The most exciting lightweight boxer in the world Gervonta “Tank” Davis will put his WBA regular title on the line against 2016 Olympian Hector Luis Garcia in a battle of undefeated southpaws on Saturday night, live on SHOWTIME Sports Pay-Per-View.
Jaron “Boots” Ennis vs. Karen Chukhadzhian is the co-main event and the winner could be next in line to fight unified champion Errol Spence Jr.
Davis, 28, is undefeated in 27 contests and possesses power in both hands as well as ring savvy to avoid taking damage. This combo makes Davis one of the most skilled and dangerous fighters today.
The product of Baltimore has been trained since he was a youth by Calvin Ford who is like a father figure to the young champion. This tandem has been one of the most successful in boxing since Ford took Davis from scratch and built him into a champion where many other trainers had fighters who were already made and went into title fights.
Tonight Davis will need an impressive win to sell a future showdown with one of boxing’s most popular social media stars Ryan Garcia.
Hector Luis Garcia, 31, stands in the way of Davis and Ryan Garcia, and he is known for a big upset over Chris Colbert. Garcia wants to continue on that momentum and beat Davis to shock the world and upset the April showdown with Ryan Garcia.
