Garcia Ready To Brawl With Mayweather in The Street

By Edward Chaykovsky

Nearly two decades ago, Robert Garcia and Floyd Mayweather Jr. were both champions in the same division. Fast forward to the present, Garcia has been retired for over a decade and Mayweather is still a world champion.

This coming September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Garcia will get his second chance to snatch away Mayweather's undefeated record. Garcia, who's been a top trainer for several years, will train Marcos Maidana for his second go at Mayweather.

Garcia worked Maidana's corner the first time around in May, with the undefeated WBC/WBA welterweight champion coming out on top with a twelve round majority decision.

During their five city press tour, Mayweather and Garcia exchanged heated words several times. During a recent interview, Mayweather said the event could be the first time where he "kicks the fighter's ass" and then "kick the trainer's ass."

Garcia says no pay-per-view event is needed, they can handle things Southern California style by meeting in the parking lot. 

“Sixteen years ago, Mayweather and I were both world champions. He mentioned that he would’ve liked to fight me, but we don’t need to do it on pay-per-view. We can take a walk out back and we’ll handle business. I am from Southern California and we know how to handle our business," Garcia said.

“I give Mayweather props for having beautiful women with him. Too bad when they are no longer on payroll they are going to walk away."

[QUOTE=GhostBlade;14772753]Once Maidana leaves this whole Mayweather circus so will Garcia and we'll probably never hear of him again. Maidana is his shining glory and after that it's pretty much over for him as a well-known trainer.[/QUOTE] maidana is even his…
