Against the backdrop of information that the lightweight superfight between the Americans Gervonta Davis (28-0, 26 KOs) and Ryan Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs) may not take place, although it seemed that all obstacles had already been overcome, Garcia turned to the opponent the day before and urged to sign the contract on updated terms.
“Stop running, Tank! Stop hiding from me. Stop sitting on the sly behind Al Haymon. No clause about revenge. Winner takes all, coward!” – Ryan was angry and offered in the hearts.
Recall that earlier Garcia’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya said that the snag is just in the point about revenge. More precisely, in who will broadcast it:
“Revenge is activated only if Ryan wins. OK, no problem. But I think that in this case we automatically become side A. It has always been like this, this is how it is accepted here. This is normal for boxing. We are not reinventing the wheel… We have already made serious concessions several times already. Ryan agreed to go first to the ring, we agreed on a penalty in case of his superiority. We agreed that the revenge will take place only if Garcia wins. But we can’t go for this (broadcasting the second fight not on DAZN, but on Showtime), because we must first of all think about the interests of our TV partner. I hope they make the right decision and don’t derail this superfight.”
The Davis-Garcia bout is tentatively scheduled for April 15 in the US.
Meanwhile, ex-coach Joshua surprised Gervonta and Ryan with a bold prediction.
