Michael Jai White about Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis vs Ryan Garcia

During the interview, White expressed his admiration for Davis, commending his humble attitude even after a hard-earned victory. Moreover, White was seemingly impressed by the fact that Davis chose not to denounce Garcia even after defeating him in the manner he did.

“Tank got a whole lot of new fans behind him. I love it, I love his attitude and how he’s just like. Especially in these times there’s no honor anymore. For him to show that ‘this dude is suffering enough you know I don’t have to like berate him’. Especially when that’s the stronger man.”

Further, he even asserted that ‘Tank’ was better than his opponent by a long margin in the entire fight. A lot of fans do agree with this opinion as Davis was able to dominate Garcia for the majority of the rounds. “He was several levels above Ryan Garcia.”

Additionally, White addressed Garcia‘s claims of a mole in his camp, dismissing them as inconsequential and stretching for explanations. In the Hollywood actor’s view, having an opponent’s agent in your team does not change the outcome of the fight. “What could a mole do? This is ridiculous! People stretching for things like that I’m sorry it doesn’t matter!”
