Gervonta Davis REACTS to Ryan Garcia’s knockout prediction

Gervonta Davis Ryan Garcia

By Chris Williams: Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis reacted angrily on Thursday on social media in responding to a video that Ryan Garcia posted the previous day in predicting a 2nd round knockout of Tank when the two eventually fight.

Tank Davis responded today by posting a photoshop image of Ryan’s head on Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya’s body. De La Hoya was wearing fishnets.

“You heard it here first…2nd round it’s over,” said Ryan Garcia in predicting a stoppage victory over Davis.

Ryan has been posting messages all week long taunting WBA lightweight champion Tank Davis, and trying to get him to give him a title shot.

Getting the Davis vs. Garcia fight put together won’t be easy, due to the two competing on different network platforms. Tank, 25, is with Premier Boxing Champions and fights on Fox and Showtime. For his part, Ryan Garcia is with Golden Boy and his contests are shown on the streaming giant DAZN.

For Davis to be willing to fight Garcia, it would need to be on pay-per-view, and that can’t happen. Ryan’s fights are shown on the subscription-based platform DAZN.

Ryan appears to have a bigger fan base than Tank Davis, even though he’s not a world champion. Tank has accomplished a lot more as a professional than Ryan, but that he doesn’t have the same following.

Gervonta Davis FURIOUS at Ryan Garcia

After Tank Davis posted a message saying he’s ready to start camp to presumably get ready for a fight against Ryan, Mayweather Promotions sent a Tweet to Tank telling him to “WAIT for it.” Trying to hold back Tank Davis isn’t going to be easy for his promoters seeing that he’s reached the limit of what he can take from the young upstart Garcia.

To be exact, Mayweather Promotions wants Gervonta to let the fight with the 21-year-old Ryan (20-0, 17 KOs) to build more and marinate since it’s not a big enough fight right now.

“Gervonta is out cold! He’s gone! Ryan Garcia has shocked the world. It’s over. It is done. Like I said, 2nd round KO,” said Ryan Garcia in predicting a stoppage win over Tank Davis.

“Golden Girl good at running at the mouth..💁🏼‍♀️🤦🏻‍♂️” Tank Davis continued in talking about Ryan Garcia. “You need me like dollars that’s owed to you. I don’t like to be played with,” said Tank.

It’s not going to be easy for Tank Davis to be able to turn the other cheek and let Ryan hammer him, and try and make him look silly on social media. Once the action starts up again, it shouldn’t be a problem for Gervonta to take the abuse he’s getting from Garcia.

Tank wants to fight Leo Santa Cruz on pay-per-view, but he’ll need to move down to super featherweight to get that contest done. Santa Cruz said yesterday that for the fight with Tank Davis to happen, he’s going to need to move down to 130 since he’s not going to move up to 135 to face him.

Kingry Garcia has two options in the near future for his next fight. He can either face Jorge Linares in July at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, as his promoters want, or he can take on the Luke Campbell vs. Javier Fortuna winner. Garcia seems to be more interested in fighting the winner of the Campbell-Fortuna fight. Linares is a risky fight for Ryan, and he could lose that one.
