The big boxing event from Washington D.C. features Baltimore’s own Gervonta “Tank” Davis taking on Hector Luis Garcia in a WBA lightweight world title fight, and the co-main event has Philly fighter Jaron “Boots” Ennis fighting Karen Chukhadzhian in a welterweight IBF interim title bout on January 7th.
Gervonta “Tank” Davis is a three weight division world champion, winning belts from super featherweight, lightweight, and junior welterweight. He is currently competing at 135-pounds and will defend his WBA regular title tonight.
Davis is one of boxing’s biggest attractions. While he was under Mayweather Promotions he was pushed heavily by Floyd Mayweather as the future of boxing, now Tank is on his own and no longer part of The Money Team and will start promoting himself.
Tonight will be his first bout since leaving Mayweather promotions and he is taking on undefeated southpaw Hector Luis Garcia in a risky bout that could throw a wrench into his super fight in April against Ryan Garcia should he lose in an upset.
Hector Luis Garcia has nothing to lose but everything to gain and he believes all pressure is on Davis and this will be a great opportunity to make a name for himself by beating Davis on Showtime.
The co-main event features one of the future stars of boxing Jaron “Boots” Ennis who is known for his devastating knockout power taking on Karen Chukhadzhian in a IBF interim welterweight title fight, with the possible next bout being against undefeated unified IBF, WBA, and WBC champion Errol Spence Jr.
