  • ‘I believe Garcia picked the right trainer’: DLH likes James as Garcia’s lead trainer

During this interview with Fight Hub TV, Golden Boy promoter Oscar De La Hoya explains why he thinks Ryan Garcia made a good choice in hiring Derrick James as his new lead trainer and why he proposed he look towards a fight against Manny Pacquiao. Garcia has openly said he doesn’t have interest in a Pacquiao fight, but De La Hoya still thinks it could be the biggest fight out there for both men. Check out some of what he had to say below. De La Hoya on Garcia’s recent change in trainer “I haven’t talked to him at all about the trainer but he made the right choice. I think [James] is an excellent trainer. I think that a trainer’s there to discipline you, a trainer’s there to keep you in line, to teach you, to give you that game plan, to better your skills, and I believe he picked the right trainer.” On whether or not the trainer or the fighter makes the difference in their performance “From a fighter who’s had — I think I’ve had seven trainers in my whole career, and I had the best of the best. I’ve had trainers who listen to me, I’ve had trainers that I have to listen to, I’ve had disciplinary trainers, I’ve had trainers who are just at ease. My best trainer that I’ve ever had was Floyd Mayweather Sr because he would literally wake me up at 5am in the morning to go run when I didn’t want to wake up. He would throw buckets of water at me to wake me up when I was lazy. “So a trainer makes the fighter. A trainer gives you the discipline, gives you the instructions, teaches you the game plan and it’s repetition. So if you have a fighter who’s not listening or respecting the trainer, then you’re not learning, you’re not growing as a fighter. You need a trainer who’s gonna be on your ass. And that’s the bottom line. “And my best two trainers, I have to say I forgot The Professor who trained me for the Chavez fight, he was on my ass. And when I didn’t want to wake up, when I didn’t want to spar, when I didn’t want to train, he would be on my ass and that’s exactly how I won this fight.” On why he mentioned Pacquiao as being a good opponent for Garcia “The reason why we can now talk about it and it’s a viable option is that Manny Pacquiao was just victorious in a suit he was involved in, which obviously didn’t allow him to fight in the states. So now that he’s free to do so, it’s a very real option for both guys because imagine a Ryan Garcia vs Manny Pacquiao fight, at a catchweight depending on what that weight is, can be the biggest fight for both guys.”

  • ‘This judge is crazy’: Davis sounds off on being sent to jail
    by Wil Esco on June 5, 2023 at 1:38 pm

    Gervonta Davis says the judge in his case is crazy. | Photo by Candice Ward/Getty ImagesGervonta Davis’ home detention sentence was cut short after a judge decided he didn’t comply and ordered him to spend the remainder of his time in jail. A few days ago it was reported that Gervonta Davis was ordered to spend the rest of his home detention sentence in jail after no complying with the strict orders of the judge in his case. Davis has now come out to publicly ridicule the judge who decided he should spend the rest of his sentence behind bars, calling the judge a crazy piece of work. “This judge is crazy, bro” Davis would say though a jailhouse phone call. “Basically I bought a property. I did everything in my power to listen to my lawyers [you have 60 seconds remaining]...I listened to everybody to a T. She’s mad that I bought a property, that’s why I’m sitting in jail. “She said that she wanted me to be in an apartment, a one-bed apartment, and I couldn’t even take that. She wanted me to stay in a one-bed apartment ‘cause I didn’t have my kids, nothing, come visit me and things like that. I just want to spread light on this situation because I feel as though she’s taking advantage of me [you have 30 seconds remaining]. “I don’t know if she’s a bad judge or not but I think what she’s doing right now is not right. I feel like I need to shed light on this situation [line disconnects].” Davis is most recently coming off a stoppage win over Ryan Garcia in late April and will have plenty of big opportunities awaiting him once he returns to the ring.
