PBC Corner Confessions: Angel Garcia

Danny Garcia and Robert Guerrero have that classic fighter persona going on, where they might be beasts in in the ring, but outside the ropes they're laid back like cats in a sunbeam. 

Their respective father-trainers? Not so much. 

Angel Garcia and Ruben Guerrero have both been known to engage in the ancient and subtle art of furious trash-talking. And it's not JV-level stuff, either.

These are two guys who elevate the jawing game to a snarling poetry of loud-mouthed ego stomping. So naturally, along the promotional trail for their sons' 147-pound title fight in Los Angeles on Saturday (Fox, 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT), it was only a matter of time before they got into it with each other.

Ruben Guerrero fired the first shots at Thursday's press conference, but Angel Garcia was rather disinclined to stand down. Put in your headphones and hide the kids, as the language here gets saltier than olive brine potato chips.

Seeing as how we're just two days removed from the big show, there's not much of a wait to see which son will back up his father's words. Words like "Little girls like that, you can't slap them," from Ruben about Angel. Or "You know how when you play with dog s**t, it starts stinking more? That's what he's doing," from Angel to Ruben.

It's too bad the undercard is full, but it's never too early to start thinking about who might be available should a rematch happen.
