He is hurting Garcia's reputation as well as his marketability.
Don't take it too serious man, there have always been crazy characters in boxing...I mean, there have been much more shady people involved in this game than an overzealous father who obviously loves his son.
don't forget Morales was also a stubborn son of a b*tch when he was a youngster too, it's not like Garcia was disrespectful enough to have a brawl like Marco and Erik did.
It actually gives a lot of context to Garcia and makes him more marketable IMO...father/son combos are a classic storyline in boxing so I'm sure there will be a point where pops isnt so much a clown and he shows some real emotion and then ppl will maybe connect to what he's really about, which is his son.
whatever it takes to make his name with a new generation of boxing crowd in Philly will be great. That is a good boxing city, and he reps it to the fullest...there r ppl out there who can relate to that type of thing.
