Reynoso Gives His Take on Ryan Garcia vs. Golden Boy Rift

Veteran trainer Eddy Reynoso, who commands the corners of fighters like Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Oscar Valdez, is also the head coach for rising lightweight star Ryan Garcia.

Reynoso helped groom Canelo to his current superstar level and he believes Garcia has the ability to reach the same mountain.

“We've worked hard for a year and a half. I think [Ryan Garcia] has learned a lot. More than anything, he is a boy who learns fast and is very disciplined. He has no vices and is a very obedient boy. I think he is going in the direction of where he wants to go. He has all the qualities to be a sports superstar. He is very mediatic, very talented. I think that if he continues with the same discipline and the same hunger, he will go wherever he wants,” Reynoso told Juan Larena of Notifight.

More recently, Garcia has been making headlines in the media due to his troubled relationship with his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions.

Through his main fighter Canelo, Reynoso has worked with Golden Boy for years.

"I think it is a difficult situation. In a team there is always a head. When the head cannot control the body, then we are already in a [bad place]. Golden Boy is the promoter and the one in charge of managing the boxer's career. So if they can't control the boxer, we're already in a bad situation,” Reynoso said.

"I think, in this case, Ryan, and I don't justify what he's saying nor am I praising him..... I think he is a boy who is young, who lacks experience. But, there are also kids who despair because things do not happen as quickly as they want them to... things don't go the way they want.

“In a team there must always be a captain, someone to handle the affairs. I think Golden Boy, here, lacked tact to handle the situation with Ryan. These are things that do not concern me, because I'm Ryan's coach. He has an attorney representing him. It's just my point of view.

"These kinds of problems [boxer vs. promoter] really aren't new to boxing. Muhammad Ali had them. Sugar Ray Robinson, Willie Pep, Rubén Olivares and Julio Cesar Chávez had them. Many have had those kinds of problems, because they are sports stars. Maybe it was a battle of egos, maybe a battle of power. But, I believe that in these times [these problems] are no longer the same as they were before. Now the boxer can defend himself, the boxer can take care of his own interests - and that's what promoters don't like."

I don’t like this type of drama. Reynoso’s dumbass shouldn’t have a say in any of that. Oscar and BHOp brought Eddie riches off Canelo. Oscar and Bhop, as non perfect as they may be, fought in wars. Oscar brought…
