In 2022, there will be some highly anticipated boxing returns, and among all, fans are most excited to see Ryan Garcia. The 23-year-old did not have a great 2021 and competed in just 1 fight the previous year. That too, this fight came early in 2021, following which fans have been eagerly waiting for his return.

However, Garcia went through a dark phase for the rest of the year, which eventually kept him out of the sport.

Furthermore, ‘King Ry’ moved on from this phase and now he’s eyeing a fiery return. But before that, he recently came up with a statement for the fans who abandoned him.

On his Instagram story, he wrote, “When I’m back with a W After this hard year, i want everyone to know I’m not mad if you left, it’s hard to believe that’s why i walk by faith”

Ryan Garcia’s last fight was against the supremely skilled Luke Campbell. The Briton was considered the most rugged test for the American boxer. On top of this, the bout between these two had the WBC interim lightweight title on the line.

Garcia was the favorite to win, but Campbell sent shock waves all around by dropping his foe in round 2.

‘King Ry’ paid the price for keeping his chin wide open, thus allowing Campbell to land his best shot. However, he rectified his mistake in the later rounds by not dropping his guard. Finally, it was in round 7 that Garcia hammered Campbell with a massive body blow to conclude the fight.

Who is Ryan Garcia targeting next?

Over the past few weeks, Ryan Garcia has made it to the headlines by shifting his radar to Isaac Cruz. The duo even engaged in a verbal back and forth quite a few times.

The undefeated boxer is constantly going after Cruz, and it seems that Garcia has his comeback opponent set.

The fight contracts and more are yet to be ironed out by the two teams. That said, if this fight happens, it can tentatively come to life by April or May.
