WBC Silver Lightweight Title

Rising Lightweight star Ryan Garcia steps up to face two-time World Title challenger Francisco Fonseca on Friday 14th February, live in the UK & Ireland on BoxNation.

Garcia (19-0, 16 KOs), is regarded as one of the most exciting prospects in the Golden Boy Promotions stable, and now gets the chance to headline at the Honda Center in California.

In his last bout the 21-year-old talent made a statement by ruining tough contender Romero Duno in the first round on the Canelo Alvarez-Sergey Kovalev card.

Tough Nicaraguan contender Fonseca (25-2-2, 19 KOs) has only been beaten in World Title fights against Gervonta Davis (KO8) and Tevin Farmer (UD). Since the Farmer loss in December 2018, he’s 3-0-1, last boxing in November - a majority draw against Alex Dilmaghani.

Former three-weight World Champion Jorge Linares returns to BoxNation in the co-feature, aiming to bounce back from a big setback one year ago.

In January 2019, the 34-year-old Venezuelan moved up to Super-Lightweight but suffered a shock first-round knockout against Pablo Cesar Cano.

He returned to the ring in September - a straightforward win over Al Toyogon in Japan - but now he's back in the States to take on experienced Carlos Morales (19-4-4, 8 KOs) down at 135lbs.

With Linares boxing on Garcia's undercard, Golden Boy are hoping to match the two fighters against each other for an intriguing crossroads clash in early May.
