The five feet and ten inches tall boxer, after an outstanding amateur outing, started his professional journey in 2016 and received his first belt, WBC - NABF (Vacant) Junior Super Featherweight championship, a year later. Four years later, he won the WBC (Vacant) Interim Lightweight championship.

So far, he has participated in twenty-five fights, with just one loss in his boxing record.

Ryan Garcia’s early life

Ryan Garcia was born to Henry Garcia and Lisa Diaz on August 8, 1998, in Victorville, California. He comes from a large family, which includes three sisters - Kayla Garcia, Demi Elise, and Sasaha Marie, and a brother Sean, who is also into boxing.

Sean was born on October 24, 2000. Like his brother, he was initially introduced to boxing by their father. He debuted professionally on October 28, 2017, against Luis Eduardo Ochoa. As of now, his record stands at seven wins and one draw. According to SportLulu, he and his wife, Surrissa, are parents to Layla and Ellie.

Of Mexican ancestry, in the ring, Ryan is often seen carrying the flags of Mexico and the U.S. Unlike many other examples, Garcia stays happily with his family. He started learning the nuances of boxing from his father, a former boxer. On the other hand, his mother has been reported to handle some of his ventures.

Though only a little information is available regarding his education, based on his mother's previous comments and an LA Times article, it's safe to presume he had primary schooling at Adelanto High School. But increasing involvement with amateur circuits forced a switch over to home-schooling.

Ryan Garcia’s wife and children

Ryan Garcia was married to Andrea Celina, known more popularly as Drea Celina. They announced their divorce in January, after the birth of their first baby boy Henry Leo Garcia.

The 1996-born model, fitness trainer, and social media influencer of Mexican and Italian descent began dating the famous boxer in 2019. Eventually, they decided to tie the knot in 2021.

In December 2020, they conceived a daughter named Bela. After that, however, their relationship ran into rough weather when pics of Garcia reportedly kissing Cuban-Spanish singer and TikToker Malu Trevejo leaked.

Before he met Drea Celina, KingRy was seeing Catherine Gamez, a Columbian social media celebrity. Their relationship began in 2017. Then, on March 19, 2019, their daughter Rylie was born. Soon after, they separated.

  Ryan Garcia’s net worth

According to CelebrityNetWorth, Ryan Garcia’s net worth stands at approximately in the vicinity of $20 million.

Given that he turned a pro-boxer at age seventeen and the number of big fights he has participated in remain far and few, it could be fair to assume that earnings through sponsorships, endorsements, and deals would have formed a significant share of his fortune.

When he started his professional journey, his paycheck used to be in the periphery of $55,000. Three years later, when he fought Romero Duno at MGM Grand Arena, he received $250,000. After that, however, it was revised, and he ended with $500,000.

In 2022, for the bout against Emmanuel Tagoe, Ryan Garcia reportedly made $3 million, besides 70% of the PPV revenue. Later, for the Javier Fortuna fight, he netted $2 million.

Last year, Garcia was involved in one of the biggest fights of his career against Gervonta Davis. Even though Garcia lost, he was part of one of the highest-grossing PPV events of all time. According to the Victorville native, the fight made over $100 million in revenue. Out of which, Garcia’s fight purse was a whopping $30 million, according to his promoter Oscar De La Hoya.

The 25-year-old boxer then followed up the Davis fight with a matchup against fellow American boxer Oscar Duarte Jurado. The fight, fairly diminished in profile compared to his last bout, fetched Garcia around $ 5 Million, according to various reports.

Moreover, as most know, fight purses are not the only source of Garcia's overall income.

Given his good looks and overall youthful persona, Ryan Garcia is undoubtedly one of the most recognized athletes in the world today. His popularity could be gauged by the 10 million followers that he has on Instagram. Therefore, some notable brands inadvertently lined up to exploit his reach and boost his net worth.

   Ryan Garcia’s career timeline

Ryan Garcia reportedly started training at age seven. In 2014, he won a silver medal at the Reno Junior National Championships (Under 17). Incidentally, one of the boxers to whom he lost a bout was future champion, Devin Haney.

The following year the duo met again at Youth National Championships (Under 19) in Reno, and the outcome was to repeat itself. But in 2016, Ryan Garcia had his moment when he won the Gold at the 2016 Youth National Championships (Under 19). His amateur record stood at two hundred and fifteen wins against fifteen losses.

By June 2016, he launched his professional career with a technical knockout win over Edgar Meza in Tijuana. He won his first title, the vacant WBC - NABF Junior Super Featherweight title, a year later on September 15, 2017.

By May 4, 2018, a unanimous victory of Jayson Velez enabled him to top up the titles to WBC - NABF and WBO - NABO Super Featherweight. Then, on November 2, 2019, a knockout victory over Romero Duno fetched him the WBO - NABO and the vacant WBC Silver Lightweight titles, which he ably defended against Francisco Fonseca.on February 14, 2020.

His big moment came on January 2, 2021, when he defeated 2012 Olympic gold medalist Luke Campbell at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, and took home his first title, WBC Interim Lightweight.

In 2022, Ryan Garcia had two bouts, the first on April 9 in San Antonio against Emmanuel Tagoe and the second on July 16 in Los Angeles against former champion Javier Fortuna. Not only did he win resoundingly in both, but the matches provided significant fight purses to him.

Last year too, Garcia fought twice. On April 22, 2023, 'KingRy' fought Gervonta Davis at T-Mobile Arena in Nevada.

It was the biggest PPV event of his entire career, but unfortunately, he picked up his first loss in his professional boxing record. Garcia was outperformed by Davis, the latter knocking Garcia down in the second round by a counter left hook, and then subsequently ending the fight with a brutal body shot that made the Victorville native take a knee, unable to respond to the referee’s ten-count. However, KingRy managed to make a successful comeback in December against his American counterpart Oscar Duarte, knocking him out in the eighth round.

Ryan Garcia’s contract

It would be interesting to note that in September 2019, Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions and Ryan Garcia reportedly settled for a $700 million deal. Garcia's agreement with the promotions got a five-year extension the same month.

However, Garcia's relationship with Golden Boy Promotions' head honcho Oscar De La Hoya has soured since 2023 April.

It all started after the 6-division world champion was a no-show at the post-match conference of the Davis fight. KingRy was upset that his promoter wasn't there for moral support, and over the entire year questioned his loyalty. Garcia's legal team even sent a demand letter alleging a violation of the contractual agreement between him and the promotion, thereby demanding the contract be terminated. In response, Oscar De La Hoya's promotion filed a lawsuit against Garcia to enforce its contract with the boxer. This prompted Garcia to file a motion aiming to dismiss Golden Boy Promotions' lawsuit against him. "

Rather than stand by their boxer, De La Hoya and his co-owners of Golden Boy took to social media to disparage him," the motion stated. "In a sport where the exploitation of boxers is legend, De La Hoya and Golden Boy have written a new chapter."   

The motion also alleged that Golden Boy failed to fulfill its payment obligations to Garcia, and didn't honor broadcast commitments. As things stand currently, Ryan Garcia is still fighting under the Golden Boy Promotions banner, but the bad blood between him and De La Hoya persists. 

Ryan Garcia’s partnership and endorsements

It isn't a surprise that some big companies have lined up to exploit Garcia’s reach as a rising star in boxing with immense talent and charisma. 

Gym Shark, one of the most well-known fitness accessories and apparel companies, offered the boxer one of the biggest endorsement deals of his career. However, the exact figure of the deal is not known. 

In 2018, Garcia signed an endorsement deal with Gatorade and has even appeared in a few different commercials for the company. Apart from that, he is also signed with the Mexican Tequila brand 1800 Tequila and luxury fashion brand Dior.

His most recent brand association is with YoungLA, a lifestyle clothing brand based in the US. He signed a deal with the company in 2023. 

Additionally, he is known to have undertaken modeling assignments for a few other big names.
