Garcia has visibly been unhappy with the response by his team to his loss to Gervonta Davis. In the post-fight presser, Garcia was all alone as De La Hoya and his former trainer, Joe Gossen, were absent.
While De La Hoya argues that the reason for his absence was due to some death threats, the fact of the matter is that Garcia was vocal about receiving more support from Davis’ team than his own.
And since that moment, things have not gotten any easier. Following his move up to 140 lbs, there has been much speculation over Garcia’s next opponent.
Garcia made his preferences clear, naming Rolly Romero, Isaac Cruz, or Teofimo Lopez. Those sentiments appeared to have been ignored as De La Hoya talked up the potential for Garcia to face Manny Pacquiao.
And now it has all come to a head with De La Hoya and Garcia venting their frustrations.
“Wtf @RyanGarcia it’s been almost two months and [you’re] still crying about the post presser. The blame for your loss is on YOU and your “advisor” Lupe (Guadalupe Valencia).
“He is the only one who pushed you to accept that INSANE rehydration clause and THAT is the reason you lost. Man up. Own that.
“Also, you keep saying “tanks team offered more support for you” blah blah blah. Bro they SET YOU UP TO LOSE with that rehydration clause and most importantly.
“AL HAYMON DIDNT EVEN SHOW UP THE ENTIRE WEEK. Actually, he NEVER shows up. How’s that for “support,” De La Hoya
“Okay buddy, you got it all figured out. Tired of you disrespecting my whole career and you think [none] of it matters.
“Loyalty and common sense is lost in your head. Stop treating people that way and think they will just accept it,” Garcia
Garcia is tied up to Golden Boy Promotions until 2026. However, based on the following comments, his future with the promotional outfit may be short-lived.
De La Hoya’s recent meeting with Rolly Romero did not sit well with Garcia, given that he could be his future opponent.
“You know I’m about to fight this guy And you go act buddy buddy with him. You don’t care about your fighters. Really tired of this fake act!! STOP THE CAP BE REAL FOR ONCE MAN.
“I can respect you more if you just told me the truth, you’re in it for the cash. No love lost,” Garcia
