American standout boxing prospect Ryan Garcia continued his climb up the ranks tonight with a stunning first round stoppage win on the Canelo Alvarez vs Sergey Kovalev card at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
A win that sent out a statement and saw the 21-year-old prospect continue to prove why he’s one to watch for the future.
