2017 FightNights Prospect of the Year Ryan Garcia returns to the ring on March 22nd on ESPN

Undefeated super featherweight prospect Ryan Garcia will headline a Golden Boy on ESPN card on Thursday, March 22, from Indio, California.

An opponent will be announced at a later date.

The Victorville-born Garcia (13-0, 12 KO's), 19, who compiled an amateur record of 215-15, currently holds the NABF Junior super featherweight title.

Garcia went 6-0 in 2017, including a 30-second knockout of Miguel Carrizoza to win the belt last September at the MGM Grand Marquee Ballroom in Las Vegas, the night before the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin bout at the nearby T-Mobile Arena.

Former top prospect Eddie Gomez (20-3, 11 KO's) and KeAndre Gibson (18-1-1, 7 KO's) will also fight on the card in a scheduled 10-round welterweight attraction.

Gibson was stopped in four rounds by the undefeated Antonio Orozco last April, but rebounded to finish 2017 with two wins, including a 10-round majority decision victory over fringe contender Alejandro Barrera.

Gomez has lost two of his last three, including a split decision loss to Barrera last July.

The show will also feature featherweight prospect Joet Gonzalez (18-0, 10 KO's) squaring off against Filipino Rolando Magbanua (28-6, 20 KO's).
