And further concerns over the boxer's mental well-being were voiced over the weekend after he shared a video to his social media channels claiming he was dead.

Thankfully, Garcia's ex-wife, Andrea Celina, has been in contact with him since the concerning post.

However, she insists the 25-year-old is far from mentally stable.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Celina penned: "If all my followers who are believers can you please pray for Ryan. We are not together and I've been in contact with him and he may seem fine but he is not.

"I know in my heart he is being heavily oppressed. This is not a troll, I'm genuinely concerned and so is all his family members.

"We are not part of any of this and want him to get better but this IS REAL. Pray for him."

On the other hand, Garcia's dad, Henry, has been quick to downplay his son is going through a mental health crisis.

Instead, the father insists Garcia is simply 'trolling' his followers.

"Yes Ryan is ok, he’s just trolling the wrong way," he wrote.

UNILAD has reached out to Garcia's promoter for comment.

Garcia celebrated the arrival of his third child in January - his second with Celina.

But just hours after he gushed over his new son, Garcia announced he and Celina had separated.

In a now-deleted social media post, the boxer penned: "As I step into a new chapter in my life, it's with a heavy heart to share that Drea and I have decided to divorce.

"While this decision marks the end of our marriage, it's important to emphasize that our relationship as co-parents remains our top priority."

He continued: "Throughout our years together, Drea has been an incredible partner and an even more extraordinary mother to our two children.

"I'm deeply grateful for the years we shared and for her unwavering commitment to our family.

"As we move forward, my focus remains on the health and wellbeing of our two beautiful kids. They are and will always be my first priority.

"I'm fully committed to working with Drea to make sure our children's needs and best interests always guide our path forward.

"I believe our mutual devotion to our children is rock solid, and I trust that together we will provide them with the love, support and stability that they need."
