Gervonta Davis made very interesting statement about Ryan Garcia, who actually wanted to fight him and it would’ve happened earlier this year.
“He a Instagram fighter. We don’t worry about him. [He’s a] YouTuber, yeah. He’s a pretty girl. That’s what he is. He just talk.”
Garcia has not fought since those initial discussions about boxing Davis. The Victorville, California, native withdrew from a July 9 fight against Javier Fortuna to focus on his mental health and then pulled out of a November 27 bout with Joseph Diaz Jr. due to an injury to his right hand that required surgery.
“We all know Luke Campbell is better [than] all of [Tank’s] opposition,” Garcia wrote on Twitter in reference to his own toughest opponent. “Tank can’t beat me. He knows that and Mayweather knows that. I’m too fast and I got too much accuracy. C’mon Mayweather, you can’t protect him forever.”
Davis, Mayweather and Ellerbe didn’t pay Garcia’s trash talk much mind.
“I don’t know what he said, but we tried to make this fight,” Mayweather said. “For those that don’t know, we tried to make this fight before, [with] the kid, Ryan Garcia. We tried to make the fight. He chose – what happened, Leonard? You know. Give the whole breakdown.”
