Following a victory over Luke Campbell, Ryan Garcia has been calling out WBA lightweight champion Gervonta Davis. Although Garcia is the WBC Interim champion which mandates him to fight WBC title-holder Devin Haney, ‘KingRy’ has been adamant about facing ‘Tank’ Davis next.

He even threatened to knock out Davis within two rounds of their collision. However, Ryan Garcia has revealed that he has an even bigger fight in his sight.

Speaking with FightHype.com, Garcia said, “We are working on a fight right now, it should be finalized this week. But that’s just an estimate, I don’t know for sure. It’s gonna be a huge fight. It’s gonna be a fight that nobody’s gonna expect. So, it’s amazing.”

The WBC Interim champion has further explained why he has postponed Gervonta Davis. Although he is still confident of knocking out the WBA champion, Garcia wants to seal the other fight.

He continued, “Just know my fight with Tank, I will knock him out in two rounds. I am putting Tank on the side for one fight. You guys got to really think about this. Why would I put Tank on the side, if it wasn’t a huge mega-fight?”

Ryan Garcia vs Manny Pacquiao on the line?

Before returning to fight Campbell, Garcia had desired to fight Manny Pacquiao. If booked, this fight would be a clash of generations within the squared circle and feature a wily veteran vs an up-and-coming star.

Apart from ‘KingRy’, a boxing clash with UFC star Conor McGregor is also in the talks for Manny Pacquiao. So, the octuple champion can look at all the options before finalizing his return. As he is still the WBA welterweight champion, we can expect a few more fights from Pacquiao before he hangs his gloves.
