Garcia, a 19-year-old native of Victorville, Calif., is the future of
boxing. After winning multiple national championships as an amateur and
several professional fights in Mexico, Garcia signed with Golden Boy
Promotions in Nov. 2016. Since then, he has won nearly every fight by
knockout, including a highlight-reel knockout of Miguel Carrizoza to
win the Junior NABF Super Featherweight Title and a first-round knockout
victory against Fernando Vargas. In his last fight, Garcia scored a
unanimous decision win against seasoned Puerto Rican contender Jayson “La
Maravilla” Velez to win the NABF and NABO Super Featherweight Titles. The
young star will fight a fellow regional champion in what will be his
toughest test yet.

“I feel amazed, honored and excited,” said *Ryan Garcia*. “I’ve changed up
my team and we’ve been working on my craft. I’m more focused now than ever
before, and I’ve been working on the body shots. I won’t reveal too much
now, so everyone will have to tune in. I’m going to show fans why we are
the hottest thing in boxing.”

Morales is a 28-year-old who currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
Despite starting his career with a record of 0-1-3, Morales scored 16
impressive victories in a row, including a split decision victory
against Charles Huertain 2017 that earned him the NABA 130-pound title.
Morales then defeated Cesar Alan Valenzuela, a common opponent of Garcia’s,
before losing toAlberto “Explosivo” Machado in close and tough unification
fight. Morales regained the NABA Super Featherweight Title late last year
with a technical decision against Dardan Zenunajand will look to upset the
rising star.
