Ryan Garcia's wish after his KO win: 'I'm mosting likely to fight Tank Davis'

Ryan Garcia

Despite The Fact That Ryan Garcia looked better than ever before with a sixth-round KO of Javier Fortuna on Saturday in Los Angeles.

it seems like we're moving further away from an extremely battle against Gervonta Davis.

The outstanding performance-- knockdowns in Rounds 4, 5 as well as 6-- was Garcia's second successive battle at 140 extra pounds after he campaigned at 135, where Davis still resides.

"Storage tank" Davis did complete at junior welterweight when, a June 2021 TKO of Mario Barrios…

However the weight variation feels like yet one more wrench in the spokes of any initiatives to practiced a Garcia-Davis offer.

" I'm never ever going back down to 135, I'm mosting likely to stay at 140, I'm mosting likely to fight 'Container' Davis if he desires it at 140," Garcia, 23, stated.

"And if he doesn't, then I'll go deal with some 140-pounder. But he's going to want to do it ... there's mosting likely to be troubles if he don't desire to do it.

" I understand that I'm dedicated to it and also I informed everybody that that's where my heart's positioned and also I'm not mosting likely to waver for nobody."

It's clear that Garcia genuinely desires to fulfill Davis in the ring, however it's much less certain just how

Davis feels concerning combating a bigger guy at a higher weight-- Garcia is 5-foot-10, Davis is 5-foot-5 and a half.

Davis did tweet later that he would certainly be back by the end of the year.
