Gervonta Davis: ‘I Touch That Jaw, You’re Going To Sleep’

Plenty of hype and build has surrounded Saturday night’s Gervonta Davis-Ryan Garcia collision.

Neither fighter did anything but add to that during a final press conference earlier this week.

From the site of the fight, Davis and Garcia exchanged barbs, and now, they will do the same but with their fists.

The two headline the show from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas live on Showtime pay-per-view.

Davis, unbeaten over 28 career fights, last fought in January when he defended the WBA lightweight title with an eighth round finish of Hector Garcia. He has stopped 26 of his 28 foes.

“All he talks about is that one punch. I only need one too. I touch that jaw and I’m telling you, you’re going to sleep. I’ll probably break your jaw,” Davis said. “We’re here. Enough with the talking. I’m ready to get down and dirty. I’m from Baltimore city and you’ll see how we turn it come Saturday. See y’all then.

“He’s gonna feel me for sure. I am what I say I am. I’m that guy. I didn’t get all the way here for no reason. I put the work in and I got those guys out of there. He’s gonna see it come Saturday night for sure.

“He’s getting his ass whooped. It’s gonna be an exciting fight. I’m excited to be here. I don’t know about him, but I’m coming with some stuff for sure.”

Garcia is also unbeaten, sporting a record of 23-0 with 19 finishes including a sixth round stoppage of Javier Fortuna back in July.

“Everything is catching up to you. Everything is coming to a halt for you on Saturday night. You’re gonna learn the hard way,” Garcia said. “I don’t have much to say really, I’m just staying focused and preparing. I know there’s a big task at hand, but I’m gonna come out victorious.

“He’s gonna find out exactly why I’m here. You don’t get to this position without having something special. Anybody can see that. We’ll just have to wait and see when I’m in there. He’ll see it when I’m in there.

“This man has never punished anyone in his life. He’s always losing in these fights. Get that out of your mind. You’re gonna get punished. You got the lowest punch output in boxing.”
