Ryan Garcia vs Javier Fortuna: Main Event preview

Ryan Garcia preview

Ryan "King Ry" Garcia (22-0) is ready to face the challenge in front of him, but he has to be thinking about the bigger fights that are likely just ahead. Garcia is a big name lightweight boxer, and he brings a huge audience to any fight even though he doesn’t have a title. There have been numerous rumors and stories about a fight between Garcia and Gervonta “Tank” Davis. Garcia has also been speculated as a future opponent for undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney. Ryan has tried to stay focused on the fight he has ahead and adjusting to his new trainer Joe Goossen. He switched from former trainer Eddy Reynoso because he felt he wasn’t getting enough time or attention.

Ryan looked good, but not great, in his first fight with Goossen as his trainer. It didn’t help that his opponent, Emmanuel Tagoe, focused on surviving the fight by running around the ring. This frustrated Garcia, and gave him only a few chances to engage and counterpunch. Garcia still won an overwhelming unanimous decision, and he’s ready to move on to a new challenge. If he can convincingly beat another former champion, Garcia may finally be ready for the biggest fights to come.

Javier Fortuna preview

Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna (37-3) is a former WBA super featherweight world champion, and he’s the type of experienced fighter that could give Garcia a serious challenge. Fortuna has been fighting professionally for 13 years, and he’s accustomed to fighting in the spotlight. He won his world title by defeating Bryan Vazquez at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in 2015.

Fortuna fought for a second title last year against Jo-Jo Diaz, but he lost a unanimous decision. Now, after a rebound victory of Rafael Hernandez, Fortuna is ready to give it all against Garcia in the hopes of scoring a signature win for his career.
