Ryan Garcia is more self-assured than ever, even after losing. The well-known fighter's objective has not changed, and he has made clear that he intends to stay in the junior welterweight division. After Frank Martin's most recent victory and Errol Spence's impending July 29 undisputed championship match against Terence 'Bud' Crawford, Garcia travelled to Las Vegas with trainer Derrick James' crew to continue his training.
The native of California aspires to add to the impressive resumes of his well-established stablemates. He has moved to Dallas to work full-time with James as his new head trainer. His first priority is to take on WBA 140-pound champion Rolando "Rolly" Romero.
“I’m ready to get at it at 140,” Garcia told Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) host Ray Flores while in Vegas for Spence’s recent media workout. “Bring on Rollies. He’s part of PBC. I already ran it once, didn’t get my get-back. But I’m gonna beat Rolly’s ass. We’re gonna have that, at 140.”
A purse bid hearing will be held this coming Monday regarding Romero's required championship defence against Ohara Davies of England.
In each of his last three fights, Garcia has gone over the lightweight limit. The most recent occurred on April 22 during a high-grossing Showtime Pay-Per-View fight against Baltimore's Gervonta 'Tank' Davis (29-0, 27KOs), which took place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
