Ireland’s McKenna brothers join forces with trainer Robert Garcia
8-0, 5KO’s Aaron “Silencer” McKenna and 2-0, 2KO’s Stevie “Hitman” McKenna have brought in famed former World Champion tuned elite trainer, Roberto Garcia to Team McKenna.

The coach is a Mexican-American former professional boxer who competed from 1992 to 2001. He held the IBF junior lightweight title from 1998 to 1999.
Garcia has since worked as a boxing trainer, and was voted Trainer of the Year by The Ring magazine in 2011, and by the Boxing Writers Association of America in 2012.
He is the older brother of professional boxer Mikey Garcia, who is a world champion in four weight divisions.
“We are thrilled that Robert Garcia is joining Team McKenna. His experience working with countless world champions will be invaluable for the development of Aaron & Stevie” – Lyle Green V.P of Sheer Sports.

The Monaghan native is coming off a great 2nd round win against Daniel Perales on June 21st.
McKenna, who turns 20 on July 6th is looking to fight at least three times before the end of the year.
“It’s great to be back in action so soon. I like to stay hungry and work hard in the gym so that I’m always ready.
