Ryan Garcia: My Hand Felt Good, Felt Like I Should Have Had Better Timing With It, Though

Ryan Garcia didn’t get the knockout finish he sought but took plenty from his comeback fight after more than 15 months away from the ring. The unbeaten lightweight contender was forced to go twelve rounds for the first time in his career, dominating Ghana’s Emmanuel Tagoe in a lopsided unanimous decision victory. Garcia floored Tagoe in round two but was unable to put away his defensive minded foe, though leaving the Alamodome in San Antonio—which housed the recent DAZN headliner—with the confidence of having the stamina to box over the long haul and to throw his previously injured right hand without fear of going back on the end.

Ryan Garcia: I Don't Know What To Say, Isaac Cruz - I Guess All Bark, No Bite?

Ryan Garcia was pleased with Isaac Cruz’s return to the win column but could not have been more disappointed in his post-fight comments. A hoped-for lightweight battle between the pair of top contenders hit a wall earlier this year and doesn’t appear to have gained momentum even after both posted wins one week apart. Garcia ended a 15-month ring break with a twelve-round, unanimous decision win over Ghana’s Emmanuel Tagoe (32-2, 15KOs) on April 9 in San Antonio, while Cruz picked up a fifth-round stoppage of faded former featherweight titlist Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-5, 18KOs).
