KingRy last fought against Javier Fortuna inside the ring on July 16. Soon after his victory, he called out Davis for a showdown. 

As Garcia was answering questions from the media after his win, he took the opportunity and said, “I’m not going back down to 135 for nothing, but I will fight Tank next. If Tank wants that at 140. But ay, I’m gonna record all the negotiations so you guys don’t make no headlines saying I’m ducking. If he want it, let’s get it.”
