Ryan Garcia ensured that making the leap as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world even above Salt “Canelo” Alvarez if he manages to organize a fight against Gervonta Davis and manages to defeat him.
“About Canelo, about everyone. I swear to you. I promise you. That’s how it will be. It would be monumental,” he said. the mexican american boxer in an interview for the magazine Sports Illustrated.
For now, on July 16, Ryan García will face Javier Fortuna in Los Angeles California. Previously, he easily defeated Emmanuel Tagoe on April 9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, by unanimous decision by scorecards of 119-108, 118-109 and 119-108.
For several years, García has tried to organize this lawsuit against Gervonta Davis the fight and even the two agreed to face each other, but the fight fell apart when Ryan began negotiating with Manny Pacquiao. However, the Mexican American already warned:
Golden Boy won’t be able (to prevent it). They can’t, I won’t allow it. There is no way. Go to war to fight with ‘Tank’. I’m ready, at the end of the day it’s the fight where I’ll get respect and I deserve it.”
I also talked to Leonard EllerbePresident of Mayweather Promotionslooking to finalize this possible fight against Gervonta.
I am ready for the challenge. I am very confident that I can beat him. He is a great fighter, don’t get me wrong. But I am a much better fighter and I want to show everyone what I do and that is the fight to be made. Everyone wants to see it and I’m ready now.”
scar de la Hoya trusts Ryan Garcia’s claims
For your part Scar de la Hoyawho was “Canelo’s” promoter for almost a decade and now works with Ryan Garcia, assures that he is ready to succeed him on the throne as the best of all time.
“I feel like I have a unique perspective having been through what I’ve been through,” De La Hoya told Bleacher Report. “I can tell a fighter what to do and what not to do, what works and what doesn’t.”
“When you tell him something, he listens. He is a 23-year-old boy who listens what you have to say, pays attention and wants to learn. That is a valuable asset. Do you listen me. Listen to the executive of Golden Boy, Bernard Hopkins. Value what we say.
“It has many advantages. The fact that that it is already so well known is absolutely important and help you increase your popularity. He can turn a lot of people into boxing fans who wouldn’t be,” said the “Golden Boy” about the young boxer who has a record of 22 wins, no losses and 18 knockouts.
De La Hoya suggested that the Gervonta Davis fight could happen in the next 12 months.
De La Hoya said a fight with Garcia is possible regardless of Gervonta being represented by Mayweather, though could be much easier if the fighter decides to become a free agent, as it has a complicated relationship with “Money”, and negotiates its own agreements.
