Guillermo Rigondeaux And Mikey Garcia Engage In An Online War Of Words

A rivalry has been brewing between Yuriorkis Gamboa and Mikey Garcia for some time now and their ongoing beef has been seen publicly with other members from Cuba joining in after remarks were made Garcia about Cuban fighters.

One of the recent fighters to join in on speaking against Garcia is Cuban world champion Guillermo Ringondeaux.

“When a man generalises a country with offenses it is because he is envious of its people. To be more clear, A Cuban KO’d your brother,” said Rigondeaux to Garcia via Twitter.

“It’s not against the country but Cuban boxers talk too much,” Garcia responded.

“Fight Yuriorkis Gamboa to see who the talker is and for the world to see who is better,” said Rigondeaux.

Rigondeaux’s promoter Caribe Promotions took shots at Garcia earlier today stating that Robert Garcia was KO’d by a Cuban fighter as well.

    Too bad the Garcia-Gamboa fight appears to be a non-starter. I was looking forward to that one. It would have been a great matchup which could have catapulted the winner to Greatness. I’m Cuban born, and therefore somewhat biased in favor of Cuban fighters, but I could only speculate on the outcome of such a matchup. Mikey Garcia is the real thing. Gamboa is an incredible talent when he’s on his game. He’s been idle for a while, however, and did not look particularly good in his previous win. Mikey, on the other hand, has been dominant, and getting better. Great counter puncher, steady and mature, patient, with good timing and power. The outcome, in my opinion, depended on Gamboa’s conditioning. At his best, I think Gamboa can beat Garcia. He’s that talented. But if he shows the ring rust and poor timing as in his previous fight, then I think he would be in trouble against Garcia. Rigondeaux, on the other hand, can beat both of them. Despite the unlikely scenario of Rigo going up to 130lbs, I think he would run roughshod over every fighter beween 122lbs-130lbs. He will be considered one of the all time greats. I have rarely seen a fighter with such balance, timing and deceptive power as Rigondeaux. Many consider him boring because as soon as his opponents feel his power, and realize what they are up against, they clam up. They stop throwing. Who can blame them?
