Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia is officially a done deal.

After months of negotiating, Davis announced the fight will take place in Las Vegas on April 22nd and will air on Showtime PPV.

Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza confirmed the news.

Update: Here’s ESPN’s report.

. A dispute over the rematch clause threatened to derail the fight, but that issue was resolved earlier this month after PBC agreed that Golden Boy would serve as the lead promoter for the rematch if Garcia wins.

Only Davis can exercise the rematch clause in the event he loses, per sources. Typically, boxers have 30 days to activate their right to an immediate return bout. Davis (28-0, 26 KOs) will earn the lion’s share of revenue for the first fight, per sources, and is the betting favorite to win the bout. The Baltimore native defeated Hector Luis Garcia last month via ninth-round TKO to keep the Ryan Garcia matchup intact.


The official venue is still unknown, but the MGM Grand Garden Arena and T-Mobile Arena will likely be the top venues vying for the Garcia-Davis fight.

Davis and Garcia ill meet at a contracted catch weight of 136 pounds in their 12-round, non-title fight.
