With a sensational finish over Luke Campbell, Ryan Garcia has accrued vast fame and glory. On top of this, fans have already drawn comparisons between him and his foe, Gervonta Davis. The duo has targeted each other enormous times through their social handles and interviews. But recently, Garcia staggered everyone after apologizing to his rival over a few remarks.
In an interview with Mike Coppinger, ‘KingRy’ opened up on the ‘Tank’ fight and reasoned his apology towards him.
“You know what, like I look back at the video and feel kind of bad. I don’t feel like I should have went at his (Gervonta Davis) height,” said the 22-year-old.
‘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.
‘KingRy’ will employ his skill sets against Devin Haney first. This fight is expected to go down by March-June 2021. Post that Garcia will be free to take on any and every lightweight in the roster.
As Garcia believes, this is the biggest lightweight fight in boxing history where two prominent young guns will collide with each other in their prime. Also, the pair desperately wanting to get their hands on each other just adds up to the hype.
However, the fight might lose its sheen if Haney stops Garcia.
Not just ‘King Ry’ fans, but the whole boxing community wishes to see this ferocious battle taking place as quickly as possible. It is clear that despite the apology, the trash-talking hasn’t ceased.
