“Tank” Davis keeps his perfect record intact – and adds another knockout to his legendary ledger.

Someone’s 0 had to go – and Gervonta Davis wasn’t going to let Ryan Garcia take his. After predicting that he’d finish Garcia in the 7th round, he did exactly that – with a picture-perfect hook to the liver.

Make no mistake – it was a competitive fight. Ryan Garcia had his moments, but the power of “Tank” proved the difference. Davis was the first to score a knockdown – capturing the attention of boxing GOAT Floyd Mayweather, who watched the fight ringside.

Ryan Garcia suffered his first loss in boxing – but was all class during his ringside interview after the bout.

“Tank is a great fighter,” Garcia stated. “We talked a lot of [expletive] coming up in here, but he knows what it is. It’s all love at the end of the day. I was honored to be in the ring with a great fighter and I respect him a lot.”

When asked about the fight ending punch, Garcia simply responded, “he caught me with a good shot. I don’t want to make no excuses … I just couldn’t recover.”

Garcia moves to 23-1 with 19 KOs in his career – and at only 24 years old, he is still one of the most talented and promising boxers in the lightweight division. Expect a big bounce-back from the young Golden Boy product.

As for “Tank,” the self-proclaimed “face of boxing” feels like his work is just getting started.

“The job’s never done until I retire,” Davis stated in his post-fight interview. “I’m going to keep my head down, stay humble, and continue to work.”

Even though Davis chooses to remain humble, he does have bragging rights – correctly picking the round in which he’d stop Ryan Garcia. When asked about his previous predictions of a 7th round finish, “Tank” stated “it was just me trying to get into [Garcia’s] head.”

Davis improves his impressive record to 29-0 with an incredible 27 KOs.
