After taking some time off to deal with mental health issues, which included canceling a July 9 fight with Javier Fortuna, Ryan Garcia recently stated that he’s getting ready for a return to boxing, and added a bit more via social media this week.
“I’ve been going through a hard time lately, but I’ve been seeing some stuff that’s being said about me, my character,” Garcia said on Instagram. “Just know I’m coming back with a vengeance, coming to destroy all that, everything being said about me, who I am as a fighter. I’m gonna show you why I’m the one not to play with. Let’s go, baby.”
The 22-year-old Garcia (21-0, 18 KO) was last in the ring on Jan. 2, kicking off 2021 in boxing with a big win over Luke Campbell, where “Kingry” got off the canvas in round two to come back and stop Campbell in round seven.
This week, Garcia has been seen at Mayweather-Paul events, constantly picking Logan Paul to knock Mayweather out:
We’ll see what Garcia does next. A summer fight could happen, or he could wait until the fall to return. No idea what sort of opponent he’ll want to face, if they might go for something big, take a sideways step from Campbell, or take a softer touch.
