Goldenboy’s Alex Martin Calls for Ryan Garcia Fight

Goldenboy Promotion's Alex Martin (17-3 6KO) called for a fight with former WBC Interim Lightweight Champion Ryan Garcia (21-0 18KO) via Instagram

 

Martin (32-years-old) is in the prime of his career, winning four consecutive bouts since dropping to Lightweight. In his last fight, Martin looked outstanding - showing excellent footwork and an educated jab. 

 

The Chicago native has expressed an interest in taking the next step in his career. His last three opponents had a combined record of 60-4 (two of them undefeated) and he certainly has the skills to compete for a world title; his footwork, head movement, and hand speed are outstanding. 

 

This isn't the first time Martin or his team has called for a big fight. After his fight with Josec Ruiz, Martin's head coach, Joe Zagarino, said Martin is ready for some of the top names in the Lightweight division.  

 

 

We want someone like a Devin Haney. When you have a good boxer like that (Haney) and then you have a GREAT boxer like Alex, you'll see the difference in class. A Ryan Garcia, a Devin Haney, any of these guys... he'll beat em

Garcia (23-years-old) has not competed since January of 2021 due to injury but remains one of the most naturally-talented prospects in boxing. His incredible fast-twitch muscles and natural power has earned him five-straight stoppage victories. Martin is now among a long list of fighters that have called for a fight with Garcia.
