Garcia: 'We'll meet Tank at super lightweight'
“I felt much better at this weight,” said Ryan "KingRye" Garcia after his dominant victory over Javier Fortuna in a fight that took place in the super lightweight division. - I'm not going to return to lightweight now just like that. But next I will fight Tank, if he wants, at 140 pounds. I will definitely write down all the negotiations so that you do not say that I avoided the meeting. I want this fight because it will give me the respect I deserve. I am never afraid. I have a competitive spirit and you will see how it will show when I fight Tank and kick his ass.”
“I know that I showed myself well. I acted clearly, sharply and adhered to my plan for the fight. I didn't do anything crazy. I know what a good fighter I am, I just had to put everything together, like tonight," Garcia commented on his performance against Fortuna. - Javier hits hard, he has a strong fist. As I said, when I fight stronger opponents, I box better. Yes, I caught him with a blow to the body. He thought that I was going to hit on the head, but I switched the blow to the body. I felt that he was going to strike like Luke Campbell. I think now everyone will try to shock me with this blow. I hit hard, so I don't have to put in much effort to shock someone."
“I think I made a big statement to get back on track with my career. The mental health break is a time to reflect on yourself and be better for the future. It's not a weakness, it's a strength! This is courage! You saw me today when I entered the ring. It is nothing short of courage and skill,” added Garcia.
