By Dan Ambrose: Oscar De La Hoya says Ryan Garcia can be coming again on November 18th in opposition to a “prime man,” doubtlessly in Los Angeles.
De La Hoya factors out that it’s necessary to select the best opponent for the not too long ago knocked out 25-year-old Ryan (23-1,19 KOs), given what occurred to him final April when he stepped it up in opposition to Gervonta Davis.
There had been discuss not too long ago about Ryan dealing with Ohara Davies (25-2, 18 KOs) for the WBA mild welterweight title, on condition that the present champion, Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero, is on the shelf with an undisclosed harm. That’s the man that Ryan wished, however that may’t occur.
Ohara is ranked #1 WBA at 140, however he’s extra of a domestic-level British fighter than a real top-tier contender. If Ryan can’t beat him, it will be an indication that he lacks the products to compete with upper-tier guys.
If he can’t even beat a fighter of Ohara’s stage, it will present that Ryan isn’t minimize out to battle on the world stage.
“We’re at the moment engaged on a venue, however California taxes are killing us,” stated Oscar De La Hoya to Combat Hub TV when requested when Ryan Garcia can be preventing subsequent.
“It will depend on the opponent and on what Ryan desires. We’ll be speaking to him shortly, however we’re gunning for November 18th, reside on DAZN. Hopefully, it’ll be in LA, however we don’t know.
“Not but. I can’t actually say anyone, or they add one other zero behind the negotiations,” stated De La Hoya when requested if he has anyone in thoughts for Ryan’s subsequent battle.
“We’ll get a prime man. Look, Ryan is coming off a knockout loss. So me as a promoter, we’ve to verify what’s finest for his profession, and match him up appropriately and produce him again, after which go after the massive gun,” stated De La Hoya.
If De La Hoya is critical about getting a prime 15 contender for Ryan Garcia to battle on November 18th, he’ll have to be cautious as a result of he’s fragile. Even the bottom-level contenders at 140 are harmful punchers who’ve the facility to cease Ryan with physique pictures.
Choice for Ryan Garcia subsequent battle
“We now have that outdated saying, ‘It’s robust to rise up and do highway work early within the morning while you’re sleeping in silk sheets,’ and Ryan Garcia has been a millionaire by 23 years outdated,” stated Chris Algieri to ProBox TV about Ryan Garcia, Golden Boy Promotions #1 money-maker of their secure.
“He hasn’t been one of many guys who needed to battle, and you understand he got here up within the amateurs. He’s very excessive stage, and he fought all one of the best guys, so he’s there.
“He’s been a fighter, nevertheless it looks as if cash could make you mushy a bit of bit, and it looks as if that is likely to be the case with what’s occurring with Ryan Garcia, now in reference to this potential match-up with Ohara Davies.
“Yeah, he’s a stable man; he’s a stable British man. His losses are to Jack Catterall and to Josh Taylor. So these are two prime guys within the junior welterweight division. So if Ryan goes to essentially deal with the highest guys at 140, he must get previous a man like Ohara Davies.
“Yeah, and why would he not do it? It’s a title battle in opposition to a man who most likely isn’t on the world class stage the best way that clearly Tank Davis is, clearly the best way Josh Taylor is.
“He bought stopped by Josh. He bought outboxed by Jack Catterall. So yeah, the battle makes quite a lot of sense. I feel that is from the fallout of Rolly Romero as a result of he had that title, after which he was speculated to battle Ohara Davies, and I feel that fell by means of. So now Ryan will get an opportunity to be a world champion.
“That’s the factor folks overlook. Ryan’s by no means been a world champion. He wasn’t a World Champion 135. He’s moved as much as 140 now, and that is going to be his title alternative. The battle makes quite a lot of sense, and the man is succesful, so I feel it’s an excellent battle.
“We’re going to see if Ryan has any longevity on this sport. He’s going to need to look good on this battle,” stated Algieri.
“But when he’s getting a shot after Rolly’s been stripped. Has he been stripped?” stated Paulie Malignaggi about Rolly Romero.
“I feel so,” stated Algieri.
“How are you getting a shot after a loss? Is that one of many guidelines that they only determined to interrupt every time they wish to? You’ll be able to’t battle for a world title coming off a loss, however in some instances, you’ll be able to. We’re again to the identical dialog time and again like Groundhog Day right here,” stated Malignaggi.
