Golden Boy Cannot Be Made or Broken by Ryan Garcia and Jaime Munguia.

In light of Golden Boy Promotions’ goals, Bernard Hopkins downplayed the significance of the upcoming weeks.
Ryan Garcia, who is by far Golden Boy’s most well-known fighter, will take on WBC super lightweight champion Devin Haney on Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Being the clear underdog against his long-standing opponent, he will be losing for the second time in three battles if, as predicted, he falls short despite facing the best opponents possible.

When he fights Saul “Canelo” Alvarez for the undisputed super middleweight title in Las Vegas two weeks from now, Jaime Munguia, the second-most well-known boxer for Golden Boy, will be the underdog. Though Munguia has not lost, he would have to start over, just like Garcia, if he did.

Following his hospitalization due to difficulty making weight, Vergil Ortiz Jr., the third fighter of significant significance to the company that formerly stood in for the most powerful promoter in the world, pulled out of his welterweight bout against Eimantas Stanionis in 2023. This happened because, despite defeating Fredrick Lawson in January, he experienced a relapse of rhabdomyolysis, a disorder that can harm the kidneys and heart and result in permanent disability or even death. It was determined that this condition was a sign of prolonged COVID.

Though they are putting on what will undoubtedly be two of the biggest fights of 2024, it is therefore far from unfathomable that Golden Boy will find it difficult to expand on the status of those who represent their three top boxers.

The end of HBO Boxing, the broadcaster that Golden Boy gave such reliable results for, along with Alvarez’s exit from the company, also lessened the promoter’s power. While Hopkins, an active fighter who participated in major fights for Matchroom during a period when the promoter had almost unmatched power due to superfights like Oscar De La Hoya-Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Mayweather-Ricky Hatton, is unconcerned, Matchroom is still the top promoter on DAZN, Golden Boy’s broadcast partner in 2024.

Recalling the situations Garcia and Munguia found themselves in, Hopkins retorted, “You also have Vergil Oritz.” You possess Floyd Schofield, aka ‘Kid Austin.'” From the front-runners to the ones who will be front-runners, our house is full of talent.Furthermore, you need to be aware of the long term. Future is not the long game. Not next month is the long game. We will eventually have winners in almost every division, according to the long view.We restart from scratch [if Garcia and Munguia are defeated]. Restarting at the beginning. That constancy is the thing. One pony doesn’t run the entire show.We earned our position, and you must realize it. Austin; Ryan Garcia; Munguia; Ortiz. It’s a major fight, and we earned it. Hopefully, it’s not the judges who determine the result, but rather the competitors. We are limited to expecting that. One of the best things about boxing is that when we finished our task, they must now do theirs.To collaborate in order to accomplish something this big, everyone who makes decisions outside of the ring – They did their jobs, Ryan Garcia and Devin Haney on DAZN. We may now relax, as this battle has reached adulthood and reached its conclusion. Whichever of those two individuals is correct and which is incorrect, it is their responsibility to demonstrate what they claimed before Saturday night.

Another indication of the shifting power dynamics in the United States was Matchroom’s announcement of Jaron “Boots” Ennis’s contract after his exit from Premier Boxing Champions. Perhaps Golden Boy could have made more of a play given the uncertainty surrounding PBC.

However, this move by Matchroom also highlights the growing competition in the boxing industry. With more and more fighters becoming free agents and promoters vying for their talents, it’s a clear indication that the sport is evolving and changing rapidly.

But let’s not forget about the action inside the ring. As Ryan Garcia and Devin Haney prepare to face off on DAZN, both have been vocal about their desire to become world champions in their respective weight classes. The stakes are high for both fighters as they look to solidify their positions as top contenders in a stacked lightweight division.

Garcia, with his impressive speed and power, has quickly become one of the most talked-about young boxers in recent years. But Haney is no  slouch either, with a flawless record and impressive technical skills.

This matchup is sure to attract a lot of attention from fans and experts alike. It’s not just about the clash of styles between these two rising stars, but also about the potential for this fight to determine the future of the lightweight division.

And while all eyes may be on Garcia and Haney, let’s not forget about other exciting matchups happening in the near future. From Canelo Alvarez’s return to the ring against Billy Joe Saunders, to Tyson Fury taking on Anthony Joshua in a highly anticipated heavyweight unification bout, there’s no shortage of excitement in boxing right now.

But as always, anything can happen inside that squared circle. One punch can change everything and alter the course.

Hopkins, who, like Garcia and Munguia, was supposed to lose, expressed anxiety when he wasn’t the underdog. His greatest wins came against Felix Trinidad and Kelly Pavlik. Because you have to realize that you have to earn it, there are instances when being the underdog might be the best thing that has happened to you. It won’t be handed out.”It is quite competitive to watch the current status of boxing in the weight classes. It is people’s view that anyone can be the underdog. Who is the underdog, and why? On the other hand, you are only the underdog if you think so. Yes, it is necessary for you to enter and battle.
When someone says to a combatant, “He should beat him,” “He shouldn’t beat him,” or anything similar, I’ll reply, “I agree.” However, you have to let the conflict happen at the end of the day. It is essential that you truly understand.
