Ryan Garcia does not expect to fight in the near future against Gervonta “Tank” Davis, because Floyd mayweather wants to protect his ward.
“I’m sure I would beat Davis“, said Ryan during an Instagram Live session. “But he is not going to fight anyone outside of Mayweather Promotions, what did you say Floyd (Mayweather) “.
Although Garcia You think you have to turn the page now and want to end the conversations that linked them at some point. He even went so far as to say that Davis he prefers rivals to mode, since he does not want to take risks.
“Gervonta he will not stop fighting, I don’t think there will be a fight with someone who really wants to see him suffer, “he said. “We must bury the issue. He does not want to fight with anyone difficult, he has never wanted to do it, it just isn’t in his nature. “
The words of Ryan come as a reaction after Floyd mayweather ruled that they would not collaborate with another company such as Top rank or Golden Boy Promotions (current promoter of Garcia) for the future of Gervonta.
“We will keep everything at home, Mayweather Promotions and PBC, we are all a family “, commented Floyd. “We are not going anywhere to strengthen another company. We have many fighters at 140, 135 and 130 and we will continue to fight who we should. “
For its part, Leonard ellerbe, President of Mayweather Promotions, published a message that drew attention: “One of the great achievements in our sport is to become a world champion, but it does not automatically make you a star or attraction, it is a long and difficult process. It has nothing to do with becoming a great fighter, I repeat that I am only talking about becoming a star / attraction ”.
One of the biggest accomplishments in our sport is to become champ but that doesn’t instantly make you a star / or an attraction, it’s a very long and difficult process. Has nothing to do with becoming a great fighter, I repeat I’m SOLEY talking abt becoming a star / attraction.
