Following Garcia’s win over Luke Campbell, the beef between the two Americans has reached a different level altogether.

Recently, ‘KingRy’ took to Twitter and posted a snippet of his podcast alongside Mike Tyson, where Gervonta Davis virtually joined the duo. He tweeted, ”He can’t go back on his word now.”

On the show, one of the show hosts called ‘Tank’. Tyson handed over the call to Garcia and once again, the pair engaged in a verbal spar. Garcia asserted, “2 rounds, baby, 2 rounds. You going to sleep.

To this statement, Davis reverted, “He got dropped by somebody that can’t even hit. Mike, if I would have hit him, you know I would’ve killed him after that.”

Garcia continued, “Hey keyword, ‘if’.”

‘Tank’ concluded, “I am gonna fight him. I’ll fight him next.”
