Trainer Robert Garcia On What Really Happened With Alleged Arrest

Renowned boxing trainer Robert Garcia is at the centre of some controversy at the moment.

It pertains to a video that shows him getting taken away in handcuffs by members of the police during the build-up to a boxing event.

Many will remember Garcia for training notable fighters such as Fernando Vargas, Brandon Rios, Nonito Donaire, Kelly Pavlik and Marco Antonion Rubio to name a few.
