When could Ryan Garcia return?

Looking at his post, it is clear to see Garcia is preparing for training camp. The undefeated star has always said he stays in shape throughout the year. And given that he is getting over his mental struggles, we could see him back soon. So when will his comeback happen?

Fans could see Garcia back as early as August. If Garcia can fight in August or September, he could also get in another fight at the end of the year. However, if the WBC interim champion delays until October, then fans will only get to watch him compete once this year.
