Top Rank Signs Lightweight Prospect Alan Garcia; Returns on March 29th

Press Release:


Lightweight prospect Alan “Kid Kansas” Garcia, the 21-year phenom from Ulysses, Kansas, has signed a long-term promotional contract with Top Rank.


Garcia, who has appeared on two Top Rank cards, is set to return Friday, March 29, at Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona. His fight will be featured underneath the Oscar Valdez-Liam Wilson/Seniesa Estrada-Yokasta Valle doubleheader, streaming live and exclusively on ESPN+.


Garcia, who lives and trains in Los Angeles, is a stablemate of Valle’s and is trained and managed by Gloria Alvarado.


Garcia (11-0, 9 KOs) started boxing as a 7-year-old in Kansas and eventually became one of USA Boxing’s top teenage amateurs. He captured silver medals at the 2016 and 2017 U.S. Junior Olympics and won a 2018 Junior Golden Gloves title. Garcia turned pro in September 2020 and went 4-0 fighting in Mexico before making his American debut in early 2022. Following a shutout decision over Nelson Hampton last October, he shined in February on the Teofimo Lopez-Jamaine Ortiz undercard in Las Vegas. Garcia made a Sin City statement with a first-round body shot knockout over Tomas Ornelas.
