Ryan Garcia's Surprised Reaction to Rolly Romero's Fight Announcement

The well-known social media boxing phenom Ryan Garcia revealed on social media today how shocked and disappointed he was to find that WBA light welterweight champion Rolando "Rolly" Romero will be facing Isaac "Pitbull" Cruz for the championship. Garcia was surprised by the fight, which was slated for March 30th on Amazon Prime PPV in Las Vegas. He had assumed that he would be Rolly's next opponent.

Pitbull Cruz (25-2-1, 17 KOs) is a lightweight contender, and Rolly (15-1, 13 KOs) and his staff chose him for what may be Rolly's first and last defence of his WBA 140-pound title. Due to this choice, Garcia—who has an amazing 11 million Instagram followers—had to reconsider his future course of action in the boxing scene.

"Hey, I was told the deal was done and will be made public in the next few days." That was obviously a lie, Ryan Garcia stated, looking visibly irritated. Notwithstanding the loss, Garcia is still dedicated to his profession and excited to announce his upcoming bout, which he promises will be a major DAZN Boxing event.

For Garcia, not getting into a brawl with Rolly might turn out to be a lucky break. A fight with Rolly, according to critics, would validate rumours that Garcia is avoiding genuine challengers in the 140-pound class. Garcia now has the chance to show his mettle against stronger opponents, including as former WBC and WBO champion Jose Ramirez, IBF light welterweight champion Subriel Matias, or other strong competitors in the division.

Ryan Garcia believes that the only way to move ahead is to overcome the stigma of being a "fake social media fighter" and show bravery and talent while facing elite opponents. He may reinvent his image and become a legitimate contender in the boxing world with a victory against a fearsome and well-respected opponent like Subriel Matias.

In boxing, Ryan Garcia's path is still one of the most avidly followed. What he does from here on out will decide whether he becomes a social media sensation or a feared and respected boxer.
