Much had been said about the weight coming into the fight, as Garcia agreed to a 136-lb catchweight, which included a 10-lb-rehydration clause.
Davis and Garcia arrived in front of a packed crowd. The duo were seen conversing until Davis pushed Garcia, who retaliated, as Bernard Hopkins got involved.
However, the situation was resolved peacefully as both fighters made weight.
“I think him and Bernard started getting into and it got crazy, but I’m focused. I’m ready to eat now. I’m focused. I’m ready to destroy him, that’s it,” Garcia
“He’s talking about he about that life, man, nobody’s worried about his old a—, he needs to sit back and let the younguns do it. Punishment, knockout. It’s going to be crazy.
“Don’t blink your eyes, don’t get no popcorn, don’t get no drinks, none of that. Make sure you’re focused on the fight because it’s gonna be an incredible fight,” Davis
