Via Matt Lieberman: Ryan Garcia returns this Saturday night from a nightmare 2021 to face Emmanuel Tagoe in the 139 lb. live on DAZN at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
For Ryan’s first bout back in 15 months out of the ring, the 139 arrest weight class was crucial because he didn’t fight. But Ryan is active again, he’s going back to the 135-lb division.
Tagoe won’t go for a walk in the park against 23-year-old Ryan in any way, and if he’s not careful, he’ll lose to the tough boxer from Ghana.
Tagoe has won his last 32 matches and he will be looking to claim his 33rd straight win on Saturday. For Ryan’s sake, you have to hope that his promoters don’t mess up by picking someone a little too nice.
This guy has more stamina than Ryan’s ultimate opponent, Luke Campbell, and he can punch as hard as he does. I’m not saying Tagoe is a big boxer, but so is nampaw Campbell and he beat Ryan in the second round.
Undefeated WBC 2nd place Garcia (21-0, 18 KOs) saw his first bout since last January 2’s match against Luke Campbell.
Ryan is already a superstar and has an entire 135 lb division competing against him, despite failing to retain the world title.
“Now I am at the moment where I’ll do great things when I’m in the ring,” said Ryan Garcia. “I always stalk my opponent, that’s my fighting style, making sure I counterattack. Whenever an opportunity presents itself. ”
As long as Ryan doesn’t want to get involved in one of Tagoe’s big hits, he’ll be fine on Saturday night. It was important for Ryan to get Tagoe out of there as soon as possible to minimize the punishment he received from him.
Tagoe lost his professional debut to little-known Lante Addy in 2004, and he’s won his last 32 games.
Ryan’s huge popularity and fortune is the result of his huge social media following, with millions of fans following him.
King Ry alone has 8.7 million followers on Instagram, which makes it easy for him to attract a large number of viewers every time he fights. For DAZN, letting Ryan fight on their platform would be in their favor.
Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero said: “I think he’s going to get a feel for this guy and knock this guy down. ESNEWS about Ryan Garcia. “Then he was going to fight Jojo Diaz, and I let Ryan beat Jojo Diaz.
“Ryan is older, and he just fought a men’s gold medalist. He’s a better fighter, and you have to realize that [Luke] Campbell is older than Jojo Diaz. So I think Ryan will take him down with no problem.
“He can get Gervonta after I knock him out, and I will help him by loosening his jaw.
“They fought each other many years ago,” Rolly said when asked how Ryan Garcia would go against Vasyl Lomachenko. “Loma doesn’t have that much power.
“He stops people more because of the output [not because of his power]. He didn’t really hit Rigondeaux. Rigondeaux could only be discouraged. Rigondeaux is so small, he weighs 118 pounds. He needs money.
“I have a feeling that Loma will be scared by Ryan’s power, and that he will run around like he did with Teofimo,” Rolly said.
