Boxer Ryan Garcia has withdrawn from his 9 July fight with Javier Fortuna to “manage my health and wellbeing”.
Garcia was last year ranked as the world’s 12th most marketable athlete because of his social media following.
“I’ve decided to take some time off to focus on becoming a stronger version of myself,” he said in an Instagram post.
“I hope to be back soon and am looking forward to stepping back into the ring when I am my healthiest self.”
Garcia’s decision to pull out of the bout with Fortuna comes just two weeks after it was announced.
The California-born fighter has previously spoken about his mental health struggles, having suffered anxiety and panic attacks when younger.
