Welcome to Diario AS USA’s live coverage of the catchweight bout between Ryan Garcia and Oscar Duarte from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Ryan Garcia is looking to bounce back from his heavy loss to Gervonta “Tank” Davis back in April and will have his hands full with Oscar Duarte in what has turned out to be a catchweight fight. Originally thought to be a light welterweight contest has been modified with both fighters coming in three pounds heavy.
While much of the damage done to Garcia by Davis was attributed to the heavy weight cut that he underwent to make it to the 136-pound level, so both fighters will likely be happy to fight at the higher weight.
After a tense, and frankly bizarre, press conference in which Garcia seemed to level accusations of treason against his own camp, this will be a fight that can shape the career of each man in the ring. Duarte could use a big-name win, dogged as he is by accusations that his resumé is full of light work. And as for Garcia, he needs an emphatic win to dispel the accusations of having been seen to have quit during the last outing.
