Ryan Garcia is one of the most famous boxers in the world, thanks to his online presence. The 22-year-old has not done badly for himself in the ring either.
Despite all this, ‘The Flash’ became famous for posting videos of his training and skills and is now a global star.
Prior to turning pro, Garcia had a very decorated amateur career. He started boxing at the age of 7 under the tutelage of his father, Henry Garcia. The super-star boxer amassed a staggering 15 National Gold Medal Championships, and Gold medal at the 2016 Youth World championships. He also represented the United States Youth Olympic team.
Garcia turned pro at the early age of 17 and had his first fight in Tijuana, Mexico, where he beat Edgar Meza. He has not looked back since and is undefeated.
Life away from boxing has been a roller-coaster for the young fighter. His biggest moment outside the ring was the birth of his daughter, Rylie.
According to BoxRec, Ryan Garcia’s record stands at an unbeaten 21-0. 18 of these 21 victories have been by way of knockout, which gives him a knockout rate of 85.71%.
In January 2021, Garcia faced the toughest test of his career so far. He took on Luke Campbell and won after battling adversity early on. This set things up perfectly for an eventful 2021 which could include a fight against the other big names in the division.
Despite being only 22-years-old, the boxer has expressed his desire to contribute to charity. He challenged YouTube Jake Paul to a fight, where all proceeds would go to some charity.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Garcia has a net worth of $10 million in 2021. This is after the mega-deal he signed with Golden Boy Promotions. Reports suggest that Oscar De La Hoya plans on preparing a monstrous $700 million deal for the super-star.
Despite his primary income coming from his boxing, Garcia also has numerous external sources of income. He was ranked the twelfth most marketable athlete in the world in October 2020.
Garcia is sponsored by the famous fitness apparel company Gymshark, as seen in his Instagram bio.
