When it comes to the much-anticipated return of unbeaten lightweight Ryan Garcia after a tough 14-month layoff, Emmanuel Tagoe has made no holds barred in announcing that he intends to play spoiler on Saturday.

Tagoe (32-1, 15 KOs), a 33-year-old Ghanaian, will attempt to make a name for himself in the sport when he fights Garcia (21-0, 18 KOs) inside the Alamodome in San Antonio in a main event planned for a catchweight of 139 pounds.

The match will begin at 9 pm ET.

“I think I have the tools to knock out Ryan on Saturday. This fight is an opportunity for me to showcase myself,” Tagoe said.

“I came here to knock out Ryan Garcia. I think he’s good but he’s not my size. I can’t wait for Saturday. I’m going to show everyone.”

“I know he has been saying that facing me will be easy. But I can say one thing, my job is to not make his life easy in that ring. Fans should be ready to see me give this fight everything I got. If he can take a shot, it will be a good fight. If he can’t, he will be out of there very quick.”

Gabe Rosado returns to the ring against Shane Mosley Jr., the son of a legend. Rosado stunned the world when he knocked out Bektemir Melikuziev in 2021. The veteran was thrown into a matchup against emerging star Jaime Munguia right away.

Let’s take a look at the fight cards and odds.

While the announcement of Tagoe as a comeback opponent was initially disappointing owing to his lack of name recognition, he may be the ideal style matchup for Garcia to regain his confidence and silence his doubters due to Tagoe’s direct approach.

Garcia’s offensive skills, like his lightning-quick hand speed and combinations, are outstanding, but his chin and defensive instincts on an elite level are still debatable.

Garcia could also be wired in such a way that he’ll never be able to completely eliminate his flaws from any battle. Garcia, a gunslinger at heart with an aggressive new coach behind him, has a good chance of making an emphatic statement against the less skillful Tagoe. In fact, the large betting odds make it appear as if it’s a foregone conclusion.

As a result, Garcia might pass this exam with flying colors while still failing to demonstrate that he is psychologically and physically recovered from the previous year.
