Ryan Garcia is one of the most exciting prospects of modern-day boxing. With a record of 21 wins (18 knockouts) and 0 losses, he was en route to becoming one of the greatest modern-day boxers ever. With another world champion, Canelo Alvarez in his corner, Ryan looked unstoppable, but right when he was at the top, he had to deal with some inner demons, and he took some time off from boxing.

Canelo Alvarez is Ryan’s manager, and he believes Ryan has the potential to become one of the greatest boxers to ever walk this planet, but he lacks the discipline to do it. In an interview with Complex, he said “Look. Ryan has a lot of talent. But to me in my eyes, he’s wasting a lot of time and wasting his talent. I look at him and don’t see him 100 percent dedicated and, to us, that’s a bad signal. We always remind him as a team to come to the gym, to train, and to learn because you need to be in the gym.”

He added, “You’re learning day-by-day, and at the very minimum fighting five times a year. When I was beginning my career, I did 15 fights in one year. That’s where I was at the beginning of my career. So definitely he needs to be a little more dedicated.”
