A 21-year-old American bounced his opponent’s head off the canvas with a left hook knockdown on Friday, and the boxing industry is saying “a new star is born.”
Golden Boy Promotions phenom Ryan Garcia has long been touted as a poster boy for boxing.
The Californian looks like a baby-faced assassin, has blisteringly fast hands, and, on February 14 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, showed the world that highlight-reel power lurks within his gloves.
In the very first round of a fight against Francisco Fonseca, Garcia needed only a handful of punches to end the fight, and the shot that closed the show was a single left hook that landed plush on the side of the chin.
As Fonseca fell, with his head bouncing off the canvas and his arms in the air, Garcia performed a cut-throat gesture before nonchalantly walking to a neutral corner.
The fight was over. He had won.
