Ryan Garcia Media Day


WBC Silver Lightweight Champion Ryan Garcia (19-0, 16 KOs) held a media workout on Monday afternoon at the Westside Boxing Club in Los Angeles ahead of his fight against Nicaragua's Francisco Fonseca (25-2-2, 19 KOs). Garcia takes on Fonseca on Valentine's Day Friday Feb. 14 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California live on DAZN.

Here is what Garcia had to say as he was accompanied by his promoter Oscar De La Hoya.

Ryan Garcia:

“It’s a big moment for me. I can’t have a bad performance. I’m taking this opponent serious. I plan on having a good performance. I feel good, camp has been great just like any other fight. This is the first step for good things to come in 2020. I want 4 fights in 2020. Fonseca, Jorge Linares, Luke Campbell, and Gervonta Davis. That’s the fight I’ve been pushing for.”

Oscar De La Hoya:

“We thought February 14 would be a perfect date for Ryan. This is his coming out party. I believe he will be world champ. He will fight for a world title by the end of the year. This will be a huge year for Ryan Garcia. If all goes well February 14th. We’ll see what’s up for his next fight. Ryan’s ready for the best!”
