Dominican Hector Luis Garcia (16-0, 10 KOs) attaches great importance to the opening rounds of his upcoming fight against the American “Tank” Gervonta Davis (27-0, 25 KOs), which will take place on the night of January 7-8 in Washington (USA) .
“Everything will depend on how the fight starts,” Garcia said. “I respect him and I know what he is capable of, so I’m going to take a closer look at him and see what the fight will be like in a few starting rounds.”
“I know I have a reach advantage. That could definitely be a big factor in this fight. But, at the same time, I have to take the fight moment by moment and pay attention to every detail. Against an opponent like Gervonta, this is especially important.”

At the same time, the Dominican is so confident in his victory that he is already thinking about who he will take on next.
“Ryan Garcia will be next,” he reveals the plans. – After I deal with Tank, I will get even for my compatriot Javier Fortuna (who lost to Ryan by knockout last July, approx. vRINGe). He wasn’t himself anymore when Ryan beat him up, and I’m going to make him pay for his elder abuse. I’ll teach him a lesson in Dominican boxing. Ryan generally talks more than boxing. If he devoted at least half of the time he spends to training, he would be Floyd Mayweather, Muhammad Ali and Roberto Duran in one bottle.
In turn, Gervonta Davis is worried that Ryan Garcia might be scared to fight him.
