Oscar De La Hoya confirms Ryan Garcia vs Rolly Romero bout cancelled, names next potential opponent

After making his comeback, Ryan Garcia dominated social media discussions about his potential bout against his rival, WBC super lightweight champion Devin Haney. However, a shift occurred in Garcia’s choice of opponent as he introduced another change in his next slot.

Garcia looked stubborn about replacing Devin Haney with Rolly Romero and faced many backlashes from the boxing community. But after showing keen interest in both match-ups, Ryan Garcia’s boss, Oscar de la Hoya, has decided to bring bigger change in the next bout of KingRY.

Oscar De La Hoya confirms Ryan Garcia vs. Rolly Romero is cancelled

The recently announced news from Golden Boy Promotions, the platform for all of Ryan Garcia’s fights, brought a surprising twist for Garcia. Making a remarkable comeback last December from the knockout loss against Gervonta Davis in April the previous year, Kingry finds himself back on the list of contenders for title shots against high-profile 140-pounders. However, this time around, fans might witness the former WBC/WBO champion facing a 25-year-old in his next bout.

Oscar De la Hoya has decided not to give Ronaldo ‘Rolly’ Romero to his client Ryan Garcia, a 31-year-old light welterweight fighter who once held the WBC and WBO titles together. The reason De la Hoya tweeted was, “Priced himself out,” indicating Kingry once again dropped his desire, but this time Oscar made his client pay for dynamic changes in his opponent as he is not going to a title fight with him in the next fight.

Ryan Garcia’s next opponent

After considering both Devin Haney and Ronaldo ‘Rolly’ Romero as potential opponents, José Ramírez has now emerged as the likely next challenger for Ryan Garcia. Golden Boy Promotions boss Oscar De La Hoya hinted at this matchup with a tweet that read, ‘Looking like @RyanGarcia vs. Jose Ramirez is getting close and happening.’

Talks are already underway for a blockbuster bout between Devin Haney and Gervonta Davis in Saudi Arabia. However, despite Garcia’s initial confidence in securing his next opponent, it appears he will have to wait. If the managers agree to the bout, Garcia’s two rivals, Haney and Davis, are set to compete against each other.

Now, the 25-year-old faces a significant challenge against José Ramírez, a Knockout and Endurable Boxer with 28 wins and a former boxing champion to his name. This matchup will be the debut matchup for Golden Boy which can be expected in the month of April after he turned down the proposal of fighting against WBO junior welterweight champion Teofimo Lopez for $2 million.

All this came into the spotlight when his last promotion company didn’t assure him of having a long-range plan for his career. Instead of challenging Lopez, he chose to give up the WBO belt title shot that he lost in 2021. Via. Boxing Scene. So the scenario is that Ryan Garcia is on mixed terms with Oscar de La Hoya, and Ramirez is currently the favorable boss of Golden Boy Promotion.
