Via Dan Ambrose: Ryan Garcia surprises by saying he’s not worried about knockout artist Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis’ punch power ahead of their game next month on April 22 on Showtime PPV at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
According to 24-year-old Ryan, Tank’s hits can’t hurt him as long as he sees punches coming. Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero is an example of a boxer who was knocked down by a shot from Tank that he didn’t see in their fight last year.
Before that, Rolly handled Tank’s powers without any problems and is getting surprisingly better.
Hector Garcia was also handling Tank’s power during their fight last January until he was caught with a shot he didn’t anticipate.
“If I saw his punches, they wouldn’t hurt. You are knocked down by a shot you can’t see; that’s what people don’t understand,” Ryan Garcia told Sports show time location.
Ryan Garcia continued: “I knew Gervonta intended, from what I heard, to at some point push me down and put pressure on me.
The undefeated Tank Davis (28-0.26 KOs) has a KO rate of 92.86% and has KOs 19 of his last 20 opponents since 2015.
It’s true that Tank’s opponents have been mostly C-rank for the past eight years, but it’s impressive how many fighters he’s taken down in that span of time.
If Ryan (23-0.19 KOs) can handle Tank’s power without being injured or knocked out, the Baltimore native could be in serious trouble because it means his chin will have to be dealt with. Kingry’s power theory is famous, and it’s not easy.
As we have seen many times, Ryan has legitimate one-punch power and can end a fight at any time with a single shot.
Tank is a brilliant boxer, but he’s mortal and if he had his left chin hooked by Ryan, he’d go to sleep like 19 of Kingry’s 23 opponents during his seven-year pro career. .
“So obviously I had to be prepared for that, and obviously that was what I thought he was going to do because he thought my small body and maybe I wasn’t strong enough to stop him. stop him, but he has another thing Ryan said. “I don’t look as strong as him but believe me, I am strong.“
