One of the most elite young boxing talents from America, Ryan Garcia, has laid out his retirement plans. Just like the British legend Anthony Joshua, ‘KingRy’ too has decided to hang his gloves from the sport at an early age.
Ever since his first stepping inside the ring, Garcia has become the talk of the town. He maintains a lush lifestyle in and outside the game. ‘KingRy’ has a prolific social media profile and has millions of followers on the same.
The 22-year-old said, “I’m gonna move on to inspire people in a different way and to play my part in this battle against hate and confusion in America.”
Garcia recently fought Luke Campbell for the WBC interim championship. He suffered a knockdown in round two, but displayed a champion’s mindset, and bounced back to land a vicious body shot on ‘Cool Hand’ to finish the fight in round 7. This comeback inspired one and all and Garcia wants to do the same away from the ring too.
However, this statement staggered his fans as the youngster will have only four years left in his career as per his comment.
Can Ryan Garcia walk down as a legend of the sport?
With his last weekend win over Britain’s Luke Campbell, Ryan Garcia improved his record and reached 21 wins. He is undefeated in his boxing run and is showing no signs of stopping at all. Among all the young stalwarts of boxing, ‘KingRy’ unquestionably tops the charts.
He is now the WBC interim lightweight champion and in a few months, he’ll fight for the ultimate lightweight gold.
With his current skill-sets and champion mentality, Ryan Garcia will definitely go down as one of the big-wigs of the sport. However, he needs to move quickly, if he is to achieve his lofty goals and justify his talent at lightweight before moving away from the squared circle.
