Gervonta Davis on Ryan Garcia: “It’s over for this guy, give him a year or two”

Gervonta Davis isn’t buying Ryan Garcia’s rib injury excuse to try and whitewash what happened to him in his loss last April in their mega-clash on Showtime PPV.

The unbeaten WBA lightweight champion doesn’t understand why Ryan is still trying to varnish the truth of what happened in his seventh round quit job when he gave up on his knees.

Tank feels that Ryan (23-1, 19 KOs) lacks discipline & dedication to the sport and will be out of boxing within a year or two. He could be right. Another loss for the 25-year-old Ryan, who some fans see as a pampered, spoiled brat, and it’s over with for the social media influencer.

The end could come tonight for Ryan when he takes on Oscar Duarte (26-1-1, 21 KOs) in what is supposed to be a fight designed to lift up Kingry, cheer him up, and restore his self-belief. Duarte has other ideas, as he’s like a vulture that has spotted food for him to pick off and carry away.

Assuming Ryan doesn’t lose tonight, Gervonta needs to move in quickly to set up the rematch with him if he wants to get to him before he loses again. If Gervonta waits, it’ll be too late because Ryan’s career could come apart in his next fight when he’d matched tough by his promoters at Golden Boy against one of the champions at 140.

Tank Davis predicts Ryan Garcia’s career will be over soon

“Tbh, Idk why this kid [Ryan Garcia] is talking. It’s over for this guy. Give him a year or two. [He has] no discipline, no dedication. He showed y’all on [Showtime] All Access, and it went right over y’all head,” said Gervonta Davis on social media, reacting to Ryan Garcia insisting this week that he had an injury going into his mega-bout last April against Tank Davis.

Gervonta’s prediction of Ryan being done in a year or two could be right because the fights that his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, wants for him after tonight’s match against Duarte are ones that he’ll surely lose. De La Hoya wants to match Ryan againstĀ  Devin Haney or Teofimo Lopez next if he’s victorious tonight, and it’s hard to picture Kingry winning either of those tough fights.

“I did go in with a rib injury, a separated rib from sparring,” said Ryan Garcia to Brian Custer’s YouTube channel about his fight with Tank. “I had to go to the hospital. I couldn’t even run. This was about two weeks before [the Tank fight]. I decided I wasn’t going to pull out.”
