Garcia and Davis put their undefeated records on the line this evening at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Ryan Garcia (23-1 Boxing) was returning to action for the first time since July of last year, where he had scored a sixth-round knockout victory over Javier Fortuna. Nineteen of ‘King Ryan’s’ twenty-three career victories had come by way of knockout / TKO.

Meanwhile, Gervonta Davis (29-0 Boxing), the reigning WBA lightweight champion, was looking to earn his twenty-seventh career knockout this evening in Sin City. ‘Tank’ had most recently competed back in January, where he earned a stoppage victory over Hector Garcia.

Tonight’s ‘Davis vs. Garcia’ boxing match proved to be a coming out party for ‘Tank’. Gervonta was able to drop Ryan with a counter left in round number two and then finished the fight in round seven with a nasty body shot (see that here).
