Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis is “ready” to struggle Ryan Garcia of their scheduled tremendous struggle in April.
The Baltimore light-weight dispatched Hector Luis Garcia on Saturday when a left hand rocked the Dominican within the eighth spherical, prompting him to retire on his stool earlier than the beginning of the ninth spherical.
Thought not official, the younger American famous person are pencilled in for a highly-anticipated showdown on 15 April in Las Vegas.
“I was trying to beat him mentally,” Davis stated after his newest victory. “I was trying to trick him with my hands and my eyes and things like that because he’s a tough fighter.
“I had to bait him. … God willing, I’m ready for the fight [with Ryan Garcia]. It’s scheduled for April. He’s been training; he’s been talking.”
One hurdle to the struggle happening can be Davis standing trial on 16 February in Baltimore for his alleged involvement in a hit-and-run incident from November 2020 with 14 costs in opposition to the WBA light-weight world champion.
Ryan Garcia’s response to Davis’ newest win was brief: “No more talking let’s get it on.”
One of Garcia’s greatest challenges is to keep away from Davis’ photographs or take up the facility he possesses in each fists, which causes his final opponent main points.
Hector Luis Garcia later remarked that Davis’ photographs blurred his imaginative and prescient, stating: “I didn’t know where I was when he hit me with that shot. My head still hurts. I couldn’t see, but my vision is back.”
