Ryan Garcia Says Davis is the Next Opponent After Javier Fortuna
Ryan Garcia Says Davisis the Next Opponent After Javier Fortuna. Boxing News Ryan Garcia spent nearly his entire press conference on Tuesday talking about he wants to fight Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis next, and barely mentioning his opponent Javier Fortuna. It was an odd press conference, given Ryan’s focus on relentlessly talking about Tank Davis (27-0, 25 KOs). When you devote an entire press conference to talking about Tank, a fighter you don’t face in your next fight, that’s a red flag. Ryan might have made the mistake of naming Tanks as his track record is terrible when it comes to summoning top-tier fighters.
For some reason, Ryan had a habit of looking past scheduled opponents and talking about other fights instead of keeping his focus on the task at hand. The way Ryan spends so much time talking about the fight against WBA ‘regular’ lightweight champion Tank Davis, it looks like he really needs a serious cash fight. It doesn’t matter if Ryan is easily crushed by Tank because the money he will get for the fight will likely match his net worth of $10 million. There’s money to be made for Ryan, but the fans are the ones to lose because he doesn’t stand a chance to beat a fighter as talented as Tank.
Ryan vs Javier Fortuna on July 16
Ryan’s performances in his last two fights against Emmanuel Tagoe and Luke Campbell. Most likely he will lose if he fights with one of the lightweight boxers like Devin Haney, Vasyl Lomachenko, or Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz. Ryan (22-0, 18 KOs) still have to beat Javier Fortuna (37-3-1, 26 KOs) on July 16 in their headliner at DAZN at Crypto Arena in Los Angeles, California. If Ryan loses that fight, he can forget the fight against Tanks in 2022.
“After that, I’ll go after Tank and I’ll beat him up,” Ryan Garcia said at a press conference Tuesday for his fight against Javier Fortuna on July 16. Not many boxing fans really believed that Ryan would beat Tank. They just saw this as a money grab on Ryan’s part and saw it as a pathetic scam.
“Obviously, I don’t want to see Fortuna too much, but that’s all I want. That’s all I see. I don’t care about anyone else right now,” Ryan said of his desire to fight Gervonta Davis next.
“The fans want it, I’m sure of it, and I want it. He [Tank] shouted at me throughout the last fight, ‘I’m next. So be the man who keeps your word, let it be next. I don’t want to hear anything else. And I don’t want to hear other people’s names. I don’t care about that. I care about Gervonta Davis. Come on. “That’s what I want,” Ryan said.
