Ryan Garcia has been making waves online, boldly claiming to be the face of the sport. The 25-year-old is set to face WBC super lightweight champion Devin Haney on April 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, in a highly anticipated match broadcasted live on DAZN pay-per-view.

Garcia's online presence has played a significant role in enhancing his profile in recent months. In an interview with DAZN's YouTube channel, Garcia expressed confidence, stating,

"This is the time, I feel like I am stepping into my prime. I feel like in my heart, I am the face of boxing."

He attributes his widespread appeal to his ability to transcend boxing, with people discussing not just his fights but also his personal life. Garcia's popularity is such that any move he makes can become viral content, adding to his status as a cultural phenomenon.

Despite his immense popularity, Garcia has yet to win a world title, leading some to question his claim as the face of boxing. However, he has garnered attention for his one-punch knockout power, often finishing opponents in the first or second round. This ability has contributed to his status as a social media sensation, with fans eagerly following his career progression.

Garcia's upcoming bout against Haney presents a significant challenge, as Haney boasts an undefeated record and is a two-division world champion. However, Garcia remains undaunted, seeing this fight as an opportunity to solidify his status as a world champion and, ultimately, as the face of boxing. He believes that victory on April 20 will propel him to the forefront of the sport, surpassing even the likes of Saul Alvarez, also known as 'Canelo.'

Garcia's confidence is palpable as he prepares to face Haney, knowing that a win would not only secure him a world title but also cement his place as a boxing icon. As the date of the fight approaches, fans eagerly anticipate seeing if Garcia can indeed back up his bold claims and stake his claim as the new face of boxing.
