Robert Garcia and Rios To Come Out With Mayweather?

By Rick Reeno

Leonard Ellerbe, CEO for Mayweather Promotions, told not to be  surprised if trainer Robert Garcia, and WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios, accompany Floyd Mayweather Jr. during his ring walk on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

As reported on Tuesday, Mayweather invited Rios and Garcia to attend Saturday's fight at the MGM Grand. Mayweather is playing up on the long-standing feud between Robert Garcia and his brother Danny Garcia, who trains Mayweather's upcoming opponent, WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz.

The feud began a few years ago when Ortiz left Robert and hired his brother Danny as his new head trainer. Robert Garcia's boxer, Rios, has been involved in a long-standing feud with Ortiz.

Robert Garcia, and Rios, are planning to attend Saturday's event - as guests of Team Mayweather.

Garcia confirmed to BoxingScene - "That would be great [to come out with Mayweather]. We are going to be there."

[quote=LeadUppercut;11138020]That would be a truly great thing, although I do not think that Mayweather should be given any credit, he is not attempting to play family councillor.[/quote] no he's not it's just if Robert gets the chance to talk to…

this probably tripped ortiz out at first but by now, hes already using it to his advantage mentally. nothing can bring this kid down right now. too strong and too focused. better than the ortiz who fought berto.
