Ryan “Kingry” Garcia Media Day

By Miguel Maravilla

WBC Silver lightweight champion Ryan Garcia (19-0, 16 KOs) of Victorville, California held a media day workout Monday afternoon at the Westside Boxing Gym in Los Angeles ahead of his next fight against Francisco Fonseca (25-2-2, 19 KOs) of Nicaragua. Garcia squares off against Fonseca next month on Friday, February 14, Valentines Day at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California live on DAZN.

Ryan Garcia: “It’s a big moment for me. I can’t have a bad performance. I’m taking this opponent serious. I plan on having a good performance. I feel good, camp has been great just like any other fight. This is the first step for good things to come in 2020. I want 4 fights in 2020. Fonseca, Jorge Linares, Luke Campbell, and Gervonta Davis. That’s the fight I’ve been pushing for.”

Oscar De La Hoya: “We thought February 14 would be a perfect date for Ryan. This is his coming out party. I believe he will be world champ. He will fight for a world title by the end of the year. This will be a huge year for Ryan Garcia. If all goes well February 14th. We’ll see what’s up for his next fight. Ryan’s ready for the best!”

  • I believe Oscar will have some troubles in finding Garcia’s a winnable title fight. Hanney and Lopez are way above his level, let alone Lomachenko.Gervonta, based in the way is handling his boxing career, is truly a winnable fight, but its a fight almost imposible to get made. Who else? Maybe a bogus interim or regular WBA? We’ll see. All I see now is that seems Garcia is improving and taking his boxing career with high degree of motivation and discipline, a nice formula to succeed when added to a some degrees of talent.

  • Not sold on Garcia, he will keep being hand feed into a title shot which Oscar will have the judges paid off.

  • Ryan is not a very likable person, Typical Gen Z, entitled and arrogant. Personalities aside he’s a good fighter, properly dispatched Duno after so many who regularly comment on this site doubted him and claimed he was ducking. I think tank is too much for him right now, the jury is still out, let’s see what he does f he can get past his next three opponents handily. Also, there is no conspiracy of paying off judges these days. We’re not in the 50s anymore.

    • Judges may not be directly paid off, but they are often told who is to get any relatively close decision if they wish to continue working. If this were not true how do you explain judges with terrible decisions still getting to work big money fights?

  • You know it’s a debatable subject when a Oscar is in the mix. You know, the delays, cherry-pickin’, long legal contracts with all the disclaimers, fight locations, etc. This is nothing, but foreplay to suck us in. Until I see it, I will believe it….

  • Good luck beating Lopez. All others he named, other the Davis, do not matter. He may be able to beat an older Linares, but the others…I’ll believe when I see.
