How is Ryan Garcia this flawed fundamentally?

Oscar had excellent footwork, Ryan's footwork is atrocious.

I have no problem with being walk up/flat footed and not fleet footed/shuffle footed, just not that common to be walk up like that at lightweight.

Reynoso moulding him into Canelo style, big punches @ high volume, conserve tank/aerobic levels by less overall work outside throwing big punches.

Problem is Canelo only mastered this in the last 5 years. He been fighting a while. Garcia gonna get scored on heavy, or danced on heavy the way this is heading.

Sure.

Doesn't change the point that he would grim reaper Garcia at this stage or down the line.

The discussion wasn't about opposition. It was in regards to Garcia's swiss cheese hole flaws.

i agree Garcia got holes and Shakur a more complete fighter, but it’s hard to say when boxers are fighting at different weight classes. Sometimes even moving 5 pounds up can change your performance in a bad way

Cotto favored the inside against Maravilla to land the lead hook. Probably had to do with Sergio's knees but I feel like giving up foot dominance against a lefty isnt necessarily a cardinal sin if the righty knows what he's doing.

That’s fair.

Garcia only strength at this stage is he is a big puncher at lightweight.

When he moves up he’s going to be chicken feed.

agreed. Ryan is too robotic. He's very tall for a lightweight so he never had to really move his feet like that. When he gets older and can't make that 135 and is forced to fight guys his size, he will get brutally KTFO.
