Ryan Garcia loses to Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis [ppv]
Gervonta Davis stops Ryan Garcia with body punch in Round 7th.
Ryan Garcia took a beat, then dropped to one knee, the delayed effect of a stinging liver shot from Gervonta “Tank” Davis that floored Garcia for the second time in their super fight on Saturday, and this time, he didn’t beat the count.
The referee reached the count of 10 at 1:44 of Round 7 before 20,842 at the sold-out T-Mobile Arena, an anticlimactic but conclusive finish to boxing’s most-anticipated matchup in years.
Date: Saturday, April 22
Time: 5 p.m.
Main event ringwalks (approx): 8 p.m.
What are the Davis vs Garcia odds?
Currently, DraftKings Sportsbook list Davis as the favorite at -245, with Garcia the underdog at +190, but those odds have been trending closer to even the last couple days, so check again throughout the remainder of the fight week, too.
Undisputed light middleweight champion Jermell Charlo is the latest star to make his prediction.
Speaking on an Instagram live, Charlo revealed that he has placed a huge bet on who will emerge victorious this weekend.
“I got $10,000 on Ryan,” Charlo said.
“Ryan has a shot.” Haney told The DAZN Boxing Show.
“‘Tank’ is much more proven, much more experienced, but Ryan is hungry. He seems like he’s got the right attitude to win.
“But we’ve got to see if that weight plays a role, when ‘Tank’ hits Ryan, how Ryan stands up, but also how ‘Tank’ stands up when Ryan hits him.”
The fight will be contested at a 136lb catchweight, with a strict 10lb rehydration clause, something which fans and experts believe could work against Garcia who has recently fought at 140lbs.
