Ruben Guerrero: Angel Garcia is a Punk, He Ain't Sh*t

By Rick Reeno

The always colorful Ruben Guerrero, father and trainer of former champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero, wants to get his son in the ring with Danny Garcia (28-0, 16KOs), the current WBO/WBA 140-pound champion.

Since revealing his intention of moving up to the welterweight division, Garcia's name has been mentioned as a possible opponent for just about everyone at 147-pounds, including both Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

"Danny Garcia is the kind of fighter who likes to fight. He always comes to fight and that's the kind of opponents that we like. I give him a lot of credit because he always comes to fight. That's a real fighter right there, because he likes to stand in front and fight," Ruben told BoxingScene.com.

While Danny is pretty quiet and stays away from verbal battles, his father and trainer, Angel Garcia, is one of the more outspoken and controversial personalities in boxing. Ruben would love to get the opportunity to match verbal wits, and possibly fists, with Angel. 

Ruben is no stranger to controversy, as he nearly traded punches with trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. on at least a half dozen occasions in the last year. Their rivalry stems from the May 2013 encounter between their sons.

"Angel is a punk. He was all over my nuts at Robert's fight. Angel ain't sh*t. I'll punk that guy like I did Mayweather. Angel ain't nothing. I already punked him. I would hurt that poor guy. If he's going to face me, he better be ready because I don't tolerate sh*t from anyone. Angel is nothing, I'm a real guy from the street. I'm from a real town where there are nothing but barrios. I grew up tough. He just acts tough, he's just a guy with a big mouth," Ruben said.

Robert returns to the ring, for the first time since the decision loss to Mayweather, on June 21 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. He will face Yoshihiro Kamegai (24-1-1, 21KOs) of Japan as part of Showtime televised tripleheader.

[QUOTE=STREET CLEANER;14646971]This is one of those fights that the build up with the camps might be better than the fight itself. The fight would be a hug fest. Ruben does a very poor imitation of a Cholo tough guy. His…

The wrong thing about this is that the fighters are the nicer guys

They both got something in common though, families battling cancer and pulling through. Ruben should bring that miracle up.
