Boxing Star Ryan Garcia Calls Out Selena Gomez … ‘Lemme Take You Out’

EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Garcia is one of the fastest rising stars in boxing … with a 17-0 record and a huge contract with Oscar De La Hoya‘s Golden Boy Promotions. 

But, what he REALLY wants … is a date with Selena Gomez!!

“She’s single so lemme shoot my shot,” the 20-year-old told us … “Lemme take you out!” 

Garcia even gave a pitch to Gomez … saying, “I would protect you, you know!?”

He’s right … dude’s got a lethal left hook and has been obliterating opponents since he turned pro at 17 years old back in 2016. 

Since then, Garcia has developed a huge following — with 1.7 million followers on Instagram! 

Garcia tells TMZ Sports he’s working on closing a deal for his next fight in March — but he’s also seriously interested in fighting Tenshin Nasukawa … the guy who got beat up by Floyd Mayweather

“He should fight me,” Garcia says … while making his case for why the two 20-year-olds would actually be an entertaining matchup. 

Long story short … they’re more equally matched in size and experience — but Garcia says the outcome will be the same … Tenshin gets KO’d. 

Boxing Star Ryan Garcia Logan Paul Used As Punching Bag … ‘F*** Me Up, Ryan!!’

Breaking News

Here’s a sight that’ll make KSI VERY happy — Logan Paul took an absolute beating from a real deal boxing star on his podcast … and the video looks painful as hell!!

20-year-old Ryan Garcia — a 17-0 rising boxing star — turned the social media megastar into his own human punching bag on the “Impaulsive” podcast on Monday … as part of the Body Shot Challenge.

If you can’t figure it out … the Body Shot Challenge is when someone tries to punch you as many times as possible (usually wearing some sort of padding).

Paul volunteered to be Garcia’s guinea pig … but the dude was clearly shook.

“I am f*cked. I am SO f*cked,” Paul says before taking 20 straight punches to the gut and falling backward.

BTW, Garcia’s known to be a heavy hitter — he’s knocked all but 3 of his opponents. But, Logan takes the hits like a champ, though … and even takes one WITHOUT the padding!!

KSI, take notes for the rematch … if it ever happens.

Jermell Charlo I Wanna Fight Conor McGregor … Boxing Or MMA!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Jermell Charlo says he’s down to fight Conor McGregor for his next big scrap … and tells TMZ Sports it can be boxing OR MMA!!!

“We always on standby,” Charlo says … “Especially for an MMA fight. Why not?!”

Of course … Conor’s next opponent IS up in the air after he got mauled by Khabib in October — and Charlo’s also lookin’ for a fight after he takes on Tony Harrison Saturday night. 

So, could it happen? Maybe … especially ’cause Charlo seems down to sweeten the pot by steppin’ out of the ring and into the Octagon.

“It’s wherever he want to fight. Conor’s a grown man. He knows what to do. And, he knows who to call!”

In the meantime … Charlo’s tilt with Harrison on Saturday at Barclays Center is expected to be one of the biggest of the twin’s career — and he gave us a prediction for how it’ll all go down!!!

Farrah Abraham Sued by Boxing Promoter For Flaking On Fight

EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham backed down from a fight in the ring, but now she’s going to have to duke it out in court with the promoter who claims she screwed him over … and took his money.

As we reported … Farrah refused to fight in a charity celeb boxing match in Atlantic City in November, because she claimed she was promised a bunch of freebies including travel and hotel rooms, but the promoter, Damon Feldman, didn’t deliver.

Feldman’s throwing the first legal punch though … claiming Abraham took cash upfront, signed a contract and falsely promoted she was fighting in the match. He’s suing for $ 12,000.

The boxing promoter also recently threatened to take legal action against Farrah for defamation for talking trash about the event after she backed out, but there’s no mention of that in the legal docs.

You may recall … Farrah was replaced in the bout by “Mob Wives” star Natalie DiDonato, but she already has another challenger threatening to beat her ass.

Farrah’s manager, David Weintraub, tells us, “We are truly wishing Damon the best with his frivolous lawsuit. Everyone must realize this guy broke his own contract with us & runs this ‘so called’ business out of his studio apartment and doing ‘basement style event fights’ that no one watches.”

He continues, “He should work a little harder to pay for travel/accommodations for the talent and team and then perhaps the talent will actually come. Get ready for the counter suit from Farrah.”
