“It would be a good fight if Ryan shows up and, let’s say, all these other circus acts wouldn’t have happened. I don’t think it would have been (an easy fight) for Devin. But that’s what I always thought was the problem with Ryan Garcia; “He has all the ability, but he doesn’t have the heart or the mental game to really be where he should be, and he’s just showing it,” he said.

“I mean, it would be a bit of a surprise if it (goes ahead). You know what I mean? Then Ryan says that he will be off Instagram until the fight. It’s all those weird things. I don’t know if it’s going to happen. Devin (will win). Devin gets better and better. Like Canelo (Álvarez), he works hard. He will continue working. He is hungry right now,” add.
