Ryan Garcia showed his love to Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry for recently winning the NBA 2022 Championship and Finals MVP award.
Curry led Golden State to their fourth NBA championship since 2015, defeating the Boston Celtics 4-2 in their best-of-seven finals series. With another Sterling season, the 6’2 guard cemented his claim as an all-time great.
In conversation with ESNews‘KingRy’ pointed out that despite being the ‘outsider’ and smaller guy on the court, Curry could still shine and help his team win another NBA title.
“Finals MVP Steph Curry, a true inspiration, stays genuine at all times, humble and just likes to kick ass on the pitch. Congratulations, you deserve everything you have worked for.”

Ryan Garcia’s training performance impresses Joe Goossen
Ryan Garcia is currently in the middle of preparing for his next fight against Javier Fortuna in July. Renowned trainer Joe Goossen was impressed with the young fighter’s performance in training camp.
In a video uploaded to Garcia’s YouTube channel, Goossen, who previously coached Shane Mosley, Amir Khan and Riddick Bowe, among others, said:
“He’s an incredible performer, an incredible fighter. He’s unique and I’ve coached a lot of great guys, a lot of world champions. And let me tell you, he stands alone as one of the greatest fighters I’ve ever worked with.”
Check out the full vlog below:
Garcia wins a 12-round unanimous decision victory over Emmanuel Tagoe on April 9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
A win over Fortuna next will not only justify Goossen’s praise but also catapult the up-and-coming fighter into the higher echelons of the strong lightweight division. A win could also earn him a potential matchup against WBA (Regular) Lightweight Champion Gervonta Davis.
