From Dan Ambrose: Trainer Robert Garcia was asked this week whether he’ll throw in the towel if his fighter Mikey Garcia starts getting worked over by Errol Spence Jr. in their fight on March 16 at AT&T Stadium at Arlington, Texas. Robert says he’ll step up to end the fight when it gets out of hand, just as he would for any of his fighters.
The fight is regarded as a crazy man for Mikey to be carrying, as he zero experience at welterweight, and he looked poor and vulnerable when he battled former IBF light welterweight champion Sergey Lipinets last March. Mikey beat Lipinets, but he required a ton of punishment . After the fight, Mikey looked like the failure with his bloody, bloated face.
The much smaller Garcia, 31, is moving up two weight classes to battle International Boxing Federation welterweight champion Spence due to his belt.
This is really a fight that many of the fans aren’t really considering Garcia as with a possibility of pulling an upset. The main thing that the fans are talking about is whether Mikey will go the full 12 rounds in carrying barbarous punishment. However, Robert Garcia might halt the fight if it resembles his brother Mikey doesn’t even stand the opportunity and can be just soaking up punishment.
Spence vs. Garcia will soon be televised on FOX Sports pay per view on Saturday, March 16.
“We& & rsquo;re not even thinking about that however I am an experienced boxing trainer and I’ve done it before,” Robert G. thought to Fighthub about him potentially stepping in to halt the fight on March 16 when it looks like Mikey is carrying a shellacking at the hands of the 28-year-old Spence. “I presume with some of my fighters, maybe not simply Mikey, due to his ’s my buddy, but some of my fighters, even if I find that one of my fighters would be getting hurt and there’s no possibility of him winning the fight, ofcourse I’m definitely going to prevent my fighter,” Robert G. said.
We’ve seen Robert G. step in to rescue Mikey in his fight against Orlando Salido at January 2018. Mikey was succeeding in the first five rounds against Salido in falling him four times, however the fight shifted hands by the 7th. Mikey was carrying punishment of a sudden, appearing tired, with no more dominating like he had been. Robert subsequently stepped in and had the fight halted after Mikey suffered a broken nose at the 8th from a battle of minds. Robert told that the congregation that Mikey’s broken nose has been too much of a challenge for the fight to be allowed to keep on. However, Salido remarked that he had a broken nose as well, plus he didn’t quit.
The way that the Robert G. stepped in to end the fight if his brother Mikey started to find the worst of it from Salido, it looked to some like he was bailing him out. When we begin to see the exact identical scenario on March 16it’s possible that Mikey will push hard from the initial six months to build up all types of guide, and once the fight extends in to the second half of the bout, we can visit Robert pull him out with an injury of a few forms, perhaps a cut or busted nose. The fight would subsequently proceed to the scorecards like the Mikey-Salido fight did, and we could potentially see a nasty technical decision just like in that fight. A good deal of boxing fans would be angry, as these were Robert stopping the Mikey vs. Salido fight when his brother was beginning to get beaten up, however there wouldn’t even be anything they could do about that.
“I’ve done it before. It’s nothing new and some other experienced trainer have to do stuff like that because of his fighter,” Robert said concerning the way he’s ceased fights before once his fighters were getting worked over.
Obviously, Robert ceased fights before once his fighters have begun getting the worst of it. We saw that at Mikey’so fight with Salido. All of a sudden, Robert pulled Mikey outside when he got tired, and has been getting worked by Salido. Yeah, Mikey had a sinus injury, but did Salido, and he wished to continue fighting. Salido wasn’t pleased with how the referee allowed Mikey to get away with shoving him that the entire fight. Mikey was holding his left arm exit infront of himand deploying it to push to maintain Salido from getting close him to land shots. Thatrsquo;therefore maybe not legal whatsoever, however the referee stood and watched without the addressing it. Salido was displeased with the way Mikey maintained pushing him that the entire fight to prevent him away from getting close enough to land. However, by the 7th, Salido was able to work his way beyond Mikey’s outstretched left hand to land human body shots. This ’s if Mikey started gassing and looking awful. Robert had to have understood that Mikey was evaporating fast. Even the stoppage at the conclusion of the 8th round certainly saved Mikey from what will be a torturous final four weeks of the fight. With how the prime Salido was coming on, a stoppage of how all Mikey was not out of the question. Robert choosing to halt the fight due to Mikey’s broken nose retained Salido from having the capacity to fully down him and stop him.
“You know, ” I ’m not saying & ’s exactly what we& & rsquo;re looking at, which & & rsquo;s the policy for Mikey,” Robert said in continued to talk about the chance of him throwing from the towel of surrender when it looks like Mikey is taking a beating from Spence. “& We ’re-planning on winning. And ’s only one thing we’re training to get we’r e training to acquire. But some of my fighters get hurt and does not have any chance, then ofcourse I’theres gonna stop the fight.
The question is will Robert throw in the towel to rescue his brother Mikey or will he allow it to go on, expecting that he can muster against Spence. A few of Robert’s fighters were allowed to take punishment stopping the fight. Brandon Rios and also Antonio Margarito punishment without Robert stopping the struggle. With Mikey being his brother, will soon Robert G let him take punishment from Spence or will he throw the towel as soon as he starts getting worked over. Having seen the Garcia vs. Salido struggle it’so hard to imagine there is a plan for Mikey to build up a tiny lead from the initial six months until he bows out with an injury by the 7th. Hopefully this ’therefore definitely not going to be the case, however we’t found it earlier.
Robert G says he would have preferred to see Mikey gain experience at welterweight until he faced Spence. Whether adventure would help Mikey or not could be the big question. It would be contingent on the level of resistance that Mikey was put in with. When he had been fed with a fringe contender from the bottom of the best 1-5 such as Mikael Zewski, Samuel Vargas, Conor Benn, Rico Muller or even Frank Rojas, then it wouldn’t even help Mikey one piece get ready for Spence at 147. The only way Mikey is helped is whether he battled someone good such as Danny Garcia, Egidijus Kavaliauskas, Josh Kelly or even Daniyar Yeleussinov. Those guys would give Mikey a run for his money, and maybe even overcome him. Yeleussinov would be a nightmare for Mikey to fight, however if he overcome himhe would definitely be ready to fight Spence. I’m not saying Mikey would beat Spence, but he would at least have some working experience at 147 that he could lean on for the fight. How things are now, Mikey is going in to the fight with Spence after a win over the bone-thin Robert Easter Jr along with an grueling fight Sergey Lipinets. Neither of those fights had been the kind of contests that may get Mikey ready for what’so available for him if he gets within the ring with Spence.
“We’d ’ve wanted him to do that. That has been exactly what, myself and my dad, were attempting to convince him to do but he chose,” Robert said concerning wanting Mikey to possess experience at welterweight before facing Spence. He would like to challenge himself to fight with the best welterweight outside there.
