Ryan Garcia vs Emmanuel Tagoe: Main Event preview

Ryan "King Ry" Garcia (21-0) is one of the biggest names in the boxing game right now, which is unusual because he has not won a full world title yet. Garcia is undefeated as a fighter and he recently has been fighting against harder competition. That includes his last fight against former world champion Luke Campbell, who Garcia fought back in January of 2021. Campbell pressed Garcia, knocking him down in the second rough of the fight. Ryan responded by knocking Campbell out in the 7th round with a left liver punch, which put him on his knees for the full count.

Garcia’s popularity is more than just his boxing skills, as it extends to his big social media presence. He has over 8 million followers on Instagram (opens in new tab), way beyond the reach of champion fighters on the pound-for-pound best lists. That has made him a big attraction, but also cost him in stress and anxiety. Garcia has withdrawn from two fights over the past year and said this was in part due to feeling depressed (opens in new tab) and needing to manage his well being. Now he’s returning to the ring and this fight is extra important. The heavy speculation in the boxing world is that, with a win, Garcia could land a fight against world champion Gervonta "Tank" Davis.

Emmanuel "The Gameboy" Tagoe (32-1) is a former IBO lightweight world champion, but his resume lacks anyone on the level of Ryan Garcia. In fact, this is only the third time Tagoe will be fighting outside of his native Ghana, so he won’t have the familiarity or home cooking to get him in the groove for this fight. Tagoe won his world title in 2016 and defended it once in 2018, but he was stripped of the belt later that year. He has enough power to hang in this fight, with nearly half of his wins coming by knockout. However it is hard to see how this experienced and fundamentally sound fighter is ready for this big of a jump up in challenge.

Ryan Garcia is massive -1350 favorite to win this fight over Emmanuel Tagoe.
