Both Davis and Garcia are currently undefeated, and both are highly skilled and have massive fanbases. Davis is currently the WBA lightweight champ and holds a record of 28-0. Only TWO of those 28 fights have gone to decision, which means, yes, Tank has knocked out 26 of his 28 opponents.

Garcia, who won the WBC interim lightweight title in 2021, holds a record of 23-0 and has knocked out 19 of those opponents. 

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Gervonta Davis is a moderate favorite coming into the bout, currently sitting with -240 odds. Garcia, who is a +200 underdog, has never been an underdog in a fight that has been given odds.

So, even though Davis is the favorite, both men could win this fight–and here’s how each of them can get it done.

How Garcia Can Win

If you haven’t already, I want you to hop on over to youtube and take a gander at how fast Ryan Garcia is. He has BLISTERING speed that really leaves your jaw on the floor. 

Tank Davis is fast, but Garcia is faster–it would be like Usain Bolt racing the Flash.

While Garcia doesn’t have Tank’s level of power, his power should not be overlooked. He has such a solid left hand that could hit you in the blink of an eye, and he has an incredibly accurate jab that he often uses to set up his left hook. 

Garcia also never shies away from working his opponent's body, which could spell a long night for Tank. If Garcia, who has a three-inch reach advantage, can keep his distance and establish his jab early, then he could definitely get his hand raised come the end of the evening. 

But, there’s one thing in his way, and that one thing is HUGE–it’s the size of a tank, to be precise.

How Tank Davis Can Win

POWER. Pure power.

Davis has some of the best pound-for-pound power in the entire sport, proven by his track record. 

He’s able to knock out his opponents with either hand, with any kind of punch, at any time of the fight. He’s a massive power threat, and if he can get in close on Garcia and close the distance, then Ryan could be in some real trouble

Garcia is also prone to being a bit too rigid in the ring, and it all culminated in a knockdown in his 2021 bout against Luke Campbell. 

Garcia tends to throw punches with his chin straight up in the air, fully exposed, and against a fighter as powerful as Davis, that could be a true nightmare.

Davis vs Garcia Prediction

Before I give out my winner, let me make a prediction for the fans–I think we’re going to witness one of the most entertaining boxing fights of the century. Both of these men are in their primes, and it’s rare, especially in today’s age, that we get a true super-fight like this.

Early on, I think it will be the Ryan Garcia show. I think he’s going to come out faster than fast, landing some great combos and some huge body blows that could leave Tank fans biting their nails.

However, as the fight goes on, I expect Tank to take control. In the middle rounds I can see Tank landing some heavy blows, possibly even catching the speedy Garcia with a counter after a hook. 

It’ll begin to look shaky for Garcia, but he’s never been a man to give up. Late in the fight, maybe the 10th round, I see Garcia fighting back, using his speed when Tank is tired, and landing a huge blow that leaves Davis motionless on the mat.

That’s right.

Ryan Garcia by KO/TKO/DQ (+300).
