to train, and to learn because you need to be in the gym. You’re learning day-by-day, at the very minimum fighting five times a year,” Alvarez said

Garcia is preparing for the biggest fight of his career as he takes on Devin Haney for his WBC Junior Welterweight Title on April 20. There are concerns Garcia is not mentally stable. He has admitted to being high, smoking weed and drinking alcohol. The New York State Athletic Commission has also reportedly considered a mental health evaluation. Canelo advised those connected to Garcia to be there for him. 

“And as his friend, or like when we used to train together. I wouldn’t let him fight. The only thing I wish right now is that he has people to help him, because he needs it – without judging him. I don’t know what’s going on with him, but I hope he has someone. About the fight – if he was well prepared, it could be a 50/50 fight. Right now, I think it’s going to be very difficult for him,” Canelo said

Now, both boxers are on good terms. The following Instagram post shows Garcia thanking Canelo for his support. The Undisputed Super Middleweight Champion wished Ryan the best for his fight with Haney.
