‘King Ry’ continued, “All I am gonna say is, Gervonta, even if you were my height, you wouldn’t beat me, man!… Let’s see what you can do and let’s get it on, that’s how I really want to say it.”

Garcia asserted that such throwing of shots at each other is just to add-on to the hype and entice the fans. He admitted having crossed the line, but that did not stop ‘KingRy’ from warning ‘Tank’ over a 2-round knockout.
