Ryan Garcia Fight Record
Ryan Garcia Weight, Stats & Bio
A native of California, the 5-10, 135-pound pugilist picked up the sport when he was seven years old and never looked back. He was already a proven winner before he turned pro in 2016 because of his impressive amateur record of 215 wins and 15 losses on his way to becoming a 15-time national champion.
These outstanding achievements immediately caught the attention of Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions who signed the wonderkid.
Ryan Garcia Fight History
Garcia quickly piled up the wins and fought seven times in seven months in 2016, where he recorded six stoppages in all of those bouts, with his bout against Christian Cruz Chacon the only one going the distance.
“King Ry” was as active as he was the following year after competing in six fights, but this time, he made sure to finish them all via KO/TKOs.
In 2018, the American of Mexican descent fought four times and collected four victories over Fernando Vargas Parra (first-round knockout), Jayson Valdez (unanimous decision), Carlos Morales (majority decision win) and Braulio Rodriguez (fifth-round knockout) to secure his 17th career victory.
From there, he went on to face the toughest opponents in his career so far.
First, he dispatched Puerto Rico’s Jose Lopez within two rounds in their April 2019 fight. Then Garcia gave the Filipino slugger Romero Duno his first taste of a defeat when he knocked him out in one round in November 2019 to win the vacant WBC Lightweight title, before knocking out Francisco Fonseca in their February 2020 matchup to claim the WBC Silver Lightweight Title.
The biggest test by far in his young career came in his last outing against Luke Campbell when they crossed paths in January 2021.
The 23-year old suffered his first-ever professional knockdown when Campbell connected a perfectly-timed hook that caught him right in the chin, downing him in the second round.

However, the setback awakened the undefeated fighter as he composed himself and turned the tide in the match by eventually stopping the Englishman in the seventh round through a powerful shot to the liver to send Campbell down for good.
After beating Campbell, Garcia added two more wins over Emmanuel Tagoe (unanimous decision in April 2022) and Javier Fortuna (sixth-round knockout in July 2022) before sustaining that seventh-round TKO loss from Gervonta Davis.
