This fight was supposed to transpire last July before Garcia pulled out to get on top of some mental health issues. Then a planned Joseph Diaz bout for November fell by the wayside due to a Garcia hand injury.

Ryan Garcia’s Betting Outlook vs Fortuna

Garcia competes in front of his home state here and the pugilist should get quite the partisan welcome when he walks into the ring in the coming days.

The 23-year-old returned to competing in April and readies for his sophomore bout of the calendar year here. The number six ranked lightweight is undefeated so far as a pro and the future looks bright for the surging prospect.

‘King Ry’ has been consistently calling for a Gervonta Davis clash in December should he secure the victory this weekend.

He previously captured the interim WBC lightweight title but Garcia is seemingly eyeing Davis’ WBA regular lightweight belt now.

Before any talk of a ‘Tank’ fight can pick up, Garcia must get by an individual that many see as Garcia’s toughest pro test, and for good reason.

Javier Fortuna’s Betting Outlook vs Garcia

Fortuna has fallen short in a pair of bids for lightweight gold since moving up. Still though, he remains in the top ten and remains resolute in his quest.

The former WBA super featherweight champion and WBA featherweight champion looks to secure a significant win towards getting a crack at a world title in a third weight category.

As Fortuna looks to make it the third time’s the charm and punch his ticket with an emphatic win over one of boxing’s biggest social media stars.

These 135-pounders both have a respectable magnitude of finishing ability. Fortuna’s last fight saw him garner a finish in the first frame and he has a 70 percent finishing rate overall opposite Garcia’s rate of 82 percent.

Both men will have to be defensively responsible while offensively effective as both of these guys can really touch up the other if they’re caught lacking.

Garcia vs Fortuna Prediction

This prizefight is scheduled for twelve rounds but I do not see this one going the distance.

Garcia has solid firepower and considering his overall size advantages, I can see him halting Fortuna inside the distance. I think Garcia gets the stoppage between rounds seven and nine.

Pick: Ryan Garcia (-1100)
