Gervonta Davis On Ryan Garcia-‘He’s Getting His Ass Whooped’
Coming up Saturday night in Las Vegas, unbeaten, multi-division world champ Gervonta “Tank” Davis gets set for the highest profile PPV of his career. This, as he battles fellow unbeaten Ryan Garcia in a highly anticipated twelve round showdown between two of boxing’s top drawing fighters in the smaller weight classes.
At Thursday’s final press conference for the bout at the T-Mobile Arena on the Vegas strip, Davis made clear he’s not coming into this one with any other motive than to demolish Garcia.

“He’s gonna feel me for sure. I am what I say I am. I’m that guy. I didn’t get all the way here for no reason. I put the work in and I got those guys out of there. He’s gonna see it come Saturday night for sure,” Davis told the media Thursday.
““He’s getting his ass whooped. It’s gonna be an exciting fight. I’m excited to be here. I don’t know about him, but I’m coming with some stuff for sure. He doesn’t have the fundamentals at all. If Joe Goossen is that great of a trainer, he’s gotta fix his fundamentals. All he’s got is that weak hook. That’s all he’s relying on.
He’s delusional if he thinks he’s knocking me out. That’s it.”
Davis has reason to be confident. He’s wiped out 24 opponents in 28 wins by KO. And, that includes one punch destructions of former two division champ Leo Santa Cruz in October 2020 and more recently, contender “Rolly” Romero last Summer. Davis also beat up Hector Luis Garcia (no relation to Ryan) in a TKO win back in January.

There is no doubt the popular Southern Californian Garcia (23-0), is confident of what he will do with the Baltimore native Davis, as well. He told the media Thursday,
“He’s gonna find out exactly why I’m here. You don’t get to this position without having something special. Anybody can see that. We’ll just have to wait and see when I’m in there. He’ll see it when I’m in there.”
But, there’s no disputing that Davis has been in with better overall competition and has been much more active over the last 24 months, by fighting four times to just twice for Garcia.
The wait is almost over to find out whether either fighter will land the big shot to get the other one out or if it’s all just been talk building to Saturday.
