The CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya, and promoter of Ryan Garcia, is not a fan of Garcia, opting to go straight into a Gervonta “Tank” Davis.

Garcia was rumored to face Mercito Gesta on January 21st, but the fight has fallen apart as Garcia wants to go straight into a “Tank” Davis.
“Look, Tank Davis is gonna have a tune-up fight,” stated De La Hoya.
