Ryan Garcia knows how to deal with passion and anxiety

The 22-year-old is already a global sensation. So, he advised the youngsters with some life-changing philosophy and thrilled his fans.

The unbeaten champion said, “If you have that passion inside you and you know what you are capable of chasing and shooting for the moment because you are gonna end up in the stars, anyway.”

“So the more pressure that’s on you is gonna turn you into a diamond if you don’t quit. So don’t quit and keep chasing your dreams.”
