Ryan Garcia: Gervonta Davis is My Loma Fight, I Want Him & Lopez in 2021!

Unbeaten lightweight contender Ryan Garcia wants a showdown with Gervonta Davis - sooner than later.

Garcia will return on December 5th, when he faces Luke Campbell for the WBC's interim-title. The winner will become the mandatory challenger to Devin Haney.

And this coming Saturday night, Davis and Leo Santa Cruz will collide at the Alamodome in Texas - in the headline bout of a Showtime Pay-Per-View event.


Last weekend, Teofimo Lopez arrived in force when he won a twelve round unanimous decision over the heavily favored Vasiliy Lomachenko to unify the WBO, WBA, WBC Franchise, IBF titles at 135-pounds.

Garcia was not surprised by the outcome. He views Davis as the fight to earn him proper amount of respect and place him with the elite. He wants to face both Davis and Lopez in 2021. 

"I wasn't shocked. I gave the edge to Teofimo because he's a bigger man. This isn't Lomachenko's weight class and he should move down. The new, hungry fighter was ready to take over. I look forward to my chance at all those belts," Garcia said to Sky Sports.

"I want Gervonta. That's my Lomachenko fight - the fight that people don't think I can win. Then I want to challenge Teofimo. Then Haney. In 2021, Gervonta and Teofimo are the guys I want."

With so much talent in the lightweight division, Garcia expects a lot of high level fights in the future.

"The four horsemen - Ryan Garcia, Teofimo Lopez, Gervonta Davis and Devin Haney. These will be amazing fights for the future," Garcia said.

"I'm the most underestimated lightweight in the world. They fail to give me credit. I'm hoping for more respect but, honestly, I don't care."

[QUOTE=1Eriugenus;20838821]To me Ryan has a better chance against Gervonta than Haney. TBH can't see any man at 135 beats Haney. I hope Teofimo can keep trimming to 135 because this looks like boxing's best chance to replicate the great old…

Campbell should show us what Garcia is made of. So far we haven't seen anything

I like Ryan but he should prove himself against Haney before he takes his biggest step up to fight Gervonta. Davis should fight Lopez next. Promoters should work together on this one ASAP.
