It is neither a contest of legacy or pride nor entirely a competition between the new vs. the old. Although Javier Fortuna is a former world champion holding two distinct titles, in a division that houses the likes of Lomachenko, Davis, Lopez Jr., and Haney, the Dominican is overshadowed. On the other hand, Ryan Garcia is only 23, and having a record of 22-0 brings the desirous prospect of a fight against the young chart-toppers and some of the best.

Therefore, we ask, what makes the Garcia vs. Fortuna fight worth watching? Maybe it is to witness how well-prepared Garcia is before fiery challenges, either from the 135 or 140 pounds, drop on him sooner or later.
