Ryan Garcia: I'm Going To Get Disrespectful With Gervonta Davis

Gervonta Davis was charged with simple battery domestic violence in February after a video showed him getting into a physical altercation with his former girlfriend and the mother of his child in Miami. Davis later turned himself in to Coral Gables Police.

Ryan Garcia has been jawing back and forth with Davis in recent weeks, and he believes Davis’ actions outside of the ring will have a negative impact on the WBA lightweight titlist and 25-year-old Davis (23-0, 22 KOs).

“It’s all going to cost him,” Garcia told Fight Hype. “That’s stress on the human body. He’s f--king up big time, you know what I mean? It’s going to catch up to him when he fights me. I’m not a person that is going to lay down on him … I’m coming up with a lot of things from people to make this fight even more hyped. I’m chasing him down, and I’m going to get disrespectful with him as much as I can to make the fight happen. I think he wants to cash out. He wants to make a lot of money. That’s what he’s focused on.”

Garcia is positioning himself to fight with Davis sometime down the line. In the immediate future, it appears both fighters have other tests in front of them. Garcia (20-0, 17 KOs) is slated to fight Jorge Linares while Davis has his eyes set on making his pay per view debut against Leo Santa Cruz sometime this summer in Los Angeles.

Davis is coming off a 12th round TKO win over Yuriorkis Gamboa in his lightweight debut, but Garcia feels that his opposition has not stacked up to be a significant one.

“All the fighters he fought, none of them are strong fighters,” said Garcia. “They’re not even strong fighters. And they’re not even strong punchers. They just throw sh-t. I haven’t seen him fight one person that has any fighting chance. Have you seen him [Tank] fight anyone with power?”

[QUOTE=jinx_htx;20495749]I don't care how good Ryan Garcia is in the ring, saying "I'm going to be disrespectful" is just gay. Being disrespectful isn't something you announce it's something you just do, because it comes natural to you because it's part…
