This is an interesting video from a few days before the fight.
So this Angel Fernandez was not an assistant. But Joint head trainer this is plain disrespectful to Garcia. If you hire an elite trainer you let him choose or bring his own team.
Or if the elite Trainer is busy with other fighters . You hire an assistant make sure he knows whose the Boss. Like Manny Pacquaio with his assistant Bubouy Fernandez and Freddie Roach. The demarcation lines were clearly drawn.
There were rumours that both Fernandez and the cheer leader coach Joby Clayton were undermining Rob McCracken during the previous camp.
Seems like could be the same situation again you have a young ambitious coach wanted to make a name for himself, so of course he is going try to undermine the other to try and become the only head coach.
Interesting comments on YouTube beneath this video. People were convinced Robert Garcia would be made a scape goat. In the event of a loss.
Despite both Garcia and Fernandez claiming they are on the same page. Body language and interaction between the two tells a different story.
This two head coaches theory never works in practice. The most infamous example was Nadeem Hamed hiring Manny Steward and also apppinting the completely unknown Oscar Suarez as a joint head coach. That turned out to be just absurd. Suarez undermining Steward.
