”You must kno sum sh*t I don’t,”Tank‘ added.

The WBC interim lightweight champion couldn’t hold himself back and responded to Davis’ tweet. He again hopped on and wrote, “You’re a grown man, make a call and find out.”

The ‘Tank’ responded to ‘KingRy’s fiery tweet right after that.

He wrote, “Say less, B**ch!

The WBC silver champion, Ryan Garcia, left his fans thinking about whom will he really confront in his next outing to the ring. Gervonta Davis jumping in between and the duo having a back-and-forth made ‘KingRy’s fans think that this supposed fight announcement was for the undefeated ‘Tank’.

With the interim WBC belt under his wing, it lines Garcia up for a fight with Devin Haney, who is the WBC 135-pound champion. However, a fight between Garcia and Davis looks on the cards given what has transpired over the last few weeks.

Was Ryan Garcia hinting at a fight with Gervonta Davis?

The 22-year-old Garcia is one staunch name in the world of boxing. Since his debut, he has struck every boxing enthusiast’s fascination with his unparalleled skill sets and undefeated reign.

To achieve his ultimate aim of lightweight gold, ‘KingRy’ will have to go up against the champions. If he gets past ‘The Dream’ in his next fight, his bout with ‘Tank’ will be inevitable.
