Undefeated five-time world champion and boxing superstar Gervonta “Tank” Davis(27-0, 25 KOs) held a media workout in Miami on Wednesday as he prepares to defend his WBA Lightweight Title against undefeated world champion Héctor Luis García(16-0. 10 KOs) headlining a SHOWTIME PPV (9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT) on Saturday, January 7 in a Premier Boxing Champions event from Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.
Davis has established himself as one of boxing’s hottest attractions and will need to dispatch the WBA Super Featherweight Champion Héctor Luis García in order to pave the way for the recently announced blockbuster clash against unbeaten star Ryan Garcia in the Spring of 2023.
Before his fight with Davis, Ryan Garcia was expected to take a tune-up fight, but Garcia nixed it, and now he’s going straight into the battle with Davis.
According to Tank, Garcia is just being lazy.
“I think Ryan Garcia’s being lazy not taking a fight before our fight,” Davis said. “I don’t know. When he was coming up, he was in the gym and everything, and now he’s got some money and a little bit of fame, and he’s partying and stuff like that. It happens to the majority of us, but it’s up to him to tighten up before it’s too late.”
