Ryan Garcia Returns with a Bang
American boxing sensation Ryan Garcia made a triumphant comeback to the ring, defeating Oscar Duarte by stoppage in the eighth round. Garcia, who had not fought since his loss to Gervonta Davis in April, put on an impressive display in their 143lb catchweight bout in Houston, Texas.
Victory by Stoppage
Garcia, 25, showed his dominance in the fight by trapping Duarte, 27, in the corner and unleashing a flurry of punches that sent the Mexican fighter to the canvas. Although Duarte attempted to get back on his feet, the referee waved off the bout, granting Garcia the win.
A Call-Out to Romero
Following his victory, Garcia wasted no time in calling out his old rival Rolando Romero for a shot at the WBA super-lightweight title. Garcia expressed his commitment to becoming a world champion and challenged Romero to step up and face him.
Romero's Controversial Title Win
Romero, 28, currently holds the WBA super-lightweight title after a controversial stoppage victory against Venezuelan veteran Ismael Barroso. Garcia did not hold back in his taunts, referencing Romero's win and urging him not to "fake it."
Romero's Cryptic Response
Romero, who is currently sidelined due to an injury, responded cryptically to Garcia's call-out. On X, formerly known as Twitter, Romero posted, "What the f*** did I just watch?" He followed it up with another tweet, stating, "Rolly by murder in the first."
Garcia vs. Romero would undoubtedly be an explosive matchup, with both fighters eager to prove themselves in the ring. Boxing fans will be eagerly waiting to see if this highly anticipated world title fight becomes a reality.
