Coach Bullet Gordon Says Ryan Garcia Quit Against Tank Davis
Sadly for Team Garcia, “King” Ryan “Garcia has suffered his first professional loss. The talented Californian tested his might and was defeated by the heavy-handed Regular WBA lightweight champion, Gervonta “Tank” Davis. After a fairly competitive match, Garcia (23-1, 19 KO’s) was forced to a knee by a debilitating body shot from which he couldn’t recover. While it’s certainly bad enough to lose, the backlash from the critics and insiders is sure to be worse. Already there are folks like Cromwell “Bullet” Gordon, head coach of Rolando “Rolly” Romero (14-1, 12 KO’s) openly chastising Garcia.
In a recent interview with Fight Hype, Coach Bullet was quick to point out how he felt that Garcia actually quit. Without question, comments like this will reignite past talking points that Garcia is not a mentally tough fighter.
“I think he quit! He [Ryan Garcia] could have got up and fought some more. He just ain’t got no heart. That’s what boxing is short of – the guys with intangibles; the heart, the mindset, the will to win. He don’t have the intangibles to win!
He was like ‘hurry up and get to ten’, in his mind! It was like the weirdest shit ever! I lost a lot of respect for him! I already knew he didn’t have it but, on a stage like that, you got to get up.”
A FUTURE SHOWDOWN?!
As it stands , both Romero and Ryan Garcia have one loss on their records and both men lost to Gervonta Davis. Each man will be looking to return to the ring in impressive fashion. Yet, it could be a good idea for them to fight one another. While Garcia certainly has a large fan base, Rolly definitely drummed up great interest to make his own outing with Tank a very grand affair. Facing each other should prove to make for another very high profile and lucrative prizefight.
King Ryan has already announced that he will be moving up to 140 to stage his next bout. Luckily, Romero is also huge at 135. He should have no problem meeting Garcia in the ring as a super lightweight. This budding bad blood between the camps, combined with vying for a rematch with Tank, would likely provide even more fuel for this duel to be officially contracted.
Clearly, this is all speculation. However, it would be very exciting news to hear that Ryan Garcia and Rolando Romero are now setting their sights on one another. Regardless of who they opt to face next, 3Kings Boxing will be here to report all the latest developments.
