Luke Campbell: Ryan Garcia Has The Tools To Beat Gervonta Davis
Luke Campbell thinks Ryan Garcia can defeat Gervonta Davis.
Garcia has made it clear that he wants a piece of “Tank.” The rising star is fresh off an interim WBC Lightweight Title win over Campbell. Garcia won the bout with a body shot for the knockout. It’s the first time Campbell has been beaten via KO.
During an interview with iFL TV, Campbell said he feels that while “Tank” is a tough out for anyone, Garcia can pull off the win (via BoxingScene.com).
“(With) Gervonta, you’re always going to have a tough fight with Gervonta. I definitely believe he’s got the tools to beat him. “The problem with him fighting Haney is that Haney don’t really sell the place out with his style and stuff like that. I believe he (Garcia) beats Haney no problem. Gervonta is a hard fight, he’s a hard fight for anybody, but he’s got the tools and the abilities to win.”
Davis is undefeated with a record of 24-0. He has only gone the distance once in his pro boxing career. He’s coming off a highlight-reel knockout victory over Leo Santa Cruz, which earned him a second reign with the WBA (Super) Super-Featherweight Title. In addition to holding super-featherweight gold, Davis is also the WBA (Regular) Lightweight Champion.
Garcia has also gone unbeaten in his career. His record stands at 21-0 with 18 of those victories coming by way of knockout. His last five victories have come by way of knockout or TKO.
