Garcia Calls Out Tank Davis For A Rematch - 'Come See Me At 144'

Ryan Garcia called out Gervonta Davis for a rematch following his spectacular victory over Devin Haney

Garcia secured the biggest win of his career when he won a majority decision in a performance that resulted in Haney being dropped three times. Garcia defied the odds to secure the win after there were worries over his mental health coming into the fight. He admitted to drinking alcohol and smoking weed, showing that he did not have the best preparation.

His social media activity also suggested he was not focused on the fight. While Garcia suggested that some of those antics were part of his trolling to get into Haney’s head, he had to back things up in the ring, which he managed to do. Now, he has set his sights on a future rematch with Davis. They fought last year when Garcia was stopped in the seventh round.

However, there is a major asterisk on that win because of the weight class. Garcia agreed to take the fight at 136 pounds, which included a 10-pound rehydration clause. The boxer admitted that he was severely hampered and weakened, given that he was weighed drained. Garcia is looking to secure the rematch on his terms at a catchweight weight of 144-45 pounds. However, since Davis is a 135-pound fighter, that will unlikely happen anytime soon.

Garcia On Davis

“Gervonta wasn’t a hard fight, I was just weak. That’s not a hard fight for me, I will beat Gervonta worse than I beat Haney. He will never fight me at 145 lbs so it doesn’t really matter,” Garcia said 

Davis is preparing to face Garcia’s stablemate, Frank Martin, on June 15. Davis will defend his WBA Lightweight Title in his first fight since he defeated Garcia last year. Tank will headline PBCs third PPV on Amazon Prime Video, exposing him to an even bigger audience following Showtime’s exit.

A victory will increase the calls on Davis to either unify at lightweight against Shakur Stevenson or to move up to have a mega rematch with Garcia. The first fight with Garcia did over 1.2 million PPV buys. Facing Garcia makes sense since Davis has been accused of not taking the toughest fights but rather focusing on trying to earn higher purses. 

Ryan has no title, but his social media following has grown even further after the Haney win, making him a more attractive proposition. However, the major hindrance in the fight will be who the A-side is. Davis stopped Garcia, showing that he was the better fighter. However, Ryan has shown he has a big following since he can cross over into the casual fan base. He also brings in fans from the entertainment industry, given his connections to streamers and actors and his all-around social media influence.
