Ryan Garcia takes on Francisco Fonseca as the 21-year-old star looks to move on to bigger challenges in 2020.


Tonight on DAZN with prelims starting at 7 pm ET and the main card at 9 pm ET, Ryan Garcia and Jorge Linares both return to the ring in fights that may or may not set up a meeting between the two later this year, with a pair of welterweight bouts also featured on the card.

We’ll have live updates coming to you from the start of the prelims, and Wil Esco will be on the round-by-round call at 9 pm ET for the main card.

Garcia will face Francisco Fonseca and Linares takes on Carlos Morales, a pair of solid veteran opponents for the two lightweight standouts. Both are expected to win, but Linares is never a guarantee even with all his skills, and some feel Garcia is just waiting to be found out.

In welterweight action, prospect Alexis Rocha steps up against veteran Brad Solomon, and the polarizing Blair Cobbs faces Samuel Kotey in the main card opener.

The prelims will feature a return for super middleweight prospect Bektemir Melikuziev, plus three other bouts.
