Bernard Hopkins Agrees That Ryan Garcia Vs. Gervonta Davis Should Be Next
If Ryan Garcia wins on Saturday, Bernard Hopkins has named his next opponent.
Hopkins has been campaigning for Garcia to fight Gervonta Davis for almost two years now.
“It’s more Ryan’s obligation to show that he’s ready for anyone, including Tank Davis,” Hopkins told Fighthype.
“I think when you look at Ryan’s last fight, what has he learned and not learned from that fight to what’s going to happen Saturday.
“It’s still a question mark there, but on Saturday, I believe that it’s up to him and Ryan to say, ‘I’m going through this door, and this is who I want.’ Personally, I believe he’s going to do that.”
Ahead of the Fortuna fight, some fans argued that Garcia was talking more about Gervonta Davis than his actual scheduled fight.
Garcia previously told FIGHT SPORTS that fans will see why he’s the “best” in the division.
And Hopkins thinks he can show this.
“I think you and everyone else is going to be asking for the Tank Davis fight. I’d rather see him go right to the top. Tank right now is the division,” Hopkins said.
“I’ll say it again if you need me to repeat it. Why mess with the second or third best? Go right to the dance.”
