father son combinations are very common in boxing because trust goes a long way in this sport, and the fighter wants, and need to know he can trust the information he is getting and that his best interest is being protected. Who does that more that a father, Angel Garcia is the name most look at and place judgement of him as a very vocal and opinionated trainer, who hurts his son more than help, but is that really true.
Angel Garcia has trained his son since he was a child and has done a better job than most of these so-called greatest trainers. Danny Garcia might not have done well under any other trainer, if you listen to the instructions Angel gives in the corner you will see that Angel knows what he's doing and his game plans are spot on.
Enzo Calzaghe was a musician who trained his son and many other boxing trainers said hey turn him over to us we shall take it over from here, but Enzo said no way, because he didn't like the lack of focus they were paying to the fighters. That's how this business is ran, the father takes his son so far then turns him over to a more experienced trainer. Don Felix, Tito Trinidad father, took the boxing world by storm and was cheered when Tito won but the moment Tito lost to Bernard Hopkins, he became a goat overnight. The talk became that he was too soft, not telling his son the truth maybe Trinidad should hire a new Trainer.
Now the talk around the campfire is that Floyd Mayweather Sr. will win trainer of the year honors, but wouldn't it be nice if the underdog trainer with the underdog fighter win those awards. We have endured the corruption of the sport for years, let us enjoy the purity of it, for once.
