Oscar De La Hoya On Gervonta Davis-Ryan Garcia: I Have No Contract
Davis and Garcia had previously agreed to fight at some point this year.
Earlier this Sunday morning, Oscar De La Hoya publicly issued an ultimatum.
Ryan Garcia’s promoter claimed through Twitter that he still needs to receive Garcia’s contract for their pay-per-view match against Gervonta Davis.
According to De La Hoya, he will start looking for a different opponent for Garcia’s next bout if they still need to receive a contract from Davis’ managers by Monday. De La Hoya wrote, “I have no contract. “Monday is the deadline for me, or I’m going on.”
At the time of this posting, there has not been an update.
The statements made on Twitter by the founder of Golden Boy Promotions were marked with the hashtag “#DavisGarcia.”
One of the most lucrative and marketable boxing matchups is Davis vs. Garcia. On November 17, Baltimore’s Davis and Victorville, California’s Garcia announced via social media that they had reached a deal to square off in Las Vegas at some point in 2023.
If Davis didn’t defeat Hector Luis Garcia in their 12-round, 135-pound title match on January 7 at Washington, D.C.’s Capital One Arena, they couldn’t proceed with their high-profile contest. Garcia, a Dominican southpaw, was previously unbeaten until Davis stopped him at the beginning of the ninth round.
