Ryan Garcia vs. Javier Fortuna live stream: How to watch lightweight bout via live online stream
Ryan Garcia vs. Javier Fortuna live stream, results, and discussion
Golden Boy Boxing’s biggest attraction returns to the spotlight on Saturday, July 16th at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. Lightweight contender Ryan Garcia (22-0, 18 KOs) makes his second appearance of 2022, this time in a special 140 lbs fight against Dominican veteran Javier Fortuna (37-3-1-2 NCs, 26 KOs).
Even thought Fortuna has established himself as a tricky opponent and a fringe (if not outright) top-10 lightweight, DraftKings Sportsbook still has Garcia as a massive favorite in a fight that was moved up a weight class at the request of Fortuna’s team.
There’s a free live stream of the prelims starting at 5 PM ET/2 PM PT at the top of the page, followed by DAZN’s broadcast of the four-fight main card at 8 PM ET/5PM PT. The main event should start at around 11 PM ET/8 PM PT but that depends on how long the undercard fights roll along. If you don’t have DAZN, PPV.com has this event for $34.99 and you get a free month of DAZN with your purchase.
This weekend brings a fairly low key set of boxing cards, but the highlight of the weekend should be a solid lightweight bout. Unbeaten Ryan Garcia looks to continue building his contender status as he faces Javier Fortuna on Saturday atop a DAZN card. The main card gets going at 8 p.m. ET and the main event is expected to get started in the 11 p.m. hour.
Garcia comes into the bout off a unanimous decision win over Emmanuel Tagoe in April. That followed a 15-month layoff and this bout is viewed as a potential set-up for a fight with WBA champ Gervonta “Tank” Davis. Fortuna comes into the bout off a February first round knockout of Rafael Hernandez, but he struggled a bit before that. Notably, last July he lost a 12-round decision to JoJo Diaz that slowed some momentum built after a loss and a no content in 2018.
Garcia is a heavy favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, with odds installed at -1200 to win. A Garcia stoppage is -220 and a Garcia decision win is +225. Meanwhile, a Fortunate upset by stoppage is +1200 and by decision is +1400.
In order to live stream the fight, you’ll need a subscription to DAZN. You can get a monthly subscription for $19.99 or an annual subscription for $99.99.
