Gervonta Davis-Ryan Garcia is on!

Many boxing fans were let down after Errol Spence-Terence Crawford was not made, but they got some good news on Thursday. 

It was announced on social media by both Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia that they would fight sometime in 2023. 

According to ESPN’s Mike Coppinger, the bout will be contested at a 136-pound catchweight and is slated to take place in April and will be produced and distributed by Showtime. In addition, DAZN, which streams Garcia’s fights, will offer the PPV through its services.

Garcia is excited to get this fight done.

I’m so pumped this fight is finally in place — I want it more than anything right now,” Garcia said via Twitter. “I’ve put in the work, I’m at the prime of my career, and I know I’m going to be the biggest boxer in the world. That legacy starts today.”

Davis added via Twitter:

“I’ll be back in the ring Jan 7 stay tuned for more details! After that it’s me and Ryan signed sealed delivered…done deal!”

Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza believes this is one of the biggest fights that can be made in boxing. 

“Tank Davis vs. Ryan Garcia is one of the biggest and most exciting fights that can be made in boxing. We have two supremely talented boxers, both in their prime, who have amassed huge fanbases, meeting in a career-defining fight,” Espinoza said via a statement. “This is the epitome of a crossover boxing event. All credit to Tank and Ryan for staying the course and giving the fans the fight they want.

“SHOWTIME has delivered the three biggest pay-per-view events in television history, and we are thrilled to add this marquee event to our list of culture-moving matchups.”

Garcia’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya, said this via Twitter:

“The fans have been crystal clear that the fight they want is Ryan versus Tank,” De La Hoya said. “Golden Boy Promotions and I are proud to be leading the drive to get this fight signed and are excited to get a deal finalized ASAP. It’s high time that those outside the ring stop getting in the way of those who want nothing more than to get into the ring and fight. Our motto has always been that the fans come first, and this is just another example of how we’re leading by example.”

Again, according to Davis, he will have a tune-up fight on January 7, so if all goes well, hopefully, the fight will still happen.
