VIDEO: Ryan Garcia Back In Gym, Provides Update On Mental Health
Interim WBC Lightweight Champion Ryan Garcia is back in the gym.
Garcia was expected to take on mandatory WBC Title challenger Javier Fortuna this summer. That plan went awry when Garcia pulled out of the fight to focus on his anxiety and depression issues. He has reportedly been replaced by Joseph Diaz Jr.
Garcia took to his Instagram account to post video footage of his return to the gym as well as an update on the state of his mental health.

“Thank you to everyone showing their support! With the help of my support team and my family, I’m making steps forward. Why anxiety and depression hit me like a truck and why I’m still recovering I’ll never know. But I’m trying to cope with the issues I’m having! This bag is my anxiety and I’m swinging with my full intent to destroy it!!”
