Lightweight star Ryan Garcia is not one of our everyday boxers. The 23-year-old is a superstar, even outside the pugilistic community. He has a massive following on social media and is a popular face on Instagram. ‘KingRy’ also has his own YouTube channel with over a million subscribers. Considering his reach, he brings in several YouTubers to his gym.

Dr. Mike was the latest one, who impressed ‘KingRy’ with his powerful shots. However, he almost rocked Ryan Garcia’s father, Henry Garcia. As suggested, Dr. Mike threw his fists on a power punching bag, while Henry Garcia was on the other side. One of those shots took out Henry Garcia. In reaction, Ryan Garcia said, “Dr. Mike, Dr. Mike, looking good. You looking good, knocked down my dad. I’mma have to step in the ring.”

It was clearly friendly banter, as Garcia seemed to relish the incident. In the past, Ryan Garcia’s YouTube channel has revealed his training sessions with Logan Paul and Jake Paul. Thus, Dr. Mike was just an addition to that list.

Amid these stellar incidents, Ryan Garcia’s in-ring career is still in jeopardy. With just one fight this year, he has been stripped of the WBC Interim lightweight title. Hence, ‘KingRy’ may have many serious tasks to accomplish once he does re-enter the ring.

What’s next for Ryan Garcia?

The youngster has walked out of two scheduled fights this year. After dropping out from the Javier Fortuna bout, Garcia’s arm injury has cost him a shot at Joseph ‘JoJo’ Diaz. He posted a picture from the hospital bed and claimed to have had a successful surgery.

This reflects his chances of returning in early 2022. The lightweight division’s depth will constantly provide him big matchups. However, it’s high time we see Garcia enter the world title ride. For that, the undefeated star will have to return and win some fights without taking a hiatus.
