Ryan Garcia To Gervonta Davis: ‘It’s Nap Time For Gervonta’

Ryan Garcia believes he is ready to dethrone Gervonta Davis.

“King” will get his opportunity against “Tank” this coming Saturday when the two collide from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The bout airs live on Showtime PPV.

Garcia has headlined fights across Los Angeles, Dallas and San Antonio, with fans packing the rafters to watch his meteoric rise. He now steps into the biggest fight of his career and a rare matchup of unbeaten superstars in the prime of their careers.

“This fight means a lot to me. It means everything,” Garcia said. “It’s a moment that I’ve been envisioning for so long now. It’s the only thing I’ve wanted for so long, to defeat Gervonta Davis and to destroy him. To end everything that he’s ever worked for, because I know he’s trying to do that for me. I’m going to take him out. He’s done. It’s nap time for Gervonta.

“I’m just going to be focused in the ring, no matter if it’s the first round, second round, third round. Any of the rounds, he can go to sleep. He’s going to have to be careful. That’s what I have to tell him. Be careful. I don’t think he is, and he’s going to walk into one. Or I’m just going to go get him. Either way, I’m going to beat him.”

Garcia is a perfect 23-0 with 19 knockouts, including a victory last July over Javier Fortuna. He has held a number of titles during his career, with the most recent being the interim WBC lightweight belt.
