Roberto Garcia Is Ready To Step In And Face Brandon Rios



Welterweight Brandon Rios is short an opponent for his return to the ring on September 22nd and Roberto Garcia is ready to step right in.

 

“I’m ready to go,” said Garcia. “I’ve just finished a two-week sparring session with Shawn Porter, so I’m itching to return to the ring against Rios. Let’s make it happen.”

 

Both Rios (34-4-1, 25 KOs) and Garcia (41-4, 24 KOs) are coming off losses. Rios got stopped by Danny Garcia in the 9thround on Feb. 17 and Garcia lost a unanimous decision and his silver middleweight title to Martin Murray on June 23.

 

“Garcia has always wanted to fight Rios,” said manager Lee Holliday. “It’s an intriguing fight of former champions. I have spoke to the WBC about Garcia fighting for the 154 pound WBC Wilver Belt and received an absolute yes that they would endorse Roberto Garcia for that challenge. Winning the WBC Welterweight Silver belt would certainly open the doors to face WBC current champion, Jermell Charlo.”
