Ryan Garcia: The Christian boxer who amazed Logan Paul by revealing how Jesus transformed his life

Ryan Garcia is one of the rising superstars in boxing.

With 19 KOs in 24 fights, the American sensation has solidified his reputation as one of the most thrilling fighters in the sport.

With over 10 million followers on Instagram, he’s also a hugely popular figure away from the ring too.

And remarkably the 24-year-old is using his powerful voice to share his love for Jesus.

Ryan Garcia on Logan Paul’s podcast

In April 2022, Garcia appeared on Logan Paul’s podcast ‘IMPAULSIVE’.

Interestingly, it was actually the YouTuber Paul, who initiated a conversation about the boxer’s faith.

“You’re very religious right… christianity?”, Paul asked.

Garcia was quick to take Logan up on his offer to share his faith with the world:

“As I’ve grown, I’ve come to the faith of Christianity and my belief in Jesus Christ. He died for our sins and that’s what I hold true to myself.”

Garcia went on to explain how his decision to follow Jesus has lit a fire in him to want to tell others about the good news of the gospel too:

“I could scream to the world all day long, Jesus is the answer, which I will because I have such a mind like that and I came to that conclusion.

“But it’s also within yourself. You have to search, you have to ask constantly and that’s how you find out. You have to seek and then you will find.”

Ryan Garcia’s tattoos

As far as we know, Garcia has two tattoos that are linked to his Christian faith.

First of all, in the middle of his chest is a cross. The ultimate picture of hope for any Christian, points to Jesus’ death and ultimate resurrection, paying the price for sinful humans so that we can have a relationship with God.

Secondly, Garcia has a dove on his right shoulder, which he previously explained symbolizes “the holy spirit that guides me”.

Ryan Garcia after his fights

While most boxers after their fights are quick to heap praise on themselves, Garcia is very conscious to give God the glory.

After his last fight, he proudly exclaimed:

“Before I say anything, I want to look above and thank God, our Father in Heaven, for all the wisdom he gives me.

“I want to thank the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. I also want to say, the one thing I want to encourage everyone in this arena, is to try and fulfill what God has in store for your life and that’s what I’m doing right now”.
