Ryan Garcia is set to make his 23rd professional outing on July 16 against Javier Fortuna. The lightweight was last inside the ropes on April 9 against Emmanuel Tagoe, who he defeated via unanimous decision.
While being an extremely promising boxer who is on the road to chasing greatness in the sport, he has also become a big names through his marketing. The California-based fighter has many brand endorsements with some of the biggest companies.
While being a guest on the BigBoyTV podcast, Garcia explained his endorsement deals and his partnership with Dior:
"I don't know if I can announce it, I probably can. They're making my fight outfit for this fight [against Javier Fortuna], it's going to be all Dior. It's gonna be sick, it's gonna be sick."
Garcia has certainly improved his net worth and profile in the sport, as well as outside the ropes through his many huge partnerships. Although he is very early in his boxing career, he's dramatically growing his brand.
This is a huge factor as to why he's a mega asset to many promoters and broadcasters. In his latest fight against Tagoe, the 23-year-old earned a total purse of $3 million from pay-per-view purchases and guaranteed payments.
