Gervonta Davis versus Ryan Garcia: Twitter Rounds

While the fans’ enthusiasm is understandable, boxers seem equally gung-ho to get up and go. The ring awaits the arrival of the Princes, who, unable to bear the waiting game, have switched to cat-and-mouse shots on the web.

But hold your horses; back in September, through Instagram, Ryan revealed how the two were about to cross swords outside a nightclub. He shared that Davis had tried to grab his chain, but the security detail intervened and prevented the situation from escalating.

The Baltimorean got ticked off when Ryan went to check out on their actual face-off.

The latest round in their long-running feud flared up when KingRy alleged that Tank got emotional.

To which Tank replied.

And so the mini-skirmish chartered into everyone’s amusement.

With nil defeats since his debut, the southpaw from Baltimore has decided to wager his WBA (Super) Lightweight title on 7th January when he takes on the Puerto Rican Hector Luis. Davis boasts a monstrous 93% knock-to-win rate, which has few parallels in boxing today.

Prepare for the big fight!

KingRy, who is of Mexican heritage, matches Davis regarding maintaining an impeccable record. However, at 83%, his knockout-to-win rate falls behind the latter. But regarding sheer physicality, Garcia is standing 5 feet and 10 inches and with a reach of seventy inches balloons over Davis.

A fan suggested that Ryan should take up a fight with Australian George Kambosos Jr. to prepare for the big battle. Without batting an eyelid, Gervonta added that Garcia might be at the receiving end if that happens.
