He's been touted as a future great, but after an extended break that's rocked both his mind and his body, it's time for Ryan Garcia to deliver a reminder of his talents. The youngster returns to action against former IBO lightweight champion Emmanuel Tagoe, an experienced pro 10 years Garcia's senior. Settle in and get ready for this evening's boxing action, as we explain how to watch a Garcia vs Tagoe live stream on DAZN all over the world.
15 months have passed since The Flash sent Luke Campbell into retirement. It was an absorbing fight that saw both men hit the canvas, but an emphatic left hand to the ribs swung the bout Garcia's way.
The 23-year-old remains unbeaten over 21 fights, 18 of which have been decided by knockout. However, he returns to the ring a different person, having faced mental health challenges and a broken hand over the past year, which led to two fights being canceled, and Garcia being stripped of the WBC interim lightweight belt.
Tagoe has a terrific record himself, with 32 wins and one defeat, the high point being his majority decision victory over Mason Menard in his last fight. But that was nearly a year-and-a-half ago, and The Gameboy from Accra has never mixed it with a fighter of Garcia's caliber.
Will it be back to business for KingRy, or will Tagoe pull off a sensational upset? Read on and find out how to watch a Garcia vs Tagoe live stream from anywhere.
