Garcia has many matchups in contention, but one fight that lures ‘King Ry’ and the fans is a fight with Gervonta Davis. The 23-year-old is supremely keen on locking horns with rival ‘Tank’. The banter between the two seems far from reaching saturation.

Recently, ‘King Ry’ was in a chat with World Boxing News. Here, he spoke about his nemesis, Davis, and a potential fight with him.

He said, “That’s gonna be probably one of the biggest fights when it happens, me versus Tank, so it’s a perfect opportunity for me to show how much of a different level that I am than Tank.” 

“It will get people more interested. I’ve been trying to build this Tank fight for years and I think I’m doing a good job at it. Every time we fight we’re trending (on social media) and I think people are gonna go crazy when that fight actually happens,” He added.

Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis rank among the top-notch young boxing stalwarts of the modern era. That said, a fight between these two will determine who actually can cement his legacy as a true great.
