It was a star-making performance for an already flourishing star of the sport of boxing as Gervonta Davis who knocked out Ryan Garcia in an emphatic fashion. The conclusion was somewhat of a buzzkill for many watching at home on pay-per-view, as the 1.2 million viewers in the U.S. alone saw Garcia go down to a body shot in the seventh round. Afterward, many fans wanted answers.
This past weekend Showtime Sports premiered ‘All Access | Epilogue’, in which some of the final moments of the fight was explained to a certain extent, so the educated viewer could reach for their own conclusions. After Garcia stayed down for the ten-count from referee Thomas Taylor, Showtime’s cameras were in the ring to capture the audio of Garcia, and his trainer, Joe Goossen.
This comes on the heels of rumors that decorated amateur Tsendbaatar Erdenebat, might have hurt Garcia to the body after Erdenebat posted a cryptic Instagram post that some interrupted as that. Erdenebat, a super featherweight, who won on Thursday in New York on a club show now has gotten a healthy lift in popularity from this rumor. Garcia alluding to his rib might base some truth or thought on this rumor, as his coach seemingly in the previous quote pointed out a concern around that region of his body and taking that type of shot.
“I didn’t want to continue, because of my rib,” said Ryan Garcia in the ring. “It’s okay.”
On Monday morning, it was reported by Mike Coppinger of ESPN.com, that the duo of Garcia and Goossen will no longer be a pair. No word on who will be Ryan Garcia's new coach or when he will return to the ring.
“Listen, let me tell you something, that type of shot is a hard [one], you'd rather get hit in the chin,” said Joe Goossen. “..and you did and you got up.”
