“It was good. He was ready to go ahead and do it.” Jervonta “Tank” Davis said after slightly shoving Hector Luis Garcia during his post-press conference staredown on Thursday. Just to check the temperature. Davis, who will fight Garcia in the main event of the same pay-per-view this Saturday night, is a hot commodity in today’s boxing arena. When asked EN news What he did when the top fighters called him, his undefeated power punch appeared handy.
“That’s more money for me,” he said. I will fight them all. One big-name fighter to face this year is the mighty and popular Ryan Garcia, who will take on Hector Luis Garcia this weekend in Washington, DC. “He’s making a bold statement,” Davis said in response to a question from Ryan Garcia about knocking out Davis in two rounds. Davis continued: “It has to live in this state. “It’s going to be a tough fight – definitely for him.”
When asked if he had a prediction for this weekend, Davis offered little thought. “Seven or eight rounds,” he said after a moment. Hector Luis Garcia is undefeated himself, but Saturday’s fight will benefit Davis, despite being widely seen as a tune-up for Davis before taking on Ryan Garcia. The guy has a reputation for being a badass on the show. Last year, he shocked Chris Colbert in a fight he shouldn’t have won before claiming the WBA junior lightweight title.
That being said, Davis is clearly expected to win Saturday night in DC. After all, he won titles in several weight divisions and defeated all but two of his twenty-seven opponents.
