With a fantastic performance of Ryan Garcia, he has proven that his social media activity has not gotten the better of him. Many doubters called him overrated because he posts a lot of his training videos and that he has not proven to beat top contenders in his division.
He has answers for the haters saying that he earns not only in boxing but he also earns millions on his social media. He just won the WBC Interim Belt, which means he is now a legit major champion who is the mandatory challenger against Devin Haney.
After his brutal body shot against Luke Campbell, to come back from a devastating knockdown against an Olympic gold medalist boxer is not an easy task to do. To stay composed after a knockdown in just the second round shows that he has an elite mentality.
Not every boxer can come back with such an adversary. There is no doubt that Garcia learned a lot from this fight and could improve his defense even more. It was his biggest flaw but he showed that his speed and power are legit that even Campbell respected when he got a taste of it.
It was the first stoppage loss for Campbell, even Lomachenko and Jorge Linares could not stop Campbell. Although Garcia does not look like the power puncher, his speed and power could knock anyone out. People underestimate him due to his activity in his IG account but once they get in the ring with him, it is a different world.
One other thing that Garcia has is, he has no fear. He has called out Gervonta Davis and Devin Haney right after his win against Campbell. He is the one looking for tough competition, which is similar to Teofimo Lopez.
According to some reports, WBC is looking to push through Devin Haney vs Ryan Garcia. It is a good stylistic matchup for both fighters since both are highly skilled in their own aspect. Haney is not known to be a power puncher but has good fundamentals and even his defense is decent. Ryan Garcia has over the top speed and has laser-sharp punches but needs to work on his defense.
