Garcia umakyat sa no. 2 ng lightweight rankings

IPINAKITA  ni Ryan Garcia ang pruweba bilang isa sa top lightweight  fighters sa ipinakitang impresibong performance  nang talunin ang The Ring’s No. 4 – rated contender na si Luke Campbell nitong 2 Enero.

Sumampa si Garcia, rated No. 5 sa lightweight ng The Ring, bagay na kinuwestiyon ng hardcore fans at media dahil sa ipinakitang kakulangan sa kanyang laban sa ring.  Ang punang iyon ay dahil naging sentro siya ng intriga sa social media at sa pagkakaroon ng ‘good looks.’

Sa nasabing bakbakan, ipinakita ng 22-anyos Californian ang kanyang kalidad.

Bumagsak man siya sa 2nd round ay tumayong may bagsik sa kamao at lalong naging agresibo sa laban para  kontrolin ang laban at patulugin sa 7th round si Campbell sa pama­magitan ng matin-ding body shot.

Si Campbell (20-4, 16 KOs) ay isang Olympic gold medalist at dalawang beses naging title challeng-er at hindi pa natatalo sa pamamagitan ng knock-out sa pro-boxing.

Bagama’t hindi naging perpekto ang unang world-class test ni Garcia (21-0, 18 KOs) ay markado pa rin ang kanyang naging per-formance.

Si Senior panelist Anson Wainwright ay ipinanukala na iaakyat si Garcia sa No. 3 at ibaba sa No. 6 si Campbell.

Pero tumutol ang iba pang miyembro ng Ratings Panel at Editorial Board na dapat iakyat sa No. 2 ang tinaguriang “King Ry.”

Senegundahan nina panelists Adam Abra-mowitz, Michael Montero, Tris Dixonm at Diego Morilla ang opinyon.

Sinabi ni panelist Martin Mulcahey:

”Ryan Garcia has converted me. I saw a speed merchant tested by a world class foe and (my doubts were) laid to rest on Saturday.

“He has the mentality of champ, and not only recovered but took the lead the next round after a hard knockdown.

“Yes, Garcia to No. 2 (with reservations since I rate Haney’s win over Juan Carlos Burgos).

“I would drop Campbell to No. 9, as we have seen him come up short (in title bouts) three times now.

“Also, I think people quickly forget how Haney is (coming off) one ordinary outing but he won every round against (Yuriorkis) Gamboa. If Garcia and Haney fight tomorrow,  I put my money on Haney.”
