Kingry: This guy cannot beat me

Rising lightweight star Ryan Garcia (19-0, 16 KOs) and Nicaraguan contender Francisco Fonseca (25-2-2, 19 KOs) hosted a media workout today at Real Boxing MMA & Fitness ahead of their 12-round title fight for the WBC silver lightweight title on Friday at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. and streamed live on DAZN.

Ryan Garcia: “Fonseca had okay fights with Farmer and Davis. It was nothing impressive though. I’m a whole different fighter. I’m taller, stronger and just better overall. I watched four rounds of his fight. This guy cannot beat me. He’s going to try to box me. He doesn’t have the power to brawl. He’s going to keep away from me. I’m going to press the fight like a Mexican fighter.”

Francisco Fonseca: “We are prepared to win. If it’s by decision, they are not going to give it to me. So, I know what I have to do. He’s a great fighter, but I’ve had a lot of experience facing top opposition. I don’t want to underestimate Ryan Garcia. He’s a great prospect, but he doesn’t have the experience that Gervonta Davis and Tevin Farmer had. On that basis, I will walk away with the victory on Feb. 14.”

Jorge Linares: “Carlos Morales is very tough and strong. I know him very well. Though I have a lot of experience, I have to be very careful and cautious when the bell rings. Right now, I’m focused on the opponent I will have in front of me this Friday. After that, we’ll see what opportunities we have. Who knows? Maybe I fight in May or June? Boxing is like that. You never know.”

Carlos Morales: “This is the most important fight of my career. Linares is a veteran fighter with a lot of experience. He has everything in his toolbox. He was a three-time division world champion and five-time world champion, so I know I have to come at my very best.”

  • Pretty boy Ryan will keep winning until his tall lanky A@@ gets whupped by Davis in a KO. Hes a manufactured fighter. First top tier opposition hes gone and all his twitter girlfriends.

  • Garcia is over rated, spoiled little brat will get exposed soon enough. Gervonta Davis is another over rated clown who struggled with an injured Gamboa who was about as stable as a 3 legged table thanks to an injured foot the same guy who was soundly beaten even more convincingly by journeyman Castellanos and Gamboa had two good feet in that fight!

  • Garcia wins this fight no doubt! In fact, the world is watching! Garcia needs to make a nice statement to make himself even more marketable.

    • Agreed Scoobs… although Fonseca is older, i wld say he is crafty, no doubt. Garcia needs to run thru him to make a strong statement to get that chance at Tank or n e one with a big name
