Golden Boy Promotions has a unique opportunity this Cinco De Mayo weekend -- to show a new "face of boxing." Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has spotlighted the Mexican holiday for years, and his promoter Oscar De La Hoya before him.
On May 4th, a day prior to 5 de Mayo, Ryan "The Flash" Garcia (14-0, 13 KOs), 19, will headline a Golden Boy on ESPN fight card in prime time. When the fight was placed at the Stubhub Center in Carson, CA, it had all the ingredients for a signature showcase. The promotional company will have a new opportunity to introduce the sports world to the next Golden Boy.
A special boxing bout on or around Cinco De Mayo has been essential for many fans, especially passionate Mexican fans. Garcia's style with quick hand speed and reflexes, has all the tools to earn the nod from viewers.
