Ryan Garcia vs. Oscar Duarte live fight updates, results, highlights from 2023 boxing fight

Ryan Garcia returns to the ring for the first time since suffering a knockout loss to Gervonta Davis when he faces Oscar Duarte on December 2 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. 

Garcia’s last fight was a blockbuster event that sold over 1.2 million pay-per-view buys, making it the biggest PPV of 2023 and cracking the top 10 highest-grossing PPV boxing events of all time. Unfortunately, Garcia was stopped in the seventh round by “Tank” and found himself in the loss column for the first time in his professional career. 

Now comfortable at 140 pounds, and with a new trainer in Derrick James, Garcia will look to bounce back and return to form against Duarte. Garcia (23-1, 19 KOs) remains one of the biggest stars in the sport but will have to avoid falling short a second time against an opponent who is looking to pull off a massive upset. 

Duarte (26-1-1, 21 KOs) has won his last 11 fights by stoppage since losing a split decision to Adrian Estrella in 2019. It’s a huge step up in competition for him, but he’s more than up for the task of taking down the social media superstar and knockout artist. 

Stay tuned as The Sporting News will provide live updates of Garcia’s return to action.

Round One:

SN Unofficial Scorecard:

10:08 p.m. ET: The main event is up next as Ryan Garcia is preparing to head to the ring with Hip Hop artist Lupe Fiasco by his side for his comeback fight against Oscar Duarte. We’re going to round-by-round coverage from here on out. 

9:46 p.m. ET: Good lord. Schofield throttled Lopez with four knockdowns in the first round to get the TKO victory. Behind a lightning-fast jab, Schofield wrecked a seasoned veteran in an eyebrow-raising fashion. Schofield said he was ready for the biggest and best lightweights in the world and it’s going to be hard to deny him if he keeps performing like this. 


9:35 p.m. ET: Up next is undefeated lightweight Floyd Schofield facing Ricardo Lopez Torres. It’s the co-main event. 

9:14 p.m. ET: Shane Mosley Jr. is inching closer to a world title opportunity after closing the show by forcing Joshua Conley to quit on the stool at the end of round six. Mosley looked strong and dominant. But is he truly ready for the next step in his career?

8:46 p.m. ET: Up next is Shane Mosley Jr. taking on Joshua Conley in middleweight action. Conley came in overweight and has been inactive for over a year.  

8:27 p.m. ET: As expected, Darius Fulghum took care of business and finished Pachino Hill with a 2nd round TKO. That’s Fulghum’s ninth career win and all of them have come inside the distance. Bernard Hopkins has spoken highly of Fulghum and there’s a lot of potential for the young fighter. 

8:15 p.m. ET: Hello everyone, and welcome to The Sporting News’ live coverage of Garcia vs. Duarte. We’re kicking off the main card with the undefeated knockout artist Darius Fulghum taking on Pachino Hill.
