While trash talk and training videos would have been expected ahead of what is billed as ‘It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This’, Garcia received fans’ attention for a whole other reason that no one could’ve predicted.

The first part of the video showed ‘KingRy’ looking baffled while his translator translated everything that Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. said to him in Spanish.
