Ever since relocating to the West Coast in late 2009, Hustle Boss has frequented some of the best boxing hotbeds in Las Vegas and Northern and Southern California, including the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy.
Decorated trainer Robert Garcia, a former junior lightweight world champion who has since gone on to win multiple ‘Trainer of the Year’ titles, has established himself as one of the faces of the sport in recent years. Garcia held the IBF junior lightweight title briefly in the late 90′s and has spent recent years honing the skills of Brandon Rios, Marcos Maidana, Nonito Donaire, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Jesus Cuellar, and countless other prizefighters.
The Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Oxnard stamped itself as one of the top training destinations in the sport in recent years but Robert knew that a change was in order, hence his decision to open a new spot in Riverside.
Check below for photos of Garcia’s new gym, including training shots of Rios, contender Josesito Lopez, and others, and stay tuned for more updates on the new gym in the coming days.
