Gervonta Davis v Ryan Garcia - Fight Night

Gervonta Davis defeated Ryan Garcia via a seventh-round TKO.

The two had a long-running rivalry and were at odds for years before entering the squared circle on Saturday, April 22. Going into the bout, there was a lot of back and forth between the two, with both fighters making their intentions clear of wanting to knock each other out.

Gervonta Davis started the fight off slowly and was seemingly getting used to the pace on display by Ryan Garcia in the first round. In the second round of the fight, 'KingRy' started finding success with his power punches. However, Garcia seemingly got too excited and was caught with a vicious strike from Davis that knocked him down.

It is worth noting that Garcia has been knocked down only once before this in his pro-boxing career and that was against Luke Campbell. Much like his fight against Campbell, 'KingRy' was quickly able to recover and stood back up on his feet.

Gervonta Davis then went on to dominate the next few rounds as Ryan Garcia seemed to have trouble establishing any authority. It wasn't until the sixth round of the fight that Garcia started to load up again and land his power punches. The same continued on to the seventh round and much like in the second round of the fight, 'KingRy' was caught while trying to load up yet again.
