Boxing Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins thinks that Ryan Garcia is “more handsome” than “Golden Boy” Oscar De La Hoya.

Following a thrilling KO victory over Filipino boxer Romero Duno, Garcia now is viewed as the next De La Hoya in pro boxing. Pretty much the same as De La Hoya, Garcia too is evidently good-looking. However, De La Hoya’s fellow boxing legend Hopkins sees the younger fighter having a slight advantage over the Olympic gold medallist.

In a recent talk with TMZ Sports, “B-Hop” went straight-forward with the comparison of Garcia to De La Hoya. According to the Hopkins, Garcia could even be bigger than De La Hoya not only because of his superb boxing skills but also because he’s apparently more handsome.

“Ryan Garcia now has the chance to be bigger than Oscar ever was in the ring,” Hopkins said.

“I think he’s more handsome,” Hopkins emphasized.

Hopkins even revealed that his own daughter kept on asking him to tell Garcia some random stuff. He even noted that he felt secured that his daughter wasn’t able to watch the young boxer ringside with him last weekend.

“When you’re daughter is 21, 20 years old now. My daughter, (is like) ‘Dad! Tell Ryan,’ I don’t wanna hear that! I don’t wanna hear my own daughter telling me about tell Ryan Garcia good luck. You supposed to be in school,” Hopkins revealed.

De La Hoya on the other hand, stated that Garcia could become the “next face of boxing.” After being convinced by Garcia’s performance against Duno, De La Hoya himself compared his early days in boxing to what Garcia has been experiencing at this point in his career, Boxing Scene reported.

“I’ve been here before many times as a fighter, where I’ve had to prove myself over and over and over and over,” De La Hoya said about Garcia’s career.

In relation to what Hopkins just said about Garcia’s looks, the Golden Boy CEO appeared like he has acknowledged that Garcia also has the same “handsome image” he once had.

“And it’s a never-ending story. It’s a never-ending story because, you know, I had the gold medal, I was winning world titles, I was, I guess, better looking back then. But it was a never-ending story. ‘Well, when are you gonna fight this fighter? Well, you’re not good enough for this fighter. You have to prove yourself’,” De La Hoya said.

“You know, but that’s the story of a fighter that is becoming great, that is destined to become great. And this next young man [Garcia] is going to be experiencing those same questions. And he’s going to continue to prove [himself],” De La Hoya continued.
