“I mean everybody loses. Serena Williams loses, Cristiano loses.” – Ryan Garcia

Speaking to Sky Sports, Ryan Garcia was quoted as saying, “I even wrote on Twitter the other day. In boxing, opinion and narratives change from fight to fight. What I mean by that is don’t pay attention to what people say, especially in boxing, it’s very unfair if you think about it.

You’ve got the UFC where if you lose, you showed up, right? You get in there, and you get respect. I don’t know what happened to the boxing fans, but they definitely have lost respect for people that lose.

He also added that a lot of notable athletes don’t perform well, but come back stronger, going on to say that, it is not the case with boxers. “I mean everybody loses, Serena Williams loses, [Cristiano] Ronaldo has lost before. You see legends lose, it’s not the end of the world, you can come back and win and get better. I definitely think it’s unfair to the boxers,” Garcia said.
