Mayweather and Ryan Garcia Extend Training Bond What's Next for the Rising Star?
Floyd Mayweather and Ryan Garcia have announced an extension of their collaboration into 2024, with recent footage capturing the duo training together in Las Vegas. The video, shared by Inside Fighting’s Andrew Capucetti, showcases the Hall of Famer and Garcia engaged in late-night training sessions, highlighting their camaraderie and shared enthusiasm for the sport.
Garcia, known for his rapid hands, explosive fighting style, and substantial social media following, remains one of boxing’s most prominent figures. In 2023, his bout against Gervonta Davis became the best-selling combat sports event of the year, despite Garcia facing defeat due to a body shot in the seventh round. However, he redeemed himself with an eighth-round knockout victory over Oscar Duarte later in the year.
While Garcia is affiliated with Golden Boy Promotions, with a reported 1-2 years remaining on his contract, public disagreements between the fighter and Oscar de la Hoya, the founder of Golden Boy Promotions, have surfaced.
Mayweather expressed interest in working with Garcia under his promotions, expressing admiration for Garcia’s talent and hinting at a potential collaboration should Garcia become a free agent. Despite Mayweather’s open stance, he clarified the importance of contractual obligations and avoiding legal disputes.
Garcia’s social media interactions further fueled speculation about his future moves, with discussions linking him to Devin Haney, the 25-year-old super lightweight champion following his recent WBC title win over Regis Prograis. Haney, seemingly undeterred by Garcia’s association with Mayweather, engaged in a private message exchange, asserting independence from Mayweather’s influence.
As Garcia’s next move in the boxing world remains uncertain, the collaboration extension with Mayweather hints at potential shifts in Garcia’s career trajectory, raising curiosity among fans and pundits about the rising star’s future choices.
