Ryan Garcia (19-0) faces Francisco Fonseca (25-2-2) for the WBC silver lightweight title. Garcia is coming of his most impressive victory to date when he stopped Romero Duno in the 5th round. Fonseca only has 2 losses and both of them came against high caliber opponents in Tevin Farmer and Gervonta Davis. In his last fight he was held to a draw against unheralded Alex Dilmaghani from the UK. Fonseca does have 25 wins on his resumé but they all have come against poor opposition. Ryan Garcia is being promoted very well by Golden Boy Promotions and he is already very popular and a big draw. If this fight goes the distance it will be difficult for Fonseca to get the nod.
Garcia is very talented and will look tremendous against Fonseca. Gervonta Davis was able to put Fonseca away, Tevin Farmer wasn’t. Garcia´s confidence is at an all time high and he looks to be improving a lot working with Eddy Reynoso. We believe that Ryan Garcia will be the 2nd person to stop Francisco Fonseca. The Pick is Ryan Garcia to win by ko/tko.
The Pick: Ryan Garcia by ko/tko
