Ryan Garcia Leaves Trainer Eddy Reynoso, Teams Up With Hall Of Famer Joe Goossen

Former WBC interim lightweight champion Ryan Garcia is making the neccessary changes ahead of his much awaited return to the squared circle and in a bold move, the undefeated boxer switched his longtime mentor Eddy Reynoso with Hall of Famer Joe Goossen as the new head trainer.

Ryan Garcia’s goal remains the same, “to become a world champion”

Last year, Ryan Garcia had defeated Luke Campbell on 2nd January to kickstart the year by winning the WBC interim lightweight belt. However, since then, Garcia has been unable to return to the ring twice this year, first pulling out against Javier Fortuna due to mental health issues in April, followed by suffering a hand injury which cancelled the JoJo Diaz fight in November.

In the wake of marking his twelve months of hiatus away from the squared circle, “King Ryan” was confirmed to be making his return against former IBO lightweight champion Emmanuel Tagoe on 9th April at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Ahead of the fight, the 23-year-old decided to switch his former trainer Eddy Reynoso, who also trains Canelo Alvarez, with renowned coach and boxing Hall of Famer Joe Goossen, who will also team up with Garcia’s father.

“I’m excited to announce that I will now be working with Hall of Fame trainer Joe Goossen, in addition to my father, Henry Garcia,” read an official statement from Garcia, “I can’t wait to pick back up where we left off, and to continue this journey together. I’ll now be working out of my own gym, Fierce King, in San Diego — and my goal remains the same: to become a world champion.”
