Ryan Garcia and Golden Boy Promotions are now on better terms following their recent legal troubles.
That is according to the President of Golden Boy Promotions Eric Gomez. Both sides have been at loggerheads ever since Garcia alleged that his contract had been breached. The boxer stressed that his contract made it possible for him to fight on any network via PPV. However, for the Gervonta Davis fight, reports stressed that Garcia was informed that DAZN had to broadcast it because of an agreement with Golden Boy. A court battle and a period of mediation followed, which appears to have improved the situation.
“You know if you get together and talk and communicate, you’d be surprised how much you can get through to people and give your point of view and he gave his point of view. I think we’re at a place now where we can move forward and keep working. Look, we were able to get December done.
“And he wants to keep fighting and he wants to fight the best and we want to keep promoting his fights. So that’s what we’re going to do. Look, at the end of the day, he’s a professional, we’re professionals, Oscar’s a professional as well, and we can put all that stuff to the side and keep moving forward and do business,” Gomez stated
It is not exactly clear if Garcia will continue to stay with Golden Boy in the long run. However, the news will be welcomed as he prepares to take on Oscar Duarte on December 2nd, 2023. And provided that he comes out with a win, then a shot at a junior welterweight world title may follow.
Slightly open ended but it sounds like progress has been made and hopefully Golden Boy and Garcia can continue working together. It’s the perfect fit for Garcia imo.https://t.co/9vXMPxBdaA

i don't know why Ryan was acting so eager to join PBC. That Al Haymon protection plan is not worth the years of inactivity!

I agree with you once again especially your last sentence. I am in the minority but I believe Oscar is underrated as an promoter. Every major figure in boxing of the last 30 years has benefited from DLH or personally put them over Arum, Floyd, Pac, Canelo, Haymon, etc.
