MARTIN WARD is gunning for Ryan Garcia. He hopes to fight the American on Anthony Joshua’s June 1 undercard at Madison Square Garden.

Ward, now 21-1-2, and his team are pushing for the showdown with Garcia. “But Oscar De La Hoya [Garcia’s promoter] has different thoughts and thinks that Ryan’s beyond that point. I have to disagree. I don’t think Ryan’s fought anybody at Martin Ward’s level just yet,” the Briton’s manager Charlie Sims told Boxing News.

“I think Martin is technically the best fighter he’s ever boxed. I can understand why they might want to protect him but we’re there if they want to make the fight for June 1.”
