Neil the deal show thanks for coming out, yep we’re going to talk a little more about uh.
My five newest fighters in the world, so to speak, the guys that i feel have a big chance of uh having a big future, i mean they’re.
Most of them have less than 20 fights under their belt.
You know what i mean, graham so there’s going to be a lot of room for these guys to uh move up and they’re already champions.
You know like these guys are already champions.
So in my mind, they’re uh they’re doing the right things.
They’Ve got the right.
Uh management teams behind them and uh there are guys that i’d be looking out for these are my uh, my guys in the next few days.
So today we’re talking about my favorite new right now, new uh, california, state, california, kid boxer and his name would be ryan, garcia, graham uh.
You guys know anything about mr garcia well, not personally, but other than he’s a champ yeah yeah he’s the uh right.
He’S the intern wbc world lightweight, champion, right, lightweight, yeah, so uh, i’m sure he’s looking to add to his collection, like the all these young uh hungry guys, uh are so, let’s just go over a little bit about ryan himself.
I i’ve seen a bunch of his fights he’s amazing, very uh, very amazing, uh speed he’s got uh he’s got crazy amounts of energy, that’s for sure, knockout power, great knockout power, like we’ll see with his stats you’ll, see what i’m talking about.
So the guy’s got uh he’s the whole package.
He’S gon na be uh, something to look out for he’s been offered some big big fights already, but his management team, i guess – is in charge of whatever he’s doing so.
In a nutshell, let’s talk a little bit about him guys there.
This is the best of california right on cali love, you guys all right so around the world and in california and everywhere else, ryan garcia.
His nickname is the flash that is one of his nicknames.
So they call him the flash and uh the other one is king, rai, king rai, and i have heard about king rye.
I didn’t know a lot of his buddies.
I guess it’s probably what his i don’t know.
Somebody came up with the flash right and uh.
So that that’s his that’s his nicknames, he was born august 8, 1998.
That makes him 22 years old.
So he’s a very young man uh, but he’s had a fantastic career so far and he’s gon na go really far guys.
So keep your eye out for uh ryan, garcia uh.
He fights in the lightweight division, but he’s uh.
He also fought in the super featherweight division.
He has three sisters, i guess, and a brother and one of his brothers sean he’s also a fighter john garcia.
So maybe we’ll look into sean himself and see how he’s making out as well and uh, he’s ranked right now, the third best lightweight in the world, all right by uh, basically across the board.
You know third, fourth, but he’s he’s literally in there big time, and he is a serious kid, so he started boxing at seven years old.
Graham right, most of these guys – and of course it was his father got him involved right and uh.
Basically, his father still is still in his corner to this day.
Graham right he’s not the head trainer uh, that’s a guy named eddie reynoso, eddie, reynoso and uh.
He also trains, uh canelo renoso eddie right, so they both have the canelo and him have the same trainer and then when they, when they’re in the fights his dad comes, i guess, as a cut man and whatever you want to call it a ring ring assistant.
I guess it’s called right, so he uh, he is his amateur career.
Uh was amazing.
He like i, was just like holy cow, so he’s a 15 time national amateur champion, graham 15 time national champion.
I was like whoa okay.
Now this guy’s got some serious credentials.
Like you know, you don’t hear too many guys ryan, congratulations like that in itself is amazing, guys it’s like wow and uh.
His amateur, total fights and stuff was up crazy.
I really didn’t know he was that active um, but his total fights as an amateur were 230 gram and he won 250 of those fights, so he was uh, 215 wins and 15 losses out of the 230 fights which is which is like an amazing.
That’S amazing! Right 230 fights, 15 losses so 15 time amateur champ like wow.
He decides to turn pro 2016 signed on with golden boy: uh productions: 2016.
Since then, they’ve extended his contract five years from he signed a five-year contract in 2019, so he’ll be in the golden boy productions camp for i’m sure his whole career.
You know they’re not really gon na.
That’S what they do.
That’S what golden boy does so great.
Can’T wait to see him fight and i understand they there there’s a bunch of talk about him, fighting a bunch of different guys, one one being manny pacquiao, but his his trainer, mr ray oso or reynoso, decide decided that you know he they’ll fight anybody that golden Boy tells tells them to fight, but i think golden boy there’s other guys out there.
So we had talked about uh this uh javonte davis, javonte davis, javonta um, there’s another guy named devin henny or haney devin haney he’s another serious guy in the lightweight division and of course we got a tail firmo right in the lightweight division lopez.
So, there’s that lightweight division, honestly guys is stacked with i mean stack stacked with prime uh up and coming boxers.
It’S probably the division that has the most exciting boxers coming.
If you know what i mean graham there’s like so many guys that are really good within that division right now, so the fights will be really exciting in that lightweight division for like years, i’m sure guaranteed.
So his uh pro totals we’ll go over that he got 21 fights pro uh he’s got 21 wins there.
You go and he’s got zero losses.
So fantastic he’s 21-0.
It’S got 18 kos, graham out of those 21 wins which gives him a ko percentage of 86 percent to date.
Right now, guys 86.
We haven’t heard that number very much.
Have we so that’s fantastic right there.
He he averages something like 3.
2 rounds per fight.
His fights haven’t really lasted that long because he is he’s a devastating fighter, so he he just makes quick work of people, and you know right he’s he’s been doing.
It he’s been knocking guys out real early and uh.
Some of his fights are really flashy, so check them all out, he’s also uh, so he had 67 rounds total as a pro, so he’s still young right graeme.
I mean he only has 67 rounds and we talked about what was that glenn wick wore had what 4 200 rounds well.
Ryan has got a few rounds to make up to catch up.
You know what i mean like four thousand and he’s got about.
Three thousand nine hundred and fifty rounds to go and you’ll catch him.
So right now so anyways.
Let’S talk about his notable fights um.
These are the couple that i watched.
Uh – and i i was like wow like he’s – got some serious, serious, uh stuff going on uh.
He fought uh, it was garcia versus uh, luke, campbell, luke campbell’s from britain.
These are all title fights by the way, but i’m not going to let you guys know, watch titles.
You need to go, watch them yourself and figure out what how he’s winning all these titles.
So that’s just one of my things so going forward.
You guys figure it out what he’s winning so luke campbell’s from britain fought him january, 2nd 2021.
So very recent, all right, uh, garcia versus romero, dunno a filipino gentleman uh november, 2nd 2019.
You guys should check out that one juno uh garcia versus jason velez he’s a puerto rican fighter and uh garcia.
Obviously, all these are wins.
These are all wins, but really smashing, knockouts and just blazing stuff.
So and the last one that i liked was uh garcia versus miguel, karazoza karazoza he’s a mexican fighter karazoza that was september 15, 2019.
So he’s uh he’s he’s really guys one of the one of those special kids so keep an eye out for him.
Now to end it all up, graham, i heard this rumbling i’ve been doing.
You know, checking out this kid a little more in the last little bit and uh.
Apparently he said he in an interview.
He said he’d like to box until he’s 26 years old and then he wants to retire and become an mma fighter.
That’S what he’s saying so he’s had this uh back and forth things.
This is how i it kind of clicked in my head.
It was the same guy but uh henry cejudo, who just retired recently, was the uh bantamweight and featherweight uh, flyweight, sorry, flyweight and bantamweight champion in the ufc he retired, with the belts you know and uh apparently ryan’s interested in having some sort of a match against Him so they’ve decided that if they’re going to do it, they’re going to have one boxing match and one mma match like they’re going to have two fights, so each guy gets to fight in his element.
So to speak.
You know what i mean.
Graham it’s interesting.
So ryan basically said yeah, that’s fine! I’M gon na knock him out when we’re boxing, and then he ain’t gon na knock me out.
So he can only submit me is basically what he said.
His only chance is to submit me in in the in the octagon.
So we’ll see, if that comes to you know, comes true and ryan decides you never know man, it’s a long way away right, so uh so yeah great kid, thanks, ryan for everything.
So far, man awesome super awesome thanks.
