“I saw Ryan Garcia doing his sprints this morning and his sparring. We only see what is published on social networks. Is his behavior worrying? Probably yes, but what does it look like in the gym? Derrick James is a very respectful coach. I don’t think he would let Ryan Garcia fight if he wasn’t 100%. Óscar De La Hoya should not let Ryan García enter this fight if he is not 100% physically and mentally. The family shouldn’t do it. Therefore, you have to trust the people around you to make the right decision,” he said.

“The fact that he’s still in the fight with four weeks left probably makes you think he’ll be in the fight. I don’t think Devin is too happy. Devin is training. The other night I told him: ‘You have to do what you do.’ If they retire him now between now and the fight, They should have removed it four weeks ago. So hopefully he makes it to the ring. He has good people around him who know the sport. Hopefully they make the right decision, and if the right decision is for him to fight, fantastic,” he concluded.
