Golden Boy Promotions will be dropping the first installment of a new documentary series on Monday entitled ‘Off the Canvas,’ highlighting behind the scenes footage of fighters immediately following their bouts. The series will stream on DAZN.
The first episode will feature lightweight Ryan Garcia following his first round KO over Francisco Fonseca on Valentine’s Day. Golden Boy promoter Oscar De La Hoya says this series will just be another way for fans to get more insight into their favorite fighters.
“This series is part of our longstanding effort to provide fans with compelling narratives for our fights,” said De La Hoya. “One way to do that is by getting to know our fighters intimately.
“Each member of our roster has their own distinctive personality, and the more fans get to know them the way we do, the more they will be on the edge of their seat each time they see them perform. ‘Off the Canvas’ will allow fans to get up close and personal in a way that has never been done before.”
Garcia, 21, was expected to be in line to face Jorge Linares in his next outing this summer in July but with the complete shutdown of boxing over the coronavirus pandemic it’s not exactly clear how the ripple effect will pan out in terms of scheduling.
