Garcia appeared to be genuinely concerned after Jake Paul showed adverse signs upon absorbing the blow. The entire filming crew and associates were in on the elaborate prank. Paul went so far as to arrange an ambulance to legitimize the entire ruse.

Ryan Garcia: Heavy hitter
Garcia is far from a joke inside the ring. The 21-year-old has accrued 17 knockouts in 20 professional bouts. Not to mention he retained his WBC silver lightweight title in a flashy 1st round finish over Francisco Fonseca. The young boxer is expected to face off against Devin Haney in a bout slated for later in the year.
‘The Flash’ lives up to his moniker as he’s attributed with having some of the fastest hands in boxing today. Coupled with his unorthodox lateral movement, Ryan Garcia is a tyrant when the starting bell sounds.
Garcia has been coached by his father throughout his amateur days and molded him into the champion he is today. The boxing community is on edge to see the young phenom evolve as he progresses in the sport.
