Boxing prodigy and former WBC interim lightweight champion Ryan Garcia is back to action after a 14-month layoff due to physical and mental reasons. Garcia however, is bringing himself back into the ring without the cornering of coach Eddy Reynoso and companionship of boxing’s pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez.

Garcia is returning to the ring on April 9, 2022, to fight Emmanuel Tagoe from Ghana, at Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas, the USA. Garcia, an undefeated boxer, last fought in January 2021 when defeated Olympic champion Luke Cambell via body shot knockout. Garcia has a lot to prove now that his elite competitors Gervonta Davis, Devin Heney, Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos Jr. are already active in the competition.

Ryan Garcia just focused on his fight against Emmanuel Tagoe, doesn’t care about Canelo Alvarez’s criticism anymore

In an interview at MMA Fighting’s THE MMA HOUR with Ariel Helwani, Garcia talks about his upcoming fight, parting ways with Team Canelo [duet of Canelo Alvarez and his coach Eddy Reynoso], and also, answered to if Alvarez knew under what circumstances Garcia wasn’t training, then why did he criticize Garcia for lack of training regime and competition.

I was more confused and shocked because I know he’s not oblivious and he understands a lot of things, Garcia said. “So I didn’t quite understand why he would say that, but I don’t really care anymore.

“No, I know that I’m insane, I’m a maniac from how I work and how I’ve always worked throughout my whole career,” Garcia said. “So none of that affected me. It was just kind of shocking because he knows what I was going through so there was the reason why I wasn’t at the gym and that’s why I decided to take a break from everything and make sure I get myself right…

It had nothing to do with my work ethic and you’re going to see that April 9, how hard I actually work. You’ve seen my body, you’ve seen how I fight, you don’t get like that by not working hard, that’s for sure,” said Garcia. [h/t MMA Fighting]

What do you make of Garcia justifying his stance on his training and his reaction to Alvarez’s criticism? Who do you think is right? Also, who do you think wins between Alvarez and his upcoming opponent Dmitry Bivol and who wins between Garcia and his upcoming opponent Emmanuel Tagoe?
