From Sean Jones: Unbeaten Light Weight contender/prospect Ryan Garcia (17-0, 14 KOs) will Probably Be fighting this Saturday night against the Newly twice beaten José ‘Wonder Boy’ López (20-3-1, 14 KOs) in a 10 round Struggle on the Tito Acosta vs. Ganigan Lopez card DAZN at the Fantasy Springs Casino, at Indio, California.
This is going to be Ryan Garcia’s second fight with trainer Eddy Reynoso, that additionally trains star Saul Canelo Alvarez. Garcia is expecting that Reynoso may enhance his game to the degree to where they can accomplish things that Canelo has. It’s definitely going to be hard though, because Canelo is naturally quick, both at learning, along with his hands rate. Canelo also packs a punch, and this ’s an section of Garcia’s match he’s lacking.
Garcia can hurt guys with an accumulation of shots, however he’s not necessarily a knockout puncher. The top 82% percentage that Ryan has is more of a commodity of him matched against plenty of third grade resistance that lacked the eyebrow , and boxing skills to stay vertical against him. Contrary to the 2 most useful opponents Garcia has faced throughout his inaugural expert career against Jayson Velez along with Carlos Morales, he never came near knocking either of the guys outside.
Incredibly, Garcia came to losing the Morales fight in winning with way of a 10 round majority decision. That fight, which happened last September, revealed that Garcia isn’t ready to fight any of the talented light weights at the branch. Garcia is too upright, and also be walked by his own opponents should they possess some talented like Morales.
In Morales’ last fight after his loss to Garcia, he had been defeated by journeyman Rene Alvarado (30-8, 20 KOs) with way of a 12 round unanimous selection. Alvarado did a much better job beating Morales than Garcia did. Styles make fights obviously, however it was surprising to watch Alvarado, 30, doing a much better job of beating Morales than Garcia did, as the Argentinian fighter isn’t even hyped in precisely exactly the same way the Golden Boy fighter is being done at the moment.
Garcia, 20, Should look great against the 25-year-old Lopez, because there’s a chance that he can Find the co-feature spot on the Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Danny Jacobs card May 4 to DAZN at the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although Garcia hasn’t done much in his livelihood to speed a co-feature spot, however he’s got a sizable following on societal networking. Many of Ryan Garcia’s Twitter and also Instagram followers will gladly sign up to DAZN to watch him fight in the co-feature bout to the Canelo-Jacobs card.
Garcia has some stiff competition in trying to find the co-feature spot on the Canelo vs. Jacobs card. Undefeated light-welterweight potential Vergil Ortiz (12-0, 12 KOs) also has a chance to having an co-feature spot, and now he ’therefore looking far more polished and impressive than Ryan at about the same age. Ortiz is 21, and then he ’s knocking out everyone with huge shots. Ortiz isn’t even some man that gets his knockouts through an accumulation of shots at precisely exactly the same way that Garcia is. There’s also highly ranked feather weight Joseph ‘Jo’Jo’ Diaz Jr. and former International Boxing Federation middleweight champion David Lemieux that would make for a great option for your co-feature position. Lemieux is a person who Canelo may end up facing at a certain point. Because of this , it’therefore crucial that golden-boy guarantee that the boxing people sees Canelo and Lemieux fighting the same card so the fight can be assembled up properly.
In Ryan Garcia’s last six fights, ” he ’s had those consequences:
— Braulio Rodriguez TKO 5
— Carlos Morales MD 10
— Fernando Vargas Parra TKO 1
— Noe Martinez Raygoza TKO 8
Garcia is performing exactly what ’s been expected of him against the kind of resistance that is typically fed to prospects, however he’so definitely going to need to show more if he’s to be more trusted by being put in against a world champion in a few years. At this time, Garcia isn’t prepared to be compared against any of those lightweight winners or the very best contenders at the branch. It would be a bad thought for Golden Boy to allow Garcia discuss the ring with highly rankted Light Weight contenders Teofimo Lopez, Luke Campbell, Devin Haney, Anthony Crolla, Jorge Linares, Jose Pedraza or even Rances Barthelemy. These guys are all older than Ryan Garcia, therefore that they really ’r e expected to be a lot more advanced them him in terms of these boxing skill and punching power.
Saturday’so fight by Garcia will show what he can do against a demanding but limited Jose Lopez, who tried his best but was knocked out in the sixth round from Jonathan Oquendo in his last fight last October. If Garcia can knock-out Lopez faster than Oquendo, he may have the ability to make a statement. Oquendo, 3-5, remains fighting at a high point, and he’d probably conquer Ryan if Golden Boy dared create the fight. Garcia has a long ways to go before he’s at his prime of his livelihood, which means you can’t even expect him to do things more experienced, and stronger fighters like Oquendo,” Teofimo Lopez along with Mikey Garcia can do at lightweight. We don’t really know just how good Garcia is how good ’s definitely going to be in the future. What we do know is it’d be a lousy idea for Golden Boy to complement him tough before he’s prepared to make that leap.
Garcia, 20, weighed in at 134.6 lbs at Friday’s weigh in. His rival Lopez weighted in at 134 lbs.
Given the way that Jose Lopez was defeated by Oquendo, Avery Sparrow and Angel Luna, it needs to be a straightforward triumph for Garcia on Saturday night. Lopez could give Garcia some rounds, but then again he mightn’t. Lopez dropped apart in his last fight against Oquendo, and you can get the same to happen against Garcia. Lopez can get halted by the eighth round if Garcia is able to join with lots of his speedy combinations.
