Ward and Valdez disagree over Davis-Garcia fight


Despite the fact that the deal has not been finally closed, the boxing community continues to talk about one of the most anticipated fights of the year – on April 15 in Las Vegas (USA), popular American knockouts Gervonta Davis (28-0, 26 KOs) and Ryan Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs).

The legendary Andre Ward is very
careful in his prediction: “You just have to admit that “Tank” Davis is the favorite. Dot. But there is a moment. This is definitely not one of those fights in which one of the fighters will certainly defeat the other. Moreover, Garcia has solid power in his fists. And he is a very fast fighter. I think it’s a great fight. And it is worth it to go on a paid broadcast. For such an event, you don’t feel sorry for the money – for PPV or for a ticket to the arena.

But the conqueror of two divisions, Oscar Valdez (30-1, 23 KOs), bet on the underdog, with whom he recently trained with the same coach – Eddie Reynoso: “And I’ll bet on Ryan. Yes, Ryan. I saw this kid in the hall. So I know for sure that he is definitely not just another cute boy who plays boxer. He’s really good. It’s true, he has punch, he has speed. This does not mean that I do not give “Tank” a single chance. I fully believe that he will win. Still, I’m leaning towards Garcia.”

In the meantime, rumor has it that Andre Ward is returning to boxing. The legendary champion commented on the sensational video. But Valdes is waiting for the date of the fight with his compatriot champion – it will be a confrontation in the spirit of Morales-Barrera.
