Golden Boy, Kingry ink contract extension

Update: It was just announced that Kingry will face Romero Duno on November 2.

Golden Boy and Ryan “Kingry” Garcia have settled their differences with the popular lightweight extending his multi-year agreement with the company. The announcement referred to the deal as “one of the most lucrative deals in history for a boxing prospect.” Garcia will make his return in the co-main event of Canelo vs. Kovalev on DAZN November 2.

Oscar de la Hoya: “One of our defining features as a company is to develop champions and make them into stars. From the second we discovered Garcia, we knew he was different. We knew he was special. We knew he could move the needle. Besides his amazing talent, he brings an outside appeal that few fighters can achieve. At the same time, he also needs the right environment to develop, and that environment is with us. Under our guidance, I have no doubt that this young, charismatic fighter will become the biggest star in the sport.”

Ryan Garcia: “Actions speak louder than words. I’m here today to show everybody that I consider Golden Boy my family and that we’re going to be in this together as I fulfill my dreams. Just like I have all the capabilities to become a big star, Golden Boy has all the tools to get me there. But I just want to tell all of our fans: Enjoy the ride!”

  • How do you talk all this crap and now your family. At least you should have said, they made up for their wrong, this is a business not just a sport and made a deal I couldnt refuse. How crazy…

  • Golden Boy should try to reel in Kavaliaskus (#1 WBO, 147) and give him an offer to fight Patrick Teixeira for the vacant WBO 154 lbs title, at a 152 lbs catchweight. Kavaliaskus has been with Top Rank for a long time, maybe his contract is negotiable to leave for a title fight elsewhere. The guy has 0 chance against Crawford, everyone knows it. Against Patrick Teixeira, he’s got a shot. And Munguia is going up to 160. Shouldn’t Crawford be fighting Carlos Adames (Top Rank) if he really wants an in house super fight that he may potentially lose? They just want to pretend Spence is going to happen in 2020. Spence will fight Danny Garcia, Jamal James, Lipinets or Pacquiao, in 2020, along with his mandatory. Heck, Spence could let his IBF belt go if Top Rank wants to hold onto him (Kudratillo Abdukakhorov ) after he beats ancient Luis Collazo.

  • Until 5′-5″ Tank Davis/Devin Haney knocks him into tomorrow. 5′-10″ as a lightweight? Get inside and blast him. Sorry height is overrated, reach, and all the other BS.

  • I don’t get it, first this kid was seated on the floor, crying and moving his legs back and forth with at laud tantrum. On the back ground a part of this song “kelis- I hate you so much right now” could be heard. Then Oscar came and pushed inside his mouth a big pacifier with an extra size nipple, and that was it. Different song now (love is in the air) and back to the social media, now with a love story. SMH
