Ahead of the much-hyped and anticipated fight this weekend, Ryan Garcia checked in with the Power Mornings Show and got extremely candid and personal as he discusses his influence in the game of boxing today, misconceptions about him that are played out over social media, and even addresses the beef between him and Canelo Álvarez.
Speaking with the Mornings’ host Letty, Ryan details his upcoming fight against Javier Fortuna and the experiences that have led to this moment in his boxing career. As he reflects on some of the mishaps, with the canceled match against Isaac Cruz, Garcia says he wishes he could have the same acceptance in the Mexican community as Cruz, and the fight would have served as an opportunity for many to see him in a different light, outside of his social media persona and negative narratives that have been painted of him.
Garcia goes on to share who are the Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and J, Cole of the boxing world, and speaks out about his riff with Canelo, saying, ” I hope he finds peace.”
