Ryan Garcia Hopes To Return To The Ring in September

By Ryan Burton

LAS VEGAS - Top lightweight prospect Ryan "The Flash" Garcia (18-0) last fought in March when he stopped Jose Lopez in 3 rounds in Southern California. 

The 20-year-old was in Las Vegas this past weekend to watch Manny Pacquiao's split decision victory over the previously unbeaten Keith Thurman.  Garcia was very impressed with the 40-year-old's performance.

"Manny is still one of the biggest icons in the world. He fought amazing. I am just happy to see him still on the top level doing his thing," Garcia stated after the fight.

As for his next move, Garcia said that he plans on returning to return this summer now that he has sorted out his managerial problems.

"I am hoping to be back in the ring in September but first I need to make sure everything is right.  I released my manager so right now I have no manager but everything is getting corrected so when I get back in the ring I will get what I deserve," Garcia told

Garcia is very happy with the work he has done with Eddy Reynoso, who is best known for being the head trainer of Canelo Alvarez.  The two hooked up late last year and Garcia has knocked out both of his opponents that he has faced working under the guidance of Reynoso.

"My journey with them is just getting started. I have only had 2 fights with them but I feel so much better and so much more confident so it is just going to get even better from here," Garcia stated.

[QUOTE=RingGuru;19926430]Rumor has it Garcia lawyered up. Wouldn't be suprised if he leaves Golden Boy - maybe not right now, but in the near future. Who do you think gave Garcia floor seats to the Pacquiao fight? With four of GBP's…

Ever since Garcia started training with the Reynosos he all of a sudden thinks he’s unbeatable. Come on dude you don’t have two fights with a new trainer and expect to magically transform into an unstoppable force. You only look…
