De La Hoya Aims For Garcia Title Fight In 2020
On Valentine’s Day, love will not be in the air for Ryan Garcia, as he defends his WBC silver lightweight title inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
Garcia headlines the DAZN broadcasted card against Francisco Fonseca which promoter Oscar De La Hoya feels will be the next step for Garcia to get a world title shot.
“Hopefully we don’t see a lot of broken hearts, but hopefully we’ll see a broken nose. This will be a great night for Ryan Garcia. He’s in with a tough opponent. This year will be his coming-out party,” De La Hoya said.
“I think he’ll be a world champion by the end of the year. He’s getting stronger, faster, and wiser. For Ryan, we want the best for him. Ryan in a world title fight against a top fighter for 2020.”
