Ryan Garcia shows off new lion tattoo on chest after stunning win over Luke Campbell
BOXING sensation Ryan Garcia has added some new ink to his body following his stunning comeback win over Luke Campbell.
The Golden Boy Promotions prodigy stopped the British lightweight earlier this month with a vicious body shot.
Garcia, 22, showed the heart of a champion to recover from a second-round knockdown to finish the Olympic gold medallist in the seventh.
And the 135lb prospect has added a tattoo to his chest worthy of the grit and determination he showed in what his toughest fight to date.
Garcia recently had a lion with a crown on its head permanently etched on his chest, appropriately putting it on his heart.
The baby-faced bruiser shared his new ink with his millions of Instagram followers, accompanying the post with crown and lion emojis.
Garcia's revealing of his new tat came after he stunned the boxing world by revealing he intends to hang up his gloves when he's 26.

The WBC interim lightweight champion told Sirius XM: "I'm gonna move on to inspire people in a different way and to play my part in this battle against hate and confusion in America."
Garcia's sights are currently set on a showdown with fellow lightweight prospect Gervonta Davis, who he had a heated FaceTime call with during an appearance on the Hot Boxin' With Mike Tyson podcast.
He told Davis: "Two rounds, baby, two rounds. Two rounds. You're going to sleep.
"It's not gonna hurt. I promise you it's not gonna hurt. You're gonna need a ladder to hit me. How tall are you? You're 5-foot-5.
"You're gonna need a ladder to hit me. You're gonna need a StairMaster. Boy, you won't be able to touch me.
"You ain't never fought a 135er in your life. This is different. I don't care what you say. You ain't got nothing."
Knockout artist Davis was incensed by Garcia's rant, repeatedly saying: "We're fighting next."
That declaration was music to the ears of King Ry, who replied: "He said it. The world knows. He said it. Next fight. There's no going back now."
