Is Ryan Garcia Considering Moving Forward Without Golden Boy?

In his last prizefight, lightweight boxer “King” Ryan Garcia (23-1, 19 KO’s) suffered his first professional loss. This setback came by way of seventh round knockout at the hands of Regular WBA 135-pound champion Gervonta Davis. To make matters worse, his promotional team, Golden Boy Promotions (GBP), left him nearly completely unrepresented during the post-fight media obligations. This led to talks that perhaps everything was not kosher between Garcia and GBP.

Aiding that narrative, King Ryan has doubled down on the fact that his future is not written. In a recent interview, GBP founder Oscar De La Hoya stated that despite the loss, his company knew how to rebuild Garcia into an even better fighter. This is when King Ryan reposted the comment on his Twitter page. However, he let it be known that he was keeping all his options open.

While Garcia may have lost the match, he certainly still had a great night. This came in the form of the rather high number of pay-per-view buys the Davis fight secured. The beneficial numbers were just one more reminder than Ryan Garcia is a formidable draw in the sport. With this being the case, again, even with the loss, he still remains a product in high demand.

So, if he was thinking about jumping ship, King Ryan definitely would not have any trouble finding a new promotional home. Clearly, Garcia is mulling this possibility over. Luckily, regardless of how he decides to steer his career, 3Kings Boxing will be here to report all the latest developments.
