Panel: With Ryan Garcia set to return in 2022, who would you like to see him fight at lightweight?

Ryan Garcia boxing
This week's panellists were asked to plot the route back for Ryan Garcia following a barren 2021

Michael Conlan (Featherweight contender)

I’d love to see the Devin Haney fight. I think it’s a very good fight. Both have fast hands but Ryan is faster; both hit hard but Devin hits harder. It’s a 50/50 for me.

Jamie Moore (Former European super-welterweight champion)

I think Garcia’s a phenomenal talent but, at this moment in time, coming off a big layoff, and bearing in mind the reason for it, I feel he should wait a while before going in with the top guys. The most exciting fight for me, though, would be Garcia vs Gervonta Davis.

Wayne Alexander (Former European super-welterweight champion)

I would personally like him to have a decent test first before fighting one of the four very good world ‘champions’. He was on a roll but with the inactivity and personal issues it wouldn’t be a wise move. A fight with the unbeaten Devin Haney would be a massive superfight worldwide in the summer

Andy Clarke (boxing commentator)

Gervonta Davis. Garcia’s performance against Luke Campbell showed us he’s a world level fighter, whilst Davis has been one for a good while. Their styles and mentalities would combine to produce a terrific fight, I’m as sure as I can be about that.
