Robert Garcia in Awe of Mayweather-Canelo Card

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

“Trainer of the Year” Robert Garcia has praised Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions headed by CEO Richard Schaefer for putting on a sensational fight card headlined by the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 14.

Garcia told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard “I honestly take my hat off to Golden Boy Promotions for doing the Danny Garcia-Lucas Mathysse fight on the undercard.”

He said “I cannot believe that fight is on the  card. This is a fight that would fill the MGM Grand by itself. They don’t need this fight to sell tickets. If they put it on the same day at the Mandalay Bay,  Golden Boy would have made money because both places would  be filled up.”

Garcia figured that Golden Boy Promotions would make a lot of money on the Mayweather-Alvarez fight and therefore could afford to feature Garcia vs Mathysse adding “this is good for boxing with  good undercard fights.”

He said Mayweather vs Alvarez “is a fight nobody can miss and I can’t wait for it to happen.”

The trainer said Canelo “is a very strong, big guy and it wont be easy for Mayweather . He cannot exchange punches with Canelo, he has to outbox him” which is what he believes Mayweather will do.

Garcia disclosed that he “had a hard time getting tickets but I booked a room at the MGM Grand. He said  Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire “ invited me to watch it on a big screen at his house” and its an offer he may eventually accept.

Closet Fan! HAHAHAHAHAHA, so true. Great move to put Garcia vs Matthysse on the card. If your still *****ing about this card, you're a HATER. Lets put pressure on the promoters about stacking the rest of the card this year.…

[QUOTE=J The UnBiased;13585518]But I guarantee, YOU will be glued to the screen when Floyd and Canelo step in the ring. You can try and try to knock Floyd for actually knowing how to box, but you won't stop watching him.…
