Ryan Garcia: I'm Going To Beat Linares, Beat Davis, Beat Haney!

In the main event at The Honda Center in Anaheim, California, fans witnessed rising lightweight sensation Ryan Garcia (20-0,17 KOs) earn yet another first-round knockout of Francisco Fonseca (25-3-2, 19 KOs) to remain undefeated.

Garcia’s lightening hand speed and combinations lead him to an impressive victory that further proves he’s ready for a world title shot.

“It was good. It didn’t last that long, but I watched a video of Sugar Ray Robinson and he did this fake, and threw the perfect left hook. I saw it and went for the left hook. Thought it was going to go longer, not going to lie. I respect Fonseca and thank him for the opportunity," Garcia said.

“I saw the left hook, it was there. I just had to commit and caught him in between the shot. It’s called the  perfect left hook. You have been watching me since I was 17 years old. I’m 21, I’m a late bloomer. I’m ready for everyone and I’m comfortable. I’m ready to go after everyone. I’m turned up, let’s go!”

On fighting Devin Haney: “We had great fights in the amateurs. Much respect, he got love in the game. We need to get this going. We’re good fighters. Let’s fight!”

On what’s next: “If Linares had a good performance I said I’d fight him. Let’s get it on. I had a plan for 2020 to fight everyone, so I’m going to beat Linares, beat [Gervonta] Davis, and then beat Devin.”

Earlier in the evening, Jorge Linares (47-5, 29 KOs) knocked out Carlos Morales (19-5-4, 8 KOs) in a thrilling lightweight battle, and Alexis Rocha (16-0, 10 KOs) defeated Brad Solomon (28-3, 9 KOs) after going the distance to remain undefeated. To open the night, the highly entertaining Blair Cobbs (14-0, 9 KOs) had his hand raised after a split decision victory over Samuel Kotey (23-3, 16 KOs).

Garcia should solely focus on Linares, as somebody stated here already, that fight will answer a lot of questions. If he manages to somehow blow Linares out of the water (possible) then this kid is the real deal.

[QUOTE=Luilun;20392456]Ryan should fight Tank or Haney they are less risk. fighting Linares is far more riskier[/QUOTE] Please step out of your car. This is an official sobriety check
