The scintillating life of boxer Ryan Garcia as an undefeated star set to sport a dramatic body transformation in the comeback fight

RYAN GARCIA feels on top of the world again.

The undefeated boxer, 23, took a year off from the sport to focus on his mental health after beating Luke Campbell in January 2021.

Now firmly back in the game, he meets former IBO Lightweight Champion Emmanuel Tagoe on April 9 in San Antonio.

Known as Flash or KingRy, the California-born lightweight burst onto the scene as a newly minted pro at just 17 years old.

He has since fought his way up the rankings, winning all 21 of his bouts and capturing the vacant WBC lightweight crown after Campbell’s dramatic stoppage.

Now, back from his self-imposed hiatus, all eyes will be on Garcia as he makes his long-awaited comeback.

Coming from a large family, Garcia’s success is tied to his parents – his father Henry remains on his training team while mother Lisa is his tireless PA.

Blessed with movie star looks and quick hands, the Mexican-born boxer has used his fists to build an estimated net worth of $10 million.

And that money has certainly been put to good use, as Garcia reportedly invested in a car and mansion for his mother — before he even turned 21.

His own family is also growing, as Garcia has to take care of two little daughters.

He has three-year-old Rylie with former girlfriend Catherine Gamez and 18-month-old Bela with social media star Drea Celina.

“Everything fell down”

Garcia lives his life in the fast lane and it shows in his car collection.

Speed ​​is his friend in and out of the ring, judging by the engines he shares with his 8.7 million Instagram followers.

KingRy has some impressive vehicles available including a Lamborghini Urus, a Ferrari 488 GTB and a Porsche 718 Boxster.

This Lambo packs a punch, producing a whopping 641 horsepower and selling for a whopping $225,000.

He’s also the proud owner of a $118,000 Audi RS Seven, which features a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 and hits 60mph in a hair-raising 3.5 seconds.

Boxing fans who haven’t kept up with Garcia in his year out of the ring could be in for a shock when he makes his appearance on April 9.

Flash has undergone a dramatic body transformation, with his torso now dominated by a series of eye-catching tattoos.

Garcia began improving his body art in early 2021 and now boasts over ten tatts around his shoulders and chest alone.

He has two lions on either side of his chest, which are said to signify strength and refer to his nickname “KingRy”.

There’s also the words “Shock the World” on the back of his shoulder, while on his right arm is a cross.

Baptized in January 2021, Garcia takes his faith seriously.

“I AM GRATEFUL, I AM REAL”

He explains: “The cross [tattoo signifies] the power, the power in my right hand.

“Don’t underestimate the left either, because he too has this power.”

A dove on his right shoulder is said to signify “the Holy Spirit who guides me”, while there is a laurel wreath around his neck.

Garcia is one of boxing’s most exciting talents, and Oscar De La Hoya predicts he may become “the biggest star boxing has ever seen.”

Now back to health and full of action after his year out of the ring, the undefeated star can’t wait to fight and break his 22-0 pro record.

But he’s thankful he overcame the mental health demons that struck just three weeks after his win over Campbell.

He told InsideHook: “Everything came crashing down on me. I was lost in my head and words can’t really describe how I felt.

“It was like being in a maze and not knowing where to go. I’m just happy to be here. I’m grateful, I really am.

“I did not understand it. I have everything, I’m so good. I get people telling me that ‘Ryan, like the fact that you came out, you saved my life.’

“And that’s exactly what makes all the pain I’ve been through worth it. If a kid got out of a dark place because of my story, that’s worth more than I could ever do in the ring.”

Garcia fights Emmanuel Tagou on Saturday April 9th, the fight will be broadcast live on DAZN.
