A new chapter opened in the battle of declarations between Saúl El Canelo Álvarez and Ryan García, but now with a new character, the historic Manny Pacquiao.

After Rya García left the Canelo Team and trainer Eddy Reynoso earlier this year, both boxers have been in charge of releasing statements to belittle their careers.

However, now it was a statement by Manny Pacquiao that returned this rivalry to the boxing plane.

In an interview for Sport-Journal, Pacquiao was asked if he likes El Canelo Álvarez. The Filipino boxer’s response was simple.

{“quote”:”“Canelo is a good boxer”.”}

However, when asked who his favorite boxer is today, Pacquiao did not hesitate to mention Mexican-American Ryan Garcia.

{“quote”:”“My favorite boxer now is young (Ryan) Garcia, and also Inoue, from Japan. I watch his fights and Nonito Donaire’s.”}

How Mexican is Ryan Garcia?

“The New Golden Boy”, as Ryan García is now called, always enters the ring with the Mexican flag, but also with the United States. However, he does not speak Spanish.

Legally he is a US citizen, he was born on August 8, 1998 in California, United States, but his ancestry is Mexican.

In an interview, his parents, Henry and Lisa García, explained that they were born in New Mexico, but their relatives arrived there when it was still part of the United Mexican States, that is, the border made them part of the American Union.
