Undefeated lightweight contender Ryan Garcia 19-0 (16) returns to the ring against Francisco Fonseca 25-2-2 (19) in a 12-round bout at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on February 14.

In his last outing the 21-year-old Garcia impressively stopped fringe contender Romero Duno 21-2 (16) in just 98 seconds in November.

“Ryan Garcia silenced all the sceptics by knocking out a tough contender in Romero Duno and he did it in just one spectacular round,” said promoter Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions to The Ring.

“Aside from being a popular young star who is loved by all women, he’s also demonstrated that he’s a skilful fighter with power in both hands.”

“I’m very excited to be in the ring once again,” said Garcia. “I’m looking to shock the world this year. I’m going to show the boxing world that I’m here forever!”

Nicaragua’s Fonseca has only been bested by Gervonta Davis and Tevin Farmer in the pro ranks, both times in world title bouts.

The 25-year-old strung together three wins in a busy 2019 before being held to a majority draw against once-beaten local fight Alex Dilmaghani 19-1-1 (8) in London in November.

“Nicaraguan boxing is a the very top right now because we have two world champions representing us right now. That’s why I will not let my country down,” said Fonseca.

“When I face Ryan Garcia, I will expose him on his own territory, and I will deliver him his first professional (loss).

“My manager Rosendo Alvarez and I have been waiting for. We’ve dreamed of fighting Ryan Garcia, and we have the antidote to defeat him.”
