Flashback: Boxing Sensation Ryan Garcia Training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Flashback: Boxing Sensation Ryan Garcia Training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Ryan Garcia, a name that has resonated across the boxing world for his incredible speed, powerful punches, and meteoric rise to fame, last year added a new chapter to his controversial career. Known for his unorthodox behavior and charismatic personality, Garcia’s journey has been nothing short of spectacular. With an impressive professional boxing record, including numerous knockouts and titles, Garcia quickly became one of the sport’s most exciting prospects.

However, his career has not been without its tumultuous moments. Recently, Garcia tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug (PED) following his latest fight, casting a shadow over his achievements. Despite this setback, Garcia has continued to push boundaries, venturing into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training to diversify his combat skills.

Under the guidance of renowned BJJ practitioner Rener Gracie, Garcia embraced the new challenge with the same intensity that made him a boxing sensation. His foray into BJJ highlights his relentless pursuit of excellence and adaptability, further solidifying his complex yet fascinating legacy in the world of combat sports.

Rener shared the news on his social media:

Surely, getting the black belt (as teased by Rener) would take Ryan Garcia a long time nevertheless – most people get promoted in 10 to 15 years’ time.
And even if he is to receive his belt sooner, that’d mean more dedication; which, given that Garcia is in the process of creating a legacy in boxing, might be too big of a bite to chew on at the moment.

Garcia has been training boxing since he was 7 years old, with his father in the family garage. He turned professional at age 17 and it was immediately obvious that he’d be a true boxing sensation – as out of his first 6 pro MMA fights, he won 5 of them via knockout.

Therefore, it will be interesting to watch his progress in Jiu-Jitsu. Regardless of the belt color he reaches, given his work ethic… Garcia could reach great heights.
