Ryan Garcia parts ways with trainer Joe Goossen
Following defeat to Gervonta Davis in April, Ryan Garcia has parted ways with his trainer Joe Goossen after just three fights together.
Following his 2021 win over Briton Luke Campbell, Garcia suffered with bouts of depression which resulted in an extended hiatus from the ring. It was 15 months until he fought again, with new trainer Goossen in his corner. California's Garcia took on dangerous contender Emmanuel Tagoe in San Antonio, knocking him down in round two and winning on points over 12 rounds.
Then he was back out less than three months later agains Javier Fortuna, who was decked in rounds four, five and six, before being counted out.
Ryan and Joe's third fight together was the PPV showdown with longterm rival Gervonta, who floored Ryan in the second then stopped him with an accurate body shot in the seventh.
Despite his first ever defeat, Garcia and Gervonta thrilled fans in one of the fights of the year and the gate numbers and pay-per-views were a tremendous success. Fight fans are looking forward to what's next for the LA man, who is set to campaign at super-lightweight from hereon. He has won WBC Silver and WBC Interim lightweight titles, but according to ESPN the decision has been made to fight at 140lbs.
Prior to working with Goossen, he has been trained by his father Henry Garcia and Eddy Reynoso.
