Ryan Garcia Record
Ryan Garcia, born in Los Alamitos in California on August 8, 1998, is now 23 years of old and has the boxing world at his feet. He stands 5ft 10ins tall (1.78m) and has a reach of 70ins (1.78m).
Garcia has a pro record of 23-0 with 19 of those victories coming inside distance. He has a left hook which would stop a mule – just like De La Hoya. The comparisons just keep on coming.
Ryan has also showed he can come through adversity, getting off the floor to stop plucky Brit Campbell in early 2021.
Garcia, like we said, has fought just once since that Campbell win – a decision win over Emmanuel Tagoe in April 2022. Before that he had endured a hand injury and taken some time out to take care of his mental health.
