The fight between unbeaten Ryan Garcia and Gervonta “Tank” Davis this weekend is both refreshing and intriguing in an era where the finest boxers try their hardest to avoid one another.
Local discussion has centered on the different fighting techniques and personalities, as well as the heavy artillery carried by both fighters, as SuperSport is live-streaming the action. There have long been comparisons between the two, with Davis, a ferocious, heavy-punching product of Baltimore’s rough streets, pitted against Garcia, a media creation and boxing sensation.
The fight has received a lot of attention since it features two boxers at the top of their game and because there is disagreement among the betting public on who will win. This battle is exciting due to a number of factors, not the least of which is the fact that modern boxing has essentially abandoned the idea of the best fighting the best. Fans are anticipated to emerge as the true winners when they face off early on Sunday morning, so both deserve credit for getting the deal done.
Garcia is a tall, smooth fighter with quick hands and a devastating left hook. Davis, a southpaw who goes by the moniker “Tank” and is a comer who can halt opponents with either hand, is a tank by nature. Despite being a big puncher, his boxing prowess is frequently underappreciated. He is a technical marvel who has the ability to close the ring, vary his punches, and control the tempo of a fight. His entire toolkit is usually on display until he decides to drop the bomb.
Despite having a stellar record (28 victories, 26 by KO), Garcia is his most significant step-up to date. Garcia is a world-class fighter who has defeated many opponents. He is a pound-for-pound talent who is eager to defeat Davis on the big stage.
Yamaguchi Falcao’s undercard bout against WBA super-middleweight champion David Morrell Jr. offers a feast for fight fans despite the early start. Gabriel Rosado and Bektemir Melikuziev, two explosive super-middleweight boxers, will square off in a thrilling rematch following Rosado’s unexpected knockout victory almost two years ago.
