Regular WBA lightweight champion Jervonta Davis admitted that he was surprised by Ryan Garcia’s fall in a fight with Luke Campbell, despite seeing the 22-year-old’s defensive problems.
“Garcia performed well, because it was the first time he was dropped this way and at such a high pace. He came back and acted as if nothing had happened. It was amazing. Everything worked out great, he finished his job.
I think Garcia performed well. I jumped up and was shocked when I saw him fall. But right before that, I tweeted that he was hitting every hit. So I wrote in advance that he would catch something. Garcia was exposed to blows all evening. He definitely can’t do it with me, “said Gervonta Davis.
Recall that Davis also reacted to Garcia’s words that he would knock him out in two rounds.
