Garcia to leave Mayweather's corner

By Salvador Rodriguez | ESPNDeportes.com

Rafael Garcia is no longer in charge of taping Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s fists and being his cutman, something he has done since 2001. The main reason: It's time to retire at 85 years of age.

Garcia's name is among those mentioned in possible changes that Mayweather will make to his team along with Maayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe. Garcia did not wrap Mayweather's hands during Saturday's rematch against Marcos Maidana.

And Garcia said that before Mayweather notifies him regarding his future, he has already thanked him.

"Yes, it's true I didn't tape him, but he hasn't fired me," Garcia told ESPNDeportes.com. "

85 is up there.  The reality is, people in every line of work get pressured to retire long before that age.
