Ryan Garcia is pushing hard for a title match with WBA super featherweight champion Gervonta Davis.
This past Saturday night in Dallas, Garcia got decked in the second round, but fully recovered to score a brutal body shot knockout of 2012 Olympic gold medal winner Luke Campbell.
The victory solidified his position as a legitimate player in the weight class.
“If you do not take this next fight from me, you will not be remembered. Your legacy will forever be tainted if you do not accept this fight,” Garcia stated to TMZ Sports. “It’s the most important fight to boxing right now.”
While many believe Garcia, 22-years-old, is not ready for a fighter like Davis, the rising star is very confident in his ability to win.
“I don’t have time for celebrations. I’m on one mission. I’m on a mission to knock out Gervonta Davis in two rounds. This man will go down. Two rounds – that’s a promise,” Garcia said.
“This is the fight. Joshua needs to fight Fury and I need to fight Gervonta. That’s it! We need to get this on. I’m going for it! This is it!”
Davis was last seen in action back in October, when he pulled off a sensational one-punch knockout of the very durable Leo Santa Cruz, which also took place in Texas.
