Two division champion Timothy Bradley is backing Gervonta Davis to stops Ryan Garcia in a battle of undefeated up-and-coming stars.

Davis and Garcia have been trading words since last year.

Garcia saw action back in January, when he picked up the biggest win of his career when he knocked out Olympic gold medal winner Luke Campbell.

In June, Davis secured one of the biggest wins of his career when he jumped up to 140-pounds and stopped unbeaten Marios Barrios to capture the WBA "regular" junior welterweight title.

"You have two young, exciting guys. One at the top of his game in Davis, and one that could be someone special, but still hasn't proven it in Garcia. Garcia has the hype around him, the followers on social media. He has speed, and he has a size advantage over Davis. Garcia also has a tremendous left hook; he seems to be getting better training under the tutelage of Eddy Reynoso and Canelo Alvarez's camp," Bradley explained to ESPN.

"Garcia got caught with a punch that he didn't see against Luke Campbell, but the way he responded afterwards, that takes a lot of heart and mental toughness to get back in the fight. I think Davis and Garcia need each other. I don't think we've seen the best of Davis. I don't think we've seen the best of Garcia. I think they can bring out the best of each other if they fight, because both have something to fear. Fear can take you to do great things, do something that you didn't know you had in you."

If they eventually collide, Bradley expects Davis to eventually catch up with Garcia at some point in the bout - and then finish him off once he gets him hurt.

"I have to go with the guy with more experience at a higher level and that's Davis. Tank will set him up, he will play defense and lure Garcia in and he will find a way to land that kill shot and hurt Garcia. Davis is one of the best finishers in boxing, and once he hurts you, it's over," Bradley said.
