Who will Ryan Garcia face in July?

The American sensation revealed the timeline for his return. However, he did not announce his opponent as yet. And given that Ryan Garcia fights in the lightweight division, he has a plethora of options to share the ring with.

Initially, it looked certain that he would take on Gervonta Davis. However, he chased a possible super-fight against Manny Pacquiao. As a result, the ‘Tank’ Davis fight fell through, and weeks later, the Pacquiao bout joined the scrapheap.

Now, rumors suggest Garcia has settled for a bout against Javier Fortuna. However, this will be a step down from the super-fight Garcia wanted.

On the flip side, it will give the American sensation time to cement his place as the WBC mandatory challenger. Moreover, it will allow him to match his timeline with the other champions fighting in a similar time frame.

What do you make of this post from Ryan Garcia? Do you think we will see a better ‘KingRy’ in the next fight?
