One of the most anticipated (perhaps even the most anticipated) fights in boxing is tentatively scheduled for April 23 in Las Vegas (USA) – popular American lightweight knockouts Gervonta Davis (27-0, 25 KOs) and Ryan Garcia will meet in a head-to-head fight in a contractual weight. (23-0, 19 KOs).

It was assumed that at first both would hold one intermediate fight in January. On January 7, Gervonta will meet with the WBA champion at 59 kg Dominican Hector Luis Garcia – they will fight for the Davis title (WBA World lightweight). Ryan planned (and even signed a contract) for a super lightweight fight with Filipino Mercito Gesta, but then changed his mind.

thinksthat it’s really not that simple: “Why did he refuse the intermediate fight? I think he wants to be drugged. It is for this reason that I insisted on mandatory testing from VADA. There are two options: either doping, or he does not want to strain his body twice with weight loss. Did you notice that now he looks bigger than before? Not the fact that these are illegal drugs. Maybe he’s just a little bloated. And I know for sure that he has a problem with alcohol. In short, one of these options.
