Ryan Garcia Warns Tank Davis The Fight Won’t Be Easy
“King” Ryan Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs) is highly motivated for the biggest fight of his career. The native of Los Angeles, California will face reigning WBA Regular Lightweight champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (28-0, 26 KOs) on April 22 in Las Vegas. King Ryan is confident he takes care of business against Davis when they get into the ring.
Davis has a well-earned reputation as one of the hardest punchers in the sport, but Garcia is unbothered. During an interview on The Last Stand Podcast, the Californian said he has the tools to deal with Davis’s arsenal. More importantly, he plans to deliver some firepower of his own.
“I’m not scared; I’m not worried about his power . . . Power only matters if you don’t see it. You only get knocked out by the shot you don’t see.
I knock out people not because I have the strongest punch. It’s the sneaky punch that knocks you out. Can you hit him when he’s not expecting it? That’s all boxing is about.”
Davis – Garcia has been years in the making. While no world title is on the line, there is plenty of buzz for this grudge match. It’s a fight with legit mainstream appeal.
Although you have a contest featuring fighters who hit hard, Garcia thinks the fight could be more of a chess match. If this turn out to be the case, King Ryan feels his calm demeanor and boxing brain will be the difference. Whether it’s a battle of skills or an outright brawl, Garcia has this one promise for the fans on fight night:
“I’m gonna guarantee a classic fight. I promise you it will not be easy. If he expects it’s gonna be easy, he’s got a long night coming for him. He doesn’t think I have that dog . . . we’re about to see, let’s go!”
