Ryan Garcia will put his undefeated record on the line Saturday, Sept. 14, against Avery Sparrow in Carson, Calif.
If you can't be in SoCal to catch the action live, you can still watch the bout live and exclusively on DAZN.
The 21-year-old Garcia (18-0, 15 KOs) has won his first 18 fights, with 15 coming via knockout. A belt won't will be on the line when he and Sparrow (10-1, 3 KOs) enter the ring in Carson, Calif., on Saturday, but Garcia will be looking to continue the flawless start to his professional career and put himself in position for a title bout in the near future.
Garcia and Sparrow are the co-main event on the Jaime Munguia-Patrick Allotey fight card. Munguia and Allotey are fighting for the WBO junior middleweight title, and elsewhere on the card, Franchon Crews-Dezurn and Alejandra Jimenez will battle for the WBC super middleweight belt.
With over 3 million Instagram followers, Garcia attracts massive hype — and an equally large target on his back. He should face a significant test from Sparrow, whose only blemish on his professional record is a disqualification. If Garcia is to keep the naysayers at bay and keep himself on track to fight Gervonta Davis going forward, he can't afford a loss to Sparrow.
