Ryan Garcia puts Steelers’ JuJu Smith-Schuster through gruesome Body Shot Challenge
JuJu Smith-Schuster is one tough dude. However, even the Pittsburgh Steelers star wide receiver had to succumb to the heavy hands of boxing champ Ryan Garcia as the pair engaged in what turned out to be an entertaining Body Shot Challenge.
Here’s a look at the clip, which may have been highly enjoyable for us, but probably not as much for JuJu (h/t DAZN Boxing on Twitter):

Gut check time. Literally. Although to be fair to Smith-Schuster, he did take those body shots like a champ. The first few at least. Once Ryan Garcia shifted to his right hand, JuJu was only able to take a couple more shots before falling to the ground. The Steelers WR quickly got back to his feet, though, so we’d say that was a standing eight count.
Smith-Schuster probably came in to see Garcia for a bit of physical training during the NFL offseason. After all, he was dressed in full boxing gear, so he probably had a few rounds of sparring. Now that’s something we’d like to see. Maybe he also likes to dance around in the boxing ring as he does in all his viral TikTok videos?
Whatever the case may be, JuJu Smith-Schuster appeared to have provided Ryan Garcia with some support (as a punching bag?) as the latter trains for his highly-anticipated bout against boxing legend Manny Pacquiao in the coming months. Garcia is set to take on the biggest challenge of his career as he goes toe-to-toe against one of the greatest fighters the sport has ever seen. Expect fireworks.
