Garcia revealed an inspiring story of himself via social media. He posted a picture of his childhood on Instagram, sending several fans into a frenzy.

Garcia often garners criticism from the fans for being brashy. Several analysts bill him as an Instagram boxer, but Garcia has time and again showcased his prowess inside the ring. As he also holds a valuable title in the WBC Interim 135 lbs strap, he can aim for the bigger steps ahead in his pro career.

He also teased a possible showdown against octuple world champion Manny Pacquiao. But none of those fights seem to meet an official confirmation. So, Ryan Garcia still doesn’t have a fight after winning against Luke Campbell in January. But looking at the ongoing scenario, it seems that he will return to action in a massive bout ahead.

Do you think Ryan Garcia can become the undefeated world champion at 135 lbs?
