Robert Garcia is not unlike Earl Woods, the father of Tiger Woods, as his praise of Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez was spoken into the gospel in 2022. The star trainer, who has built a great reputation in the sport of boxing amongst his peers, and coaches, now has yet another fighter in a world title fight as a Bam Rodriguez looks to become a two-division world champion, as he fights for the vacant WBO flyweight world title, against Cristian Gonzalez, on DAZN, Saturday, April 8th, from San Antonio, Texas.
Rodriguez, a Cinderella story of 2022 looks to continue his success this year with another stand-out performance, as his coach Garcia didn’t have much to say - but let us know that “Bam” will be ready for the moment.
“April 8th, on DAZN, [we’re ready],” said Robert Garcia when speaking exclusively to ProBoxTV.
Gonzalez, who all fight week has explained he is coming to win, looks taller and has a resume that doesn't really indicate much about how he will fair against a world-class fighter. With Rodriguez coming off a very mortal looking performance against Israel Gonzalez, Rodriguez fighting out home will certainly look to shake off some of the doubt, detractors might have.
As Bam looks to be a two-weight world champion, while topping the bill of a major fight card in his hometown, Robert Garcia simply told us all we need to know.
“[Bam] is ready to go,” said Garcia.
