Ryan Garcia is a bona fide contender now. Who should he fight next?

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Last week’s Big Question was also about Ryan Garcia, ahead of his fight with Luke Campbell this past Saturday on DAZN. We asked who you thought would win, and it was a remarkable result, with exactly 50 percent for Garcia and exactly 50 percent for Campbell. The exact same number of votes.

I, of course, picked Garcia to knock Campbell out, while the other staffers all thought Campbell would win. Ah, you hate to see it.

But since Garcia did win by knockout, we now wonder about what’s next for the 22-year-old rising superstar.

Maybe it won’t be any of them, but there’s a “Big Three” for Garcia to fight right around his age, all of them also undefeated, all of them having talked a little toward one another: WBA/IBF/WBO titlist Teofimo Lopez, WBC titlist Devin Haney, and Gervonta Davis.

Garcia has said his main focus is Davis, but the easiest fight to make might be Haney, as Garcia is now his mandatory challenger and both fight on DAZN, Garcia with Golden Boy and Haney with Matchroom. Teofimo, though, is The Guy at 135, The Man, and he is definitely the most ambitious and credible fight out there for anyone.

If you could pick one of the three to see next for Garcia, what would you choose? It can even just be the fight you’re most certain Garcia would lose if that’s still your thing.


Who would YOU pick next for Ryan Garcia?
