Where To Watch: Gervonta Davis Vs. Hector Luis Garcia Tonight
With the knockout of Rolando Romero back in May still fresh in everyone’s mind, undefeated powerhouse Gervonta “Tank” Davis is hoping to add another highlight to his reel on Saturday, this time versus WBA super featherweight champion Hector Luis Garcia.
Live from the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC, the Showtime PPV broadcast will feature the two undefeated competitors throwing down in the 135-pound division, battling over Gervonta’s WBA lightweight title.
Ranked third on the lightweight worldwide ratings list, Davis (27-0, 25 KO) has been racking up win after win since his debut in 2013. During his bouts, he has shown very little weakness and never found himself in real trouble, all while displaying punching power and strategy that is on par with the greatest that the division has ever seen.
Late last month, Davis was arrested and jailed on an alleged misdemeanor domestic violence charge of battery causing bodily harm. While Davis denies the allegations, and his accuser has since gone on to state that she “made an unnecessary call to law enforcement in an intense moment while I was frantic.”, analysts feel that this disruption will hinder his performance in the ring this Saturday. Conversely, Davis is no stranger to troubles with the law, and it has never noticeably affected his all-business attitude when it comes to boxing.
Refereed to by many as Davis’s biggest test to date, Garcia (16-0, 10 KO) competed in the 2016 Summer Olympics for the Dominican Republic before turning pro. More recently, he captured his first world title at 130-pounds by defeating Roger Gutierrez back in August, now he has his eyes set on the WBA 135-pound gold. Garcia was also responsible for derailing the 16-fight win streak of Chris Colbert in February 2022, upsetting Colbert’s chances of moving on to the WBA title fight by defeating him in a dominant unanimous decision.
