Ryan Garcia: If Left Up To Me, I'd Fight Gervonta Davis Tomorrow

Super featherweight contender Ryan Garcia had all he could handle on Saturday night, when he won a tougher than expected ten round majority decision over Carlos Morales at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio.

Garcia (16-0, 13 KOs) appeared to get stunned in the later rounds, and he admitted to going through some fatigue, but still managed to secure enough points in the bank to secure the win. 

“This fight gets me up there into the rankings, in better position for a title shot in one or two more fights,” Garcia said to the Los Angeles Times.


The one man that Garcia continues to call out is WBA super featherweight world champion Gervonta Davis (20-0, 19 KOs).

The two fighters have continuously traded words on social media.

Garcia would accept a fight with Davis as soon as possible, but the young prospect intends to follow the future layout that his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions, decides for him.

Garcia views a showdown with Davis as eventually becoming a fight worthy of pay-per-view.

“The match between he and I one day would be pay-per-view status,” Garcia said. “I just love that fight because it will be the biggest I can get.”

“I just want to lean on my team to make the best decisions for me because, knowing myself, I won’t say no to anybody. So the best option for me is to trust Oscar and everybody at Golden Boy, because if they left it up to me, I’ll fight Gervonta Davis tomorrow.”

De La Hoya, who during his pro career was one of the most popular boxers in the world, is very impressed with the large following that Garcia has been able to generate in such a short amount of time.

“It’s incredible the reaction this kid is generating … so many just love him, and while others may hate him, they all love to watch him fight,” said Oscar De La Hoya.

Slow down, Oscar Jr.. Get some fights and experience under your belt first. Tank would dismantle the version of Garcia that I just saw

He doesn't even seem to be improving at all.. Davis would toy with him and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

[QUOTE=Noelanthony;19068452]Listen any fighter can have a bad performance it is normal it’s just that Morales was cherry picked as he is a non puncher and the way he got hit he was hanging on like he got hit by James…
