Garcia To Roach: I Guess This Drunk Knows About Boxing

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

More than likely, trainer Robert Garcia had a big smile on his face when he jabbed back at fellow coach, Freddie Roach.

Last night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Roach's fighter Ruslan Provodnikov lost his WBO junior welterweight championship, by way of a split decision, to undefeated challenger Chris Algieri.

In several pre-fight interviews, Garcia gave Algieri a good shot of unseating the heavily favored champion from Siberia. In the past, Algieri spent time in Garcia's gym located in Oxnard, California.

Roach, who on several occasions in the past traded words with the Oxnard trainer, took offense to Garcia's analysis that Algieri could pull off a big upset.

"If any of his guys want it after this - they can line up too. What the f*** does he know about boxing? Who is he.....drunk," Roach told BoxingScene.com in a video interview several days before the fight.

"[Marcos] Maidana gave Mayweather a fight for four rounds and then Mayweather took over. Then his other boy was a punching bag for my guy, Manny Pacquiao. I'm not impressed by either one. We'll fight either one of them if they want to fight us in the next fight."

Garcia shot back, following Algieri's big victory.

"I guess this drunk does know a little about boxing, Freddie Roach."

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;14664893]Robert Garcia 1, Freddie Roach 0. Maidana did better against Floyd than Provodnikov did against Algieri.[/QUOTE] Absolutely not. Prod landed more than Maidana did. He also hurt his opponent.. Mayweather hurt Maidana not the other way around.
