Fast rising super featherweight/lightweight prospect Ryan "The Flash" Garcia was in the building for Canelo Alvarez's majority decision victory over Gennady Golovkin last Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Prior to the fight Golovkin's trainer Abel Sanchez pleaded with Alvarez to not "run" and to stand and fight against his hard hitting pupil.
Alvarez stated several times in the lead up to the fight that he would indeed stand his ground and go after Golovkin.
The 20-year-old Garcia was very impressed with Canelo's performance.
"It is actually a beautiful thing that he really did what he said he was going to do. He did it," said Garcia.
As far as what is next for Garcia, he said that he will return to the ring before the end of the year. He last fought on September 1st when he won a hard fought majority decision over Carlos Morales. He is 3-0 in 2018 with 1 knockout.
"I will be back in December. I love growing and I just want to see where I can go. I just have to keep working hard. It is a beautiful thing," Garcia told BoxingScene.com.
Over 21,000 fans packed the T-Mobile Arena for Alvarez-Golovkin 2 and even though he is very popular himself and has a huge social media following, Garcia was very impressed with the turnout.
"In a couple more years I look at myself and see I could get to this level. I mean I already have a big fan base and sell out arenas already but this is on a whole other level but I know in another year or two years I will get here," said Garcia.
