Ryan Garcia claims "mole" in training camp leaked critical information to Gervonta Davis

Gervonta Davis v Ryan Garcia - Fight Night
Ryan Garcia vs. Gervonta Davis

On Saturday night, Gervonta Davis delivered a defining performance in the most anticipated bout of the year, knocking out Ryan Garcia with a devastating shot to the breadbasket in the seventh round.

The 28-year-old three-division champion knocked down Garcia in the second round and then finished him off with a precise hook to the ribs in the seventh round, all in front of a sold-out crowd at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Tempers periodically erupted during the lead-up to the bout, which added to the drama of the blockbuster clash. Ryan Garcia has claimed that he felt "weak" against Gervonta Davis during the bout, possibly alluding to the impact of the rehydration clause in their bout.

Recently, 'King Ryan' took to social media to allege that a mole in his training camp may have divulged vital information to Gervonta Davis. Tsendbaatar Erdenebat, a former Olympian and undefeated professional boxer, has been identified as the sparring partner who injured Garcia. Information about the injury was allegedly leaked to the Davis camp. Erdenebat also tweeted a video in which he claims to have injured Garcia during training.

Ryan Garcia stated that he is relieved that the information has been brought to the public's attention:

"Actually sad I had a mole in my training camp. Like wtf.... That's crazy. Thank God it's brought to light now."

According to Garcia, this new information is in no way an explanation for their recent loss to Davis:

"Also didn't mean that to come off as an excuse or anything. I lost period. I'll come back but I'm just shocked that part of my team crossed me.... someone close to me. Unbelievable! But it's a testimony that you must be aware of everyone."
