Ryan Garcia Predicts Haney Would Beat Tank Davis

Ryan Garcia has backed Devin Haney to beat Gervonta Davis if the pair were to meet in the ring. Garcia’s comments come in response to Davis’s now-deleted comments after Garcia defeated Haney in New York last weekend. 

Garcia (25-1, 20 KOs) silenced his critics and won by majority decision at the Barclays Center, dropping the WBC champion three times over 12 rounds. 

Davis had defeated Garcia with a bodyshot last April in Las Vegas. 

“It’s best Ryan retire now,” Davis posted on social media platform X. “He [Garcia] is going to get hurt bad.”

Garcia responded to Davis on X, calling for a rematch at a catchweight of 144lbs.

Talking on the PBD podcast, Garica was asked for an opinion on a possible fight between Davis and Haney, and Garcia predicted his fellow Californian to defeat the WBA lightweight champion. 

“Haney beats Tank [David]. Boxing is a wild sport,” Garcia told the PBD podcast. “Haney beats him out of just pure volume. [He] Just knows how to use his reach good.

“Tank would try to hurt him [Haney], but I don’t think Tank would get to Haney. Definitely, Haney would beat Tank. I know everybody will say, ‘Oh, Ryan’s crazy again’, but if it happens, I have Haney.”
