Boxing sensation Ryan Garcia has also offered his two cents on the result. However, he didn’t trash ‘The Notorious’ one. Instead, Ryan Garcia appeared surprised.

Garcia said, “The thing about fighting is the truth always comes out, Whether you put in the work and time, whether you have been keeping your body right. The truth always comes out.”

A few days ago, Garcia was looking to butt heads against Conor McGregor somewhere down the line. Interestingly, he wanted to face McGregor in an MMA bout.
