Garcia Rips Victor Ortiz, Brother Danny Over Rios Jabs

By Dennis 'dSource' Guillermo

There truly is no love lost between boxing trainers and brothers Robert and Danny Garcia. The bitter rivalry has only intensified now that both their prized pupils Brandon Rios and Victor Ortiz have become successful World Champions in their early 20's.

"I brought Victor (Ortiz) to Oxnard when Victor told me about his story about his dad and mom abandoning him when he was seven, walking the streets of Garden City (Ortiz's hometown in Kansas) without any shoes," the younger Robert said in a ES NEWS video, which was later removed, in response to statements made by his older brother Danny on another ES News video, where he said that Ortiz will knock Rios out and that Rios "doesn't know how to fight."

"If it wasn't for me, they would've never met Victor," Robert added, while questioning his older brother's ability to train boxers and claiming he is simply living his dreams off Ortiz. "Brandon is a world champion, and actually a similar style to Marcos Maidana, who made his fighter quit like a little bitch. But I think it kind of goes in the team. Because if I can recall, Danny is probably living a dream off Victor. Danny was a professional fighter; tried but failed."

Robert was the more successful of the two Garcias in terms of being a fighter, as he reached World Champion status, and has established himself as a trainer ahead of his older brother making champions out of the likes of Steven Luevano, Filipino-American fighters Brian Viloria and Nonito Donaire Jr. and the aforementioned Rios while on his watch.

Danny, on the other hand, had to juggle a day job while training his fighters at night. Ortiz's fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., on September 17th in Las Vegas, will be Danny's biggest challenge as a trainer, and his golden opportunity to outdo his younger brother.

This is definitely a brotherly feud that has boiled over to their fighters and supporters, and has divided Oxnard's boxing faithful. A clash between Ortiz and Rios in a super-fight down the road, may very well be that fight that settles the score once and for all. And boy, would that be fun to watch.

For the meantime, Garcia will be starting camp back up with Donaire in the Bay Area. Donaire is scheduled for his return fight on October 22 at the Home Depot Center in LA and is back in the US after spending a few weeks in the Philippines and Japan for his training camp.
