Ryan Garcia Accepts the Challenge From Rolly Romero

WBA Regular junior welterweight champion Rolando “Rolly” Romero (15-1, 13KO) may finally get his wish to fight “King” Ryan Garcia (23-1, 19KO) next. Apparently, the Californian has grown tired of Romero’s antics and decided to take him up on the offer to fight. Not to be outdone, the WBA champion wasted little time in hinting that the fight is a go.

Ryan Garcia and Rolly Romero agree to fight

Rolly has been calling for a fight with Garcia since winning the belt in controversial fashion against Ismael Barroso on May 13. In the post-fight interview, he quickly dropped the names of multi-divisional champion Gervonta Davis and Garcia.

The WBA champion has recently gone after King over past issues with depression and the loss to Davis. Garcia has recently made the news in teaming up with 3Kings Boxing’s 2022 Trainer of the Year Derrick James.

If they are to fight, the next question is: will it be for the title? The WBA ordered the winner of Romero-Barroso must face mandatory challenger Ohara Davies within 120 days of winning the title.

As of the writing of this article, there has been no change in the narrative from the WBA. Plus, Davies has made it clear that he doesn’t plan on stepping aside.

Rolando Romero and Garcia know each other very well, as old footage of a sparring session went viral a couple of years ago. Plus, they both suffered their first defeat by a common foe in Davis. It will be interesting to see where things go now that both fighters are on the same page in wanting the fight.
