Ryan Garcia has suddenly gone quiet without explaining a fight that was supposed to be happening next for him against Manny Pacquiao.
Up until a week ago, the unbeaten lightweight contender King Ryan (21-0, 18 KOs) was talking nonstop about how he was going to have a “real fight” against the 42-year-old Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs), but now he’s not saying anything at all.
It’ll be interesting to see if Ryan shows some maturity by revealing why the fight with Pacquiao isn’t happening rather than just staying quiet, hoping fans will forget.
It’ll look bad on Ryan’s part if he blames his promoter Oscar De La Hoya, for why the fight with Manny isn’t going down.
Even if one of Ryan’s promoters are the ones that put their foot down and saying the fight can’t happen, Ryan should do the noble by taking responsibility himself. Ryan would look better in the public’s eyes if he falls on the sword rather than letting his promoters take the blame.
Is it too much for Ryan to tell the media that the fight isn’t going to happen? The way that Ryan abruptly stopped talking about the fight with Pacquiao strikes one as odd.
