I just watched a video with Virgil Ortiz training with Robert Garcia, and it sounds like he may have Robert Garcia as his trainer now. According to the title from an ESNews video, he is now with Robert Garcia, brother of 4 division champ Mikey Garcia.
This would be an awesome move for Virgil, as Robert is a veteran, having fought himself, and faced Floyd Mayweather more than once, along with training his brother Mikey to his current record of 38-0.
Virgil is a very promising young pro boxing prospect, who I enjoy watching. Him and Ryan Garcia are two up and comers who’s names get grouped together with who to watch in thee world of boxing, and they stopped all their opponents, besides Ryan’s last fight, which was a 10 round fight that went the distance.
This is the second fighter I have heard of recently moving to the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy. Jose Ramirez also moved to the gym, leaving Freddy Roach, in preparation for his fight with Danny O’Connor in July in Fresno, California.
There’s lots of cool stuff happening at RBGA, as Dana White recently visited the gym, and was interested in talking business with Mikey. Mikey hasn’t revealed what ut was yet, but with UFC talking about promoting boxing, I wonder if Zuffa Boxing will have Mikey as one of their fighters.
