Ryan Garcia Promises KO: I'll End Jayson Velez in Four or Less!

By Miguel Rivera

Ryan Garcia (14-0, 13 KO) is looking to make a statement at StubHub Center in Carson, California.

This Friday, Garcia will return to the ring against seasoned Puerto Rican contender Jayson Velez (26-4-1, 18 KOs) in the 10-round main event in the super featherweight division.

The contest will be televised by ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes as part of the Golden Boy on ESPN series.

Garcia will be supported by a lot of local fans at ringside. He wants to put on a show for them.

"This is going to be an amazing event. This will be another step in my legacy, and I look forward to a world-changing fight. It doesn't matter how much experience Jayson Velez has. I'm going to fight the way I fight, whether he fought for a world title or not. I'm going to see how he fights, and I'll know what to do," Garcia said. 

Velez has never been stopped in his career and he's fought for a world title in the past, and coming off a knockout victory over former champion Juan Manuel Lopez.

Despite that, Garcia believes that he's going to end the fight pretty early. He does not expect Velez to last any further than four rounds.

"I've noticed that he drops his hand a lot, so I'm going to feint to the body and catch him with my left hook. This fight is going to end in the fourth round. I may end it early, but I say it'll end in the fourth round. The knockout doesn't have to be with one punch because I also know how to end fights with a barrage and force the referee to end it. These two belts [NABF and NABO Super Featherweight Titles] will be on the line, and I know the the next fight will be for a world title," Garcia said.
