The World Boxing Hall of Fame (WBHF) and the International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) are the two internationally recognized institutions that recognize and honor the contributions of boxers and others to martial arts. Some of the introductory members are Muhammad Ali, Joe Loius, and Ezzard Charles. These have fought their way to the top. Apart from the veterans, several newcomers to the profession are currently fighting for their names to hopefully be inducted into the Hall of Fame as well. Ryan Garcia is one of them.
Undoubtedly, Ryan is one of the best professional boxers, and he shows great promise. Since his debut in 2016, he has not lost a single fight.
Ryan Garcia Bio (Age)
Ryan Garcia is an American of Mexican descent, born on August 8, 1998, to Henry and Lisa Garcia. His father once dreamed of becoming a boxer (like his brother Sergio Garcia), but decided otherwise and became a coach instead. He started training Ryan at the age of 7 and also trained his younger son, Sean Garcia, and Ryan’s best friend, Lawrence The Dawg King – a middleweight pro. Sean made his professional debut in 2017, fighting in the super bantamweight class.
Ryan trained for a long time with his father, brother, friend, and uncle, who left boxing when he got married. Besides Sean, he has three other younger siblings (sisters). The boxer and his brother continue to enjoy amazing support from both their mother and father, who happen to be US (amateur), boxing officials.
Born in Victorville, California, the boxer is currently based in Los Angeles. He is known for his amazing professional performance and is also very popular in social media. At the time of writing this article, he has over 104,000 followers on Twitter, which he joined in June 2016. The Flash, as he is affectionately known, also has a huge fan base on Instagram of about 1.3 million.
This guy is always looking for ways to give something back to society and has made a number of philanthropic donations. In 2017, he presented new gym equipment and $1,000 to the Boxing Club in High Desert.
His Boxing Career
Ryan Garcia fights in the super featherweight class. He made his professional debut on June 9, 2016, in a fight against Edgar Meza, which he won in the first round after a TKO. The fight took place in Tijuana, Baja, California. During his career as an amateur, he already had a boxing record of 215-15.
The Flash also boasted 14 different national titles. He took first place in the Silver Gloves, National Pals, Junior Golden Gloves, and even in the Junior Olympics. At the Junior World Championships in 2014, he took second place. Ryan ‘Kingry’ Garcia was signed by Golden Boy Promotions in 2016 under the direction of Oscar De La Hoya. The boxer is currently ranked 24th out of 1478 in the world and 4th out of 174 in the USA. Of his 16 fights, 13 were won by knockout (KOs).
In his professional career, he has also fought with Hector Garcia, Luis Lozano, Christian Cruz, Jonathan Cruz, Mario Aguirre, Jose Antonio Martinez, Tyrone Luckey, Mario Macias, Cesar Alan Valenzuela, Noe Martinez Raygoza, Fernando Vargas, and Jayson Velez. Ryan won the NABF Junior Super Featherweight title in 2017 and kept it even after two competitions. On May 4, 2018, he won both the NABO and NABF Super Featherweight titles.
A truly amazing victory was his fight with Miguel Carrizoza in 2017, where he knocked him out in less than 30 seconds. On September 1, 2018, he fought with Carlos Morales at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California. Ryan emerged as the winner after the 10th round by a major decision. Although he won, the game was described by many as lackluster – it did not match the hype it had created.
Net Worth – How Rich Is He?
Ryan definitely has a lot to do if he wants to remain unbeaten and fulfill his dream of winning the Olympics. Nevertheless, it cannot be denied that his boxing has enriched him. Several numbers were mentioned as the total value of his wealth, but we couldn’t prove any of them.
Height and Weight
The Flash is 178 cm (5 feet 11 inches) tall, and since it competes in the lightweight junior class, its weight should be between 57 and 59 kg.
