Ryan Garcia will no longer be coached by Joe Goosen

Posted 05/01/2023

Ryan Garcia may not have hurt when he fought Gervonta Davis in a superfight two weekends ago, but he ended up losing by knockout thanks to a perfectly placed shot to the liver from Davis. Such things tend to have repercussions. It wasn’t surprising, then, when news broke on Monday that Garcia had decided to part ways with legendary coach Joe Goosen. The two men had been together for about a year. Although Garcia is known as a very talented fighter who is fast and tough, there is no question that Davis proved to be the more skilled of the two men.

This didn’t come as a huge shock to many, but the loss to Davis clearly motivated Garcia to look elsewhere to find a coach that works well for him. It stands to reason that the man has some stylistic growth to do if he is to become a top-level fighter. Whether or not a move to a new coach will improve Garcia’s ring remains to be seen. Sometimes the problem is the fighter. Other times, however, a new coach can really make a difference. Freddie Roach and Emanuel Steward did wonders for Manny Pacquiao and Wladimir Klitschko, after all. There is, however, no magic wand to alter a fighter’s fortunes in the ring.

Also, this is the second high-profile coach Garcia has walked away from. Previously he worked with Eddie Reynoso, the esteemed trainer of Canelo Alvarez. Garcia, however, will remain a very popular fighter no matter who chooses to train him. However, Garcia has to get back to his winning ways if he is to remain hugely popular, so finding a proper trainer is important. So is Garcia’s willingness to listen and learn from that coach. Garcia is a young man, so time is on his side. Time, however, has a way of moving quickly.
