Gervonta Davis has shed some light on the negotiation period for his upcoming mega clash with Ryan Garcia, and admits ‘King Ry’ accepted all the terms that were put to him from Davis’ side.
The two young stars are scheduled to lock horns on April 22nd in Las Vegas, in what is by far and away the stand out fight of the year so far.
And ‘Tank’ told reporters at the post fight press conference for his win over Hector Luis Garcia that his opponent in just under two month’s time was more than accommodating to get the fight made.
“Ryan is a baby clown. He shouldn’t be talking, he should be working.
He agreed to everything. We just went like this [throwing hands out] and he just agreed to everything.”
After one of the most drawn out negotiation periods in recent memory, boxing fans across the world were relieved when Davis vs Garcia was officially announced last week.
Although Garcia has been campaigning at 140lbs in his last couple of outings, he has agreed to come down in weight to 136lbs to allow the contest to take place.
There were growing concerns that the fight may not happen, after reports emerged of a dispute over the promotional rights of a potential rematch between the pair.
However, this was resolved as Showtime agreed to allow Garcia’s promoters Golden Boy to take the lead for a second fight if Garcia scores the upset win over Davis.
Davis’ court case was also feared to be on obstacle, with the Baltimore puncher pleading guilty in relation to hit and run charges last month.
However, his sentencing will not take place until May 5th, allowing time for one of the most hotly anticipated all American fights in the last few years.
