Ex-champion in four weight categories, American Mikey Garcia spoke respectfully of compatriot and lightweight Jervonte Davis (24-0-0, 23 KO), who knocked out the eminent Mexican Leo Santa Cruz (37-2-1, 19 KO) at the end of October.
“I was upset because I was rooting for Leo. Respect Davis, he’s a real fighter. He is really strong and talented, but now the boss in the division is Lopez, he has all the belts.
Although he beat Lomachenko, I believe that “Tank” is the most competitive battle for him today. Davis is really quick and confident. I think he has more chances against Lopez than Lomachenko, ”Garcia said.
