Ryan Garcia, despite his recent defeat, appears to be as confident as he was before. On 22 April, ‘KingRy’ was handed the first defeat of his career by Gervonta Davis in Las Vegas via a stoppage in round 7. Not to mention, he was knocked down in the second round and outclassed in many other rounds.
