He may not have zeroed in on his next opponent so far. But Ryan Garcia knows for sure where to put his money. The 25-year-old young boxer from California is keenly looking forward to the upcoming Super Bowl LVIII. He seems to have a clear vision of who will claim victory. So much so, to underscore his confidence, he even publicly declared the specific amount he was willing to wager.

Garcia fought and outclassed Oscar Duarte in December last year. Thereafter, began a merry-go-round, which saw him move from one potential opponent to another. It has kept the entire boxing community on the fence ever since. The enigma has now managed to drag its feet to the Super Bowl weekend. There are two days more to go, and the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will meet again at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 11. As much as the Chiefs, last year’s winners, would want to win their fourth Super Bowl, the 49ers wouldn’t want to miss their chance. In the battle between two giants, the Californian knows where his heart tilts.

$100,000 on the Kansas City Chiefs to take away the Super Bowl for the second consecutive time. That’s what Ryan Garcia told fans and followers during the wee hours of the day. “I’m betting 100k on the Chiefs to win,” he said. However, he added that whatever the amount he wins, it will be contributed to a charitable cause. However, to effect that, he sought suggestions from the crowd: “With all of the winning’s I will donate to charity. Also comment what charity’s are some I should consider.

A few minutes later, when one of the users suggested that he should donate $100,000 for a worthy cause, Garcia responded by confirming the same: “Okay, lock that in.” Unsurprisingly, the young boxer also received a range of personal requests to think over.

Once again, he requested that everyone put in their two cents on the foundation he could consider donating $100,000. He said, “Please comment what charity’s I should consider. 100k committed.
