Ryan Garcia has apologised after the boxing superstar was caught cheating on his pregnant partner.
The 22-year-old, who holds the WBC Silver lightweight title, was filmed kissing another woman outside the N10 restaurant in Los Angeles recently.
The woman, who isn’t Garcia’s pregnant partner, has since been identified as Malu Trevejo.
A social media star, Trevejo has over 8.5 million followers on Instagram and TikTok.

Garcia and Trevejo were spotted dining at the restaurant before they were caught locking lips outside on the footpath.
Garcia’s partner Drea Celina lashed out on social media, saying he had been lying to her about his whereabouts.
“He tells me he’s training hard for this fight. But IG shows me this,” Celina wrote.
“7 weeks left till I give birth and this piece of s**t stay being disgusting.
“While he barely even sees Rylie his daughter with @catherinegamez. @Kingryang is a HORRIBLE PERSON.”
Celina was referring to Garcia’s child with previous partner Catherine Gamez.

According to Trevejo, Garcia told her he had a child but didn’t mention his pregnant partner.
“I met up with him because he was a very nice guy, he was very sweet,” she said.
“Yeah he told me he had a kid, but he never told me that he was engaged and he never told me that he had another baby coming.
“But he’s a really nice dude and I didn’t know that. Lets just not get into that. I just woke up and I’m seeing all this s**t.
“I did not know he was engaged and I texted him and asked him why didn’t he tell me and he said because they’re on and off.”
Garcia has since apologised and admitted he and Celina are still together.
“Just clearing some things I seen regarding Malu and Drea,” he wrote in a since-deleted social media post.
“Andrea and I aren’t engaged but we were still trying to fix our relationship.
“Malu and I went there as friends and we got caught up in the moment but there isn’t anything there, I didn’t intend to hurt anyone.
“This is my personal life and I’m not going to speak on this ever again.”
Garcia has a 20-0 record in his professional boxing career, including 17 knockouts.
The American is currently ranked sixth-best in the world among lightweight boxers, according to Ring Magazine.
Though he’s most known for boxing, he also has 6.7 million followers on Instagram and 420,000 on Twitter.
