Manny Pacquiao vs Ryan Garcia: Dream or Reality?


PhilBoxing.com





This “Dream to Reality” picture depicting Ryan Garcia in a fight poster against Manny Pacquiao is what hugely popular Mexican-American Lightweight rising star “King” Ryan Garcia has shared with his legions of followers in his Instagram account today, the story fast trending in all over social media.

But, is it real? Does “Kingry” really want to battle the heavier, far more experienced Pacman? Or is Ryan just expressing what would be his dream fight?

Whatever it is, in matter of minutes Ryan’s “Dream to Reality” fight poster pic has been viewed and shared by thousands of his loyal followers in the U.S., Mexico and around the world, quickly reaching more than a million views.

Even so, Ryan’s promoter Oscar de la Hoya, nor GBP prez Eric Gómez nor Pacquiao nor DAZN have said anything about it, not yet.

That’s why some fans think that "Kingry" might be just wishful thinking... maybe just teasing the Filipino, or maybe Ryan is for real trying to get himself into a multi-million blockbuster clash against the amazing Pacquiao, still one of the most adored, bankable and popular boxers on Earth.

Notably, a few months ago, there were talks and reports about a possible rumble of Pacquiao against “The Notorious” Conor McGregor.

However, after Conor’s devastating knockout loss yesterday in Abu Dhabi, ravaged by the furious fists of Dustin Poirier, the prospect of “The Notorious” fighting “The Pacman” seems to have faded away.


Ryan Garcia (L), 22, hopes to realize his dream fight against his idol the legendary Manny Pacquiao, now at the ripe age of 42.

That might be another reason why Ryan García might think that this is his chance to get in the big spotlight, confident that he has more than enough star power to step-in. Would that be?

But truly, world title fights of the magnitude of Manny Pacquiao vs Ryan Garcia normally never get announced like this, at least not traditionally.

However, in this era of social media, more and more unusual things become normal and possible.

In addition, it is worth considering that Ryan Garcia is a newly crowned interim titlist at 135 pounds, not even a regular champion in his competitive weight class where the top man is unbeaten “Takeover” Teofimo Lopez.

In contrast, the veteran Pacquiao, a superbly talented fighter, still strong, fast and dangerous at 147. The Pacman would obliterate Ryan in no time.

That is why for hardcore boxing fans it make more sense to have Ryan Garcia, 22, battle Teófimo Lopez, Gervonta Davis or Loma; and Pacquiao, 42, fight Errol Spence or Terence Crawford.

The original question still stands: is Manny Pacquiao vs Ryan Garcia Ryan’s dream or reality?

Well, after sharing with you the above thoughts, my guess is that this is just Ryan’s dream fight, a result of Ryan’s admiration and respect for the Filipino boxing king, and that’s my humble opinion.

Nevertheless, as legendary Panama boxing commentator Rafael “Chéquele” Samudio used to say: “In boxing anything can happen!"
