According to ESPN’s Mike Coppinger, Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia have both signed contracts to make their highly anticipated boxing match a reality, scheduled to take place at a 136 lb catchweight in Vegas on April 15th, 2023.
Reports indicate that the agreement has been given to DAZN for inspection. It is anticipated that this process will be concluded by the end of the week, consequently guaranteeing that the bout will take place.
The fight has had its own set of problems with the two sides disagreeing over the terms of a potential rematch.
Both Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia have now signed contracts for an April 15 fight in Las Vegas, sources tell @MikeCoppinger.

Both Showtime and DAZN were at odds over which network should hold the rematch, but if an agreement is in place, that hurdle must have been navigated.
Additionally, Davis recently entered a guilty plea for a hit-and-run incident. And since the sentencing hearing would happen after April, May 5th 2023, there is no reason for this to hamper it.
And by the looks of it, fans are reveling at the prospect of seeing the two fight it out.
