Ryan Garcia, the 22-year-old WBC Interim lightweight champion, has become a household name in the combat world. He is a superstar in the making and has a vast future ahead. Hailing from Eddy Reynoso’s Team Canelo, he is one of the brightest prospects on the roster.

However, ‘King Ry’ still has a long path to cover. To continue his dominance, he will have to push the limits every time. Following the Interim title win against Luke Campbell in January, Garcia will defend it against Javier Fortuna in July. While the boxer is seemingly in an active training camp, his coach connected with the fans and reflected light on Garcia’s future.

“He (Ryan Garcia) is a young one, he needs to keep learning. He needs to keep his head down and keep improving like he has. If he does, his ceiling is so high that he can reach whatever heights he wants,” said Reynoso. (via a translator)

Reynoso’s boxing stable is full of elite pugilists, including the likes of Ryan Garcia, Oscar Valdez, Canelo Alvarez, Andy Ruiz Jr., and more. Meanwhile, Garcia’s Internet stance and social media appearances have turned him into a superstar outside the boxing ring. While he remains an undefeated champion in-ring, Eddy Reynoso’s prediction may come true.

Is Ryan Garcia safe in the elite 135 lbs roster?

Although the young champion has appeared near-perfect in his professional career, his last fight might have revealed a few loopholes. The British boxer, Luke Campbell, rocked Ryan Garcia with a thunderous shot in the fight, feeding him to the canvas.

In no time, ‘King Ry’ regained himself and won the fight by stopping Luke Campbell. However, the thunderous shot can be a massive blueprint for Garcia’s nearing oppositions. As Eddy Reynoso said, if he keeps his head down, Ryan Garcia might not eat many big shots inside the ring. Moreover, the similar stance off-canvas can turn him into a humble personality for the fans.

But the challenges will pile up as he continues to move forward in the explosive lightweight division. Assuming a successful title defense in his next fight, Ryan Garcia can aim for a world championship bout next.

Do you think ‘King Ry’ will remain undefeated in the division?
