Hector states that he wasn’t worried last week when he heard the news about Gervonta being arrested. Since it was something he had no control over, Garcia didn’t feel any concern about the fight possibly being canceled. He felt that even if the contest was called off, he would have found another opponent to fight

“I feel really good, and positive in the mindset and ready to give the fans what they want on Saturday night,” said Hector Luis Garcia to Fight Hub TV about how he feels physically ahead of his contest against Gervonta ‘Tank Davis.

I’m going to be the smarter fighter, and I’m going to go out with my hand raised through the biggest door possible,” said Hector when asked why he thinks he’s going to beat Tank Davis on Saturday night.

“I tried to stay positive, knowing things were out of my control, and you don’t know why but you’ve got to follow your path,” said Hector when asked what his reaction was to Tank Davis’  problems last week outside of the ring.

“I just stayed focused & stayed training, knowing that the fight would still happen. That was my mindset at the time. At this stage of the game, worrying about it being canceled or not, what could was it going to do me?

“I had to stay focused and know that there was going to be a fight and blaze a path forward. Whether the fight happened or not, it was out of my control. I also knew the possibility of the fight being canceled.

“If it had been canceled, then I would have fought somebody else in the future. I didn’t worry about that.

“When you’re a professional athlete like I am, you have to stay focused and know that you have a gift, and you have to be focused on the challenge ahead. You can’t let the external noise affect you.

“We know he’s ready for the fight regardless of what happened,” said Hector about Gervonta. “We’ll see who the best one is on Saturday night.
