Promoter Oscar De La Hoya has reached out through social media to try to fix the broken relationship with junior welterweight star Ryan Garcia, who is fighting Saturday on a Golden Boy card in Houston. Oscar’s message said:
Bernard and I have spent decades putting on the biggest events in the sport – including Ryan’s last fight which generated $30 million for him.
We build champions, help them navigate their careers to the top and make them the highest paid fighters.
Ryan: keep focused on your craft instead of listening to some of your “team’s” interpretations of comments taken out of context.
Bernard and I will remain committed to taking your career to the top.
