Ryan Garcia returned to the ring and stayed undefeated, going the 12-round distance for the first time in a win over Emmanuel Tagoe in tonight’s DAZN main event.

Garcia (22-0, 18 KO) took the fight on scores of 118-109, 119-108, and 119-108. Bad Left Hook had the full shutout, two separate cards of 120-107, but those are unofficial, of course.

Garcia, 23, hadn’t fought since the calendar turned over from 2020 to 2021, when he got off the canvas to stop Luke Campbell. He pulled out of fights last summer and last fall, and also underwent hand surgery and parted with trainer Eddy Reynoso.

Tonight was his first outing with Joe Goossen in his corner, and it will be criticized for sure, mostly because he went the distance and didn’t flash much SUPERSTAR! stuff, but there were things to like in here, too.

We’ll have more on Garcia vs Tagoe and the rest of the card shortly, but for now, some highlights from the main event.
