International sensation “King” Ryan Garcia (23-1, 19 KOs) is all set for his highly anticipated comeback to the boxing ring in a thrilling showdown of knockout power against Mexico’s Oscar “La Migraña” Duarte (26-1-1, 21 KOs) on Saturday, December 2. This super lightweight clash, scheduled for 12 rounds, is brought to you in association with Cancun Boxing and will be broadcast worldwide on DAZN as part of your subscription.

In an enthusiastic announcement, Garcia shared, “Let’s go! I am so excited to announce that I will be fighting Oscar Duarte on December 2. I’m back and feeling better and stronger than before. I wanted Duarte for me and for the fans. He’s tough, and I’m ready to give people another show at my best weight again. Say whatever you want about Ryan Garcia, but I’m always going to give the fans what they want. Love you. See you on December 2 on DAZN.”

Despite being just 25 years old, “King” Ryan Garcia has risen to superstardom, proving himself as a major pay-per-view attraction. His recent bout against Gervonta “Tank” Davis in April 2023 pulled in over 1.2 million pay-per-view buys and generated a staggering $22.8 million gate at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, ranking among the top five best gates in Nevada boxing history. Known for his dynamic and thrilling boxing style, Garcia’s rapid pace, devastating left hook, and a long list of knockout victories have captivated fans. He has previously held the WBC interim lightweight title and bested top contenders such as Olympic gold medalist Luke Campbell.

His opponent, Oscar “La Migraña” Duarte, hailing from Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico, is a formidable contender in the lightweight division, known for his relentless aggression and defensive prowess. Duarte is unafraid to stand toe-to-toe with any opponent and has compiled a remarkable record of 11 consecutive knockout victories, avenging his sole loss to Adrian Estrella in 2019. Duarte has established himself as a knockout artist, having defeated fighters like D’Angelo Keyes, Alex Martin, and Javier Franco. Notably, Duarte is managed by award-winning actor, model, and television host Gabriel Soto, along with Cancun Boxing.

Golden Boy Promotions’ Chairman and CEO, Oscar De La Hoya, commented on the fight, saying, “This is one of the reasons fight fans love Ryan – instead of taking baby steps back after a hard-fought fight, he is returning against a guy with lethal power who doesn’t take a step backward. Whoever emerges victorious is immediately in line for a shot against any of the current world champions. Fans won’t want to miss this one.”

Jared Kass, SVP North America, DAZN Group, expressed his excitement for Ryan Garcia’s return, saying, “It is great to have Ryan fighting again on DAZN in 2023. Ryan has been a key part of DAZN since our inception, and this showdown against Oscar Duarte will be part of a thrilling lineup in December.”
