For a long time now, Ryan Garcia has been on the receiving end of a huge backlash for his constant pullouts from fights this year. Garcia, who won the WBC interim lightweight strap earlier this year, was expected to keep an active stint and even go ahead for a title shot. However, the prodigy failed to keep an active stint.

Recently, he pulled out of his fight with Joseph Diaz due to a hand injury. As a result, his aspiration to fight for the gold went out of the picture.

However, ‘King Ry’ took everything onto his chin and he even gave a response to everyone going after him. Taking to his Twitter, Garcia addressed his inactive stint, and he even aimed at his potential opponents.

“I know I only fought once this year but if someone can tell me of my peers that have fought more then twice let me know??” he wrote.

Indirectly, Garcia hit at his top rivals in the lightweight roster, Devin Haney, Gervonta Davis, and Teofimo Lopez.

Out of the trio, Gervonta Davis and Devin Haney are only lined up for their second fight of 2021. While ‘Tank’ is aligned for his fight against Isaac Cruz on December 5, Haney will battle out the WBC interim champ, Joseph Diaz.

The unified lightweight champ, Teofimo Lopez, will take on George Kambosos Jr. for his title defense on November 27. Just like Garcia, Lopez, too, has remained inactive for a while, due to which the entire lightweight division stagnated.
