Gervonta Davis Questions Legitimacy Of Ryan Garcia’s Mental Health Struggles-‘You Never Heard No Back-In-The-Day Fighter Talk About Mental Health’

Davis remarked recently during an open workout that he felt Garcia utilised his mental health hiatus as a way to dodge certain obligations.

Garcia declared before his upcoming July 2021 match against Javier Fortuna that he was abandoning it to concentrate on his psychological wellbeing.

Garcia, aged 24, has been vocal about dealing with mental health issues, even in the tough and competitive world of boxing. Davis, however, does not agree. In his comments, he said: “You never heard no back-in-the-day fighter talk about mental health.

“I think boxing people is the most, probably, the most – we need mental health to actually come in the ring and fight and things like that.

“I think we probably the most, the toughest out of the whole, like combat sports. You know what I mean…I feel as though that people just was saying that to get out of stuff.”

Nevertheless, the undefeated Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs) blew Fortuna (37-4-1, 26 KOs, 2 NC) away. He sent Fortuna to the canvas three times before knocking him out in the sixth round in Los Angeles.

Garcia’s next match-up is likely to be with Davis , who must win against another left-handed fighter, Hector Luis Garcia, on the 7th of January.

With that being said, Garcia expressed his displeasure with Davis’ opinion regarding fighters and mental wellbeing : “We all have mental health.

“First of all, you can’t even conjure up a clear sentence. I’ve boxed my whole life, fought over 200 times. I’d break a long time ago if it was I was fearful to fight. You simply have never done your research and simply have low IQ.”

With so much bad blood between them, a Davis and Garcia match-up will surely bring about many fireworks.
