Although Henry Cejudo has retired from active competition, he hasn’t let go of his beef with the WBC Silver lightweight champion, Ryan Garcia.
For quite a while, Cejudo has talked about crossing over to boxing and facing off against Ryan Garcia. Previously, Cejudo called Gracia an “Oscar De La Hoya wannabe.” With a pro record of 20-0, Garcia is unhappy with Cejuo and wants to take on the former Arizona state Copper Gloves winner.
“Chicken Little, he got very disrespectful in my honest opinion,” Garcia told TMZ in March. “I came at him in a respectful way but he came at me in a disrespectful way so, in that regard, that needs to be handled. I haven’t found an opponent for July 4th but I feel like we can make that happen if he really wants that work.”
Recently, Ryan Garcia showed off his insane hand speed in a training video on Twitter.
Cejudo’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz responded with, “@HenryCejudo 🔥🔥.”
Cejudo followed up and said “Easy money 💰.”
Cejudo is widely regarded as the Greatest Combat Sports Athlete of All Time. He has defeated high-level competition throughout his career. “Triple C” conquered Demetrious Johnson to win the flyweight belt in 2018. He then defended his flyweight title against one of the best bantamweights of all time, TJ Dillashaw.
His legacy does not end there. Cejudo moved up a weight class to claim the bantamweight strap against Marlon Moraes. In his last match, he defeated the greatest bantamweight of all-time – Dominick Cruz and announced his retirement.
While these achievements are incredible in the octagon, they do not mean much inside a boxing ring. However, Cejudo’s manager begs to differ.
Similarly, if Gracia decides to take on Cejudo in the octagon, the results might not favor the boxer.
