When Ryan was asked if he has a celebrity crush he wants to holler at, he surprized everyong by saying: “I’m always going to shout out Selena Gomez.”
A rising star in the world of boxing, the 20-year-old has gained a lot of fans and has over 1.7 million people following him on Instagram. However, he says he always had his eyes on Selena. "I know she's probably not looking for a man right now," he told TMZ, "but I would protect her, you know."
When the reporter told him that Selena is currently single, Ryan decided to publicly ask Selena out. "She's single, so lemme shoot my shot. Lemme take you out!"
The professional boxer in the Super Featherweight division agreed with the reporter when he said the two could be "the best-looking couple in Hollywood." Ryan responded, "That's what I'm saying."
