Recently, he took it to his Twitter handle to issue a fiery statement on his subsequent fights. Garcia wrote, “2022 is going to be my year”

“Only Huge fights LETS GO!!”

‘King Ry’ took his last fight in January 2021 and since then he took a long layoff, thus developing substantial ring rust. He also won the WBC interim lightweight title by beating the Brit, Luke Campbell. In this fight, the 23-year-old showed absolute class as he went down on the canvas first but eventually got up and annihilated his adversary to claim a win.

But since he had no activity, the WBC stripped him of his title and now he’ll have to gain that back to fight bigger opponents ahead. More than anyone else, he is ecstatic to battle out the best men in his division and cement his reign consequently.

Until now, he’s exchanged verbal blows with Gervonta Davis and the WBC lightweight champ, Devin Haney. Chiefly, there’s a high possibility of him facing either of these fighters in the coming time.

Who should Ryan Garcia face on his return?

Garcia has many rivals in the talent stacked lightweight division and the above-mentioned names are on top of the list for him.

However, since he’s had no activity over the past few months, the chances of him facing Haney or Davis are extremely slim. ‘King Ry’ might first have to battle out the current WBC interim champ, Joseph Diaz. And if he gets past the former, then he’d be on top of the contention to face the real bigwigs of his division.
