Gabi Garcia’s next opponent in RIZIN has been revealed, and this time it appears she’ll be fighting someone her own size.
Garcia will fight Russian boxer Oksana Gagloeva. Garcia will fight Gagloeva in the first round of the RIZIN Fighting World Grand Prix 2017. The fight will take place July 30th at the famous the Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
While Garcia will have a height advantage over Gagloeva, she won’t have a large weight advantage over her next opponent.
Garcia is 6’2 and fights over 200 pounds. Gagloeva is 5’10 and fights at a similar weight.
Garcia will fight two times in the month of July. She is scheduled to fight this weekend at the Shoot Boxing Girl’s S-Cup 2017.
