Ryan Garcia scored a wicked knockout win over Francisco Fonseca tonight on DAZN, live from Anaheim, and set up a likely big fight in the summer, either against Jorge Linares or someone else.

Garcia (20-0, 17 KO) could fight Linares, which seems the most likely matchup, but he also had an in-ring faceoff with WBC champion-in-recess Devin Haney, and he mentioned Luke Campbell and various other names, too.

At 21, Garcia is young, but he’s got a lot of career momentum in and out of the ring. The feeling is that it’s time to step him up, and that everyone’s ready to see it.

Here’s what some of the boxing pros on Twitter had to say after the fight tonight.
