Ryan Garcia endorses Trump

WBC Super Lightweight Champion Ryan Garcia was coming off a massive win on April 21 over Devin Haney.

Garcia then showed up at Mar-a-Lago where someone filmed him putting on a shadow boxing exhibition to show off his otherworldly hand speed.

Once Garcia finished showing off why no one in the fight game could currently touch him Garcia declared “Trump 2024.”

Garcia posted the video to social media writing “Trump is cool.”

Garica also posted pictures of himself with Trump.

Trump’s always been intertwined with boxing

Donald Trump and the sport of boxing have a long and successful history.

In the late 1980s, Trump revitalized the boxing scene in Atlantic City by hosting the June 27, 1988 heavyweight championship fight between Mike Tyson and Michael Spinks at the Boardwalk Hall.

Ring announcer Michael Buffer offered a glowing introduction for Trump before the fight.

“He’s a man whose success at business epitomizes the American dream, the author of the year’s best-selling book The Art of the Deal. His vision and accomplishment make him the quintessential entrepreneur. Ladies and gentlemen, New Jersey thanks him — our host for this great evening of championship boxing, Mr. Donald J. Trump,” Buffer told the crowd.

The fight became the defining moment of Tyson’s pro career as he destroyed Spinks and knocked him out in 90 seconds.

Trump’s casinos became the spot for boxing as they hosted six of seven title fights in 1988.

“I put on these fights because I’m a fan,” Trump said in a 1988 interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I do it because I like it. It’s exciting. People really react to it. You wouldn’t see this kind of excitement at the opera or ballet.”

Trump’s contribution to boxing in Atlantic City was so undeniable that Trump was part of the inaugural class for Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame in 2017.

“Donald Trump was very good for boxing in New Jersey,” longtime New Jersey boxing commissioner Larry Hazzard told the Inquirer. “You can’t rewrite the history.”

Tyson had nothing but good things to say about Trump and pointed out that Trump helped turn around Atlantic City by bringing big fights to town.

“Listen, he paid me $11 million to fight that night,” Tyson said in an interview with the Inquirer. “He was putting on the biggest events in boxing. Atlantic City wasn’t the way it is now. It was a booming city then.”

Donald Trump’s been good to the sport of boxing and the sport’s been good to him.

That’s why it’s not surprising to see a big-name superstar like Garcia back Trump.
