Ryan Garcia’s previous victory

In his last fight for WBC interim lightweight world title, ‘Kingry’ thrashed Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell in a tough battle. This fight was the test of Ryan’s mettle as he was knockdown with a hard left hook landing on the chin in the second round. Limited movement of head and feet cost Garcia in the early rounds of the fight. This was his first knockdown in his professional career.

Though Ryan showed his grit, he made a comeback with great speed blocks. Great hands with the powerful hook shots, he dominated the next 5 rounds and finished Luke in the 7th round with a fantastic crippling body shot. Keeping in mind the height advantage, he countered southpaw Luke with straight combinations and hooks.

After winning the fight, he had to face the Challenger super featherweight champion, Javier Fortuna. But due to health issues, he withdrew from the fight and was stripped of his title. Later, ‘Kingry’ was all set to Challenge Joseph Diaz for the same title in October 2021, but his wrist injury resisted him from doing so.

Since then, Garcia is recovering from a hand injury and as of now, he is keen to make a comeback. Truly, this year ‘Kingry’ is going to fulfill all promises made to his fans by stepping into the ring and taking back all his belts.
