Alan “Kid Kansas” Garcia Signs Promotional Deal with Top Rank

LAS VEGAS (March 4, 2024) — Top Rank, one of boxing’s premier promotional companies, has secured a promising talent in lightweight prospect Alan “Kid Kansas” Garcia. Hailing from Ulysses, Kansas, the 21-year-old sensation has inked a long-term promotional contract with the esteemed organization.

Garcia, already featured on two Top Rank cards, is poised to make his return on Friday, March 29, at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona. His upcoming bout will be showcased as part of the undercard for the highly anticipated Oscar Valdez-Liam Wilson/Seniesa Estrada-Yokasta Valle doubleheader, exclusively streaming live on ESPN+.

Residing and training in Los Angeles, Garcia is under the guidance of trainer and manager Gloria Alvarado, who also oversees the career of fellow stablemate Yokasta Valle.

Expressing his enthusiasm for the partnership, Top Rank Chairman Bob Arum remarked, “Alan Garcia is a sensational young talent with world championship potential. He has everything it takes, in and out of the ring, to be a superstar in the sport.”

In response, Garcia expressed his gratitude and excitement, stating, “It is a dream come true to sign with Bob Arum and Top Rank. They have developed countless legendary fighters. I trust that Brad Goodman will get me the right fights, and I will work tirelessly to become Top Rank’s next world champion. I can’t wait to fight March 29 and continue my march towards a world title.”

With an impressive record of 11 wins, including 9 knockouts, Garcia’s journey in boxing began at the age of 7 in his hometown of Kansas. As a teenage amateur, he achieved notable success, securing silver medals at the 2016 and 2017 U.S. Junior Olympics, in addition to a 2018 Junior Golden Gloves title.

Transitioning to the professional ranks in September 2020, Garcia swiftly amassed a record of 4-0 while competing in Mexico before making his American debut in early 2022. Notably, his recent performances have captured attention, particularly his dominant victory over Nelson Hampton last October and a spectacular first-round knockout of Tomas Ornelas on the Teofimo Lopez-Jamaine Ortiz undercard in Las Vegas.
