Rick Reeno of BoxingScene.com reports that Robert Garcia and Brandon Rios are going to be taking Floyd Mayweather Jr up on his offer to attend the Mayweather vs Ortiz fight on Saturday night, and Leonard Ellerbe says not to be surprised if Rios and Garcia are part of Mayweather's entourage for the ring walks.

Rios and Garcia are serious real life rivals of Ortiz and his trainer, Danny Garcia, who is Robert's brother. Years ago, Ortiz started his career under Robert's tutelage, and worked with Rios in the gym frequently. But Ortiz fired Robert and hired Danny. Since then, the family feud between the Garcia brothers has been nasty, and Rios and Ortiz have not had kind words for one another, either.

Danny Garcia did address this at today's press conference, thanking Mayweather for inviting Robert and Rios, saying that he hoped he would get a chance to speak with his brother and patch things up. He said that he loved his brother. It was kind of a heartbreaking moment, to be honest.
