Eddy Reynoso Open to Training Ryan Garcia Once Again
Ryan Garcia (23-1, 19 KOs) was once under the tutelage of trainer Eddy Reynoso. Could we see a reunion between the two? According to Reynoso, it’s a definite possibility.
Garcia is still stinging from the first defeat of his pro career – a seventh-round stoppage defeat to Gervonta “Tank” Davis on April 22. Following that setback, Garcia has decided that some changes are necessary. He decided to split from trainer Joe Goosen. The word on the street is that Garcia has reached out to Reynoso in hopes of possibly working together again.
BRINGING THE BAND BACK TOGETHER?
Reynoso is currently in Guadalajara, Mexico with undisputed super middleweight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez as he will defend his titles against John Ryder. During an interview with the media outlet Fino Boxing, Reynoso was asked if he was open to bringing Garcia back into the fold.
(Translated from Spanish) “Yes, doors are open. I’m a professional. It’s my job to prepare fighters to battle, and I will train any fighter. We’ll just have to take notes and make sure it’s beneficial for both.”
Garcia parted ways with Reynoso in February 2022. The issue seemed to be that Garcia was unwilling to fully commit to the training methods of Reynoso. He is known as a disciplinarian who pushes his fighters hard.
Reynoso stresses that his fighters are dedicated, fundamentally sound, and in supreme physical condition. The results have paid off in the who he’s trained, such as Alvarez, two-division champion Oscar Valdez and reigning WBC flyweight champion Julio Cesar Martinez.
One of the chief complaints about Garcia’s fighting style is that he’s one-dimensional – totally dependent on his left hook. The native of Los Angeles, California has never worked on other facets of his game to become a complete fighter. Humbled from the loss to Davis, now could be the perfect time for him to run it back with the Reynoso.
