Ryan Garcia vs. Javier Fortuna Predictions

Ryan Garcia has quickly become one of the biggest names in boxing, and for good reason. The 23-year-old is undefeated with a record of 22-0, but he faces maybe his biggest test inside the ring when he squares up against Javier Fortuna. Ryan Garcia is 22-0 as a professional boxer with 18 knockouts. Javier Fortuna is 37-3-1 as a professional boxer with 26 knockouts.

Ryan Garcia is known for entering his professional career at the very young age of 17. He wasted no time in his professional boxing career, but Javier Fortuna is one of the most experienced opponents he will have faced yet. For starters, Garcia will have both a height and reach advantage. His reach advantage is only about two inches, but every inch counts in boxing. The most significant factor of the fight behind that is Garcia's speed. Garcia is probably the quickest striker in the division. He is constantly pressuring his opponents with straight jabs that he combines with a nasty left hook. That left hook will be even more prevalent today against Fortuna, given that Fortuna is a southpaw.

The advantage for Fortuna tonight is his experience. Fortuna has 20 more fights on his record, and experience can go a long way in the ring. Fortuna is also an unorthodox fighter who lets his hands fly from the first bell. Fortuna's best chance of victory tonight is to not let Garcia dictate the pace of the fight by getting in Garcia's face early. If Garcia gets Fortuna to back up and strike at his range, Garcia will win without much adversity.

The biggest drawback of Garcia's game is his high chin. Garcia has a tendency to leave his chin high in exchanges, which hasn't cost him a fight yet. However, Luke Campbell was able to drop Garcia because of his high chin before Garcia rallied back and knocked him out. Given how Fortuna will look to pressure early and often, Garcia will have to tuck his chin if he doesn't want his lights put out. Because of this, I like the under. The under is set at 7.5 rounds, and I like it to end before that point. Fortuna will be pressuring early in the first round, and he either catches Garcia with his chin high for a huge upset, or Garcia's left hook will catch the southpaw fighter walking right into it. Take the under, and also take a stab on Garcia to win in rounds 5-6.
