Tank Davis Warns Ryan Garcia His Fans Are Not A Fight Factor
Multi-divisional champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (28-0, 26KO) and Ryan “King Ryan” Garcia (23-0, 19KO) are all set to battle at a 136-pound catchweight on April 22. With everything ready, Tank wants his opponent’s fanbase to know they can’t get in the ring for him.
This fight has been brewing since last year when it was first announced. The time to start the build-up for this big fight got underway with a huge hiccup as Davis was almost two hours late. The Baltimore power-puncher did own up to being extremely late by admitting it was very unprofessional and apologized to everyone, including Golden Boy Promotions.
DAVIS HAS A MESSAGE FOR GARCIA AND HIS FANS
During an interview after the press conference with Showtime, Tank was very candid about the danger of facing Garcia.
“I don’t think skill-wise he’s (Garcia) is on my level . . . I gotta still respect him as a fighter. But far as like again as a fighter, I feel as though he’s not on my level.”
“Danger? He got speed! Nice speed, nice power, and that’s about it . . . Yeah, he got a lot of Instagram followers, but they can’t fight for him. That’s what I was just telling him up there – ‘they can’t fight for you’. Oscar (De La Hoya) can’t fight for you, Bernard Hopkins can’t fight for you, your coach can’t fight for you.”
Like it or not Davis, has a valid point. When the chips are down, it’s only the fighter in that ring. Fans are excited and ready to see this fight live on Showtime PPV in Las Vegas.
