Ryan Garcia vs Emmanuel Tagoe live streaming press conference (March 1)

Ryan Garcia’s return is set, and he meets up with Emmanuel Tagoe at today’s press conference.

Ryan Garcia and Emmanuel Tagoe meet up at their press conference today

Ryan Garcia’s return is set, as the much-hyped and much-doubted lightweight prospect will return to the ring in an April 9 main event on DAZN, facing Emmanuel Tagoe in a 12-round bout.

Garcia and Tagoe will make it fully official today, and give their thoughts at the kick-off press conference, which will stream live in the video up top at 6:30 pm ET.

Garcia (21-0, 18 KO) hasn’t fought since Jan. 2, 2021, when he beat Luke Campbell, coming off the canvas to stop the former Olympic gold medalist for a career-best win. Set dates with Javier Fortuna and Joseph Diaz Jr both fell through last year, and April’s bout will end a 15-month inactive run for the 23-year-old star.

Tagoe (32-1, 15 KO) will be a major underdog. The 33-year-old veteran from Ghana has been on the fringes of real contender status in the division for years now, fighting almost exclusively in his home country. He didn’t exactly turn a bunch of heads with his last bout, a Nov. 2020 majority decision win over Mason Menard in Florida. But this is a huge opportunity for him, obviously.
