Ryan García vs Manny Pacquiao, the fight that did not take place
After several weeks of negotiations, the fight between Ryan and Manny could not be specified, and in February of this 2021, he was the member of the Canelo Team who confirmed that the battle had fallen.
Garcia at that time he explained that it was the demands of the Pac-man those that prevented reaching an agreement to carry out the lawsuit.
“Everything is fine, everything is love, man. It wasn’t my fault (the ‘Pac-Man’ match was canceled). I always say yes to everything. If any fight falls, it is on the opposite side ”, he pointed out to Fight Hub TV.
“I wanted to fight him (Pacquiao). He wanted to fight me too, but everything is fine. Just go and live the life you want to live. If you want to fight me, if you want to fight Terence, do what you want. And he will do what he wants, “he said.
