Interim WBC Lightweight Champion Ryan “Kingree” Garcia posted a short clip on Instagram of him training with a bag, showing off his incredible hand speed.
Ryan Garcia (21-0, 18 KOs) has been dealing with mental issues recently, but he seems to be dealing with them, including with the help of his support team to help him get through this difficult time.
Ryan Garcia has a great training team with coach Eddie Reinoso and fellow gym mates Canelo Alvarez, Andy Ruiz Jr., Oscar Valdez and Frank Sanchez.
There have been many negative comments boxing fans have made about Ryan, saying that he gave up the fight with Javier Fortuna because he was afraid of him.
Ryan Garcia disconnects from the negative statics of his haters and instead focuses on staying positive in order to get his career back on track.
Ryan Garcia, 22, has many boxing fans who are waiting for him to reveal when he plans to return to the ring. His fight on July 9 against Javier Fortuna is canceled.
Earlier today it was revealed that Joseph “Joe” Diaz will replace Fortuna (36-2-1, 25 KOs) on the July 9 card for DAZN on that date.
Ryan Garcia’s Statement for Fans
‘Thanks to everyone who showed their support! With the help of my support team and my family, I am taking steps forward.
Why anxiety and depression hit me like a truck and why I’m still recovering, I’ll never know. But I’m trying to cope with the issues I’m having! This bag is my anxiety, and I’m swinging with my full intent to destroy it!! 😤🥊
Hopefully Ryan will be able to return to the ring soon so as not to lose all the early successes he has achieved in his career. It’s been four months since Ryan Garcia stopped Luke Campbell in round 7 of the January 2 main event on DAZN.
It was the biggest win in Ryan’s young five-year professional career, and should have given him the opportunity to challenge WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney.
Surprisingly, Ryan gave up the idea of fighting Haney, saying that he thought it was a boring fight for him and that he had other options in Jervonta Davis and Manny Pacquiao’s Tank.
Unfortunately for Ryan Garcia, none of those fights took place, so he returned to his usual position to fight for Haney’s 135lb WBC title. It didn’t make sense considering Ryan had already given up on the idea of fighting Haney.
