Ryan Garcia And Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis Agree To Fight In ‘Early’ 2023

After years of teasing a fight against each other, it appears that Ryan Garcia vs Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis is actually going down in 2023.

In a press release sent out to the media, it was revealed that Garcia and Davis had agreed in principle to fight at a 136-pound catchweight in Las Vegas in 2023.

The biggest rivalry of the modern boxing era will finally settle its score in early 2023 when Southern California superstar “King” Ryan Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs) takes on Baltimore’s Gervonta “Tank” Davis (27-0, 25 KOs). Las Vegas, Nevada, the historic home of boxing’s greatest grudge matches, will play host to one of the most anticipated fights to date, as the undefeated fighters put their perfect records on the line in a 12-round, 136-pound catchweight bout.

Like all great boxing rivalries, including Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier, Marvin Hagler vs. Thomas Hearns, Arturo Gatti vs. Rocky Graziano, to the most recent enmity between Manny Pacuiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. – King Ryan and Tank have circled each other for years, each calling the other out in a war of words as both built up undefeated resumes and scored knockout after knockout.

DAZN CEO Joe Markowski confirmed that DAZN and Showtime had put their differences aside to make the fight happen.

President of Showtime Sports Stephen Espinoza also confirmed the deal.

Garcia spoke about the deal on Twitter.

Update: Davis says he’s fighting another fighter on January 7th and then he’ll fight Garcia afterwards.
