Who ought to Ryan Garcia battle subsequent? Richard Commey? ⋆ Boxing Information 24
March 25, 2021
By Sean Jones: Ryan Garcia has but to determine who his subsequent opponent shall be after he misplaced out on his most popular fights in opposition to Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis and Manny Pacquiao.
The extremely standard WBC interim light-weight champion Ryan is coming off a seventh spherical knockout win over Luke Campbell on January 2nd on DAZN. He must return to the ring quickly to maintain his momentum going.
Regardless of having a golden alternative to problem WBC 135-lb champion Devin Haney, the finicky Ryan Garcia rejected that battle, saying he solely needs to face Pacquiao or Gervonta Davis.
Sadly, Ryan has gotten neither of these bouts, and he’s sitting inactive, doing little apart from his Instagram posting.
Ryan’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions, mentioned he’d be assembly with him this week to provide him a path to a world title and superstardom.
The 22-year-old King Ryan (21-0, 18 KOs) may have fought Tank Davis, however he shifted his consideration to Pacquiao. That battle didn’t occur for no matter cause.
At this level, it’s unclear if Ryan is stubbornly ready for what many boxing followers view as a cash-out for him in opposition to Pacquiao or Tank or if he’s critical about desirous to face the very best at 135.
Ought to Ryan Garcia battle Richard Commey?
“I feel Richard Commey makes good sense,” mentioned Sergio Mora to DAZN on who Ryan Garcia ought to battle subsequent.
“He’s solely been stopped one time, and that was perhaps the very best light-weight, Teofimo Lopez. That makes essentially the most sense for the highest contender in Ryan Garcia himself in with a former champion like Commey.
It’s a superb battle to remain busy after which journey it out till the autumn to the place he can battle the winner of Linares and Haney.”
Former IBF light-weight champion Commey (30-3, 27 KOs) is a way more harmful battle for Ryan than his final contest in opposition to Luke Campbell. We noticed in that battle that Campbell was in a position to damage Ryan, dropping him laborious within the second spherical.
It’s a thriller why Luke didn’t try to complete Ryan after he had him badly damage as a result of the chance was there. It’s truthful to say that if the 34-year-old Commey places Ryan in the identical place, he’ll probably end him.
Ryan’s promoter De La Hoya probably received’t be enthusiastic about letting him battle a slugger like Commey, though Teofimo Lopez not too long ago stopped him within the second spherical in December 2019.
First off, Teofimo is principally a 140-pounder masquerading as a 135-lb fighter, and he’s enormous for the load class.
Secondly, Teofimo is extra polished than Ryan Garcia is at this level regardless of the 2 being roughly the identical age.
For these causes, Teofimo was able to tackle a fighter puncher like Commey as a result of he had the type, technical potential, and chin to beat him. In distinction, Ryan is lacking in all these areas, and he’s clearly NOT prepared for Commey, which is why De La Hoya will probably reject the thought of him taking that battle.
De La Hoya has one thing particular for Ryan Garcia
“Now we have one thing particular in line for Ryan. I’m utilizing down with him subsequent week, and I’m going to current him a plan that can take him to world title standing and to superstardom,” mentioned La Hoya to DAZN about Ryan Garcia. “Now we have to be very sensible in how we plan out his profession.”
The wording that De La Hoya makes use of in speaking about Ryan means that he’s somebody that he must take a cautious strategy.
One doesn’t get the sense that De La Hoya will take dangers with Ryan in the identical manner that he’s gung-ho about with the rugged welterweight Vergil Ortiz Jr. Oscar is able to let Vergil tackle WBO 147-lb champion Terence Crawford.
With Ryan Garcia, we’ll in all probability see him provided fights in opposition to considered one of these guys for his subsequent outing:
It’s going to be somebody that has been overwhelmed earlier than and never an enormous risk to beat Ryan.
