Ryan Garcia Lays Into Tank Davis/Floyd Mayweather: “Can’t Protect Him Forever”

Did Gervonta Davis’ stock drop, just a little, due to him not being able to score the KO over Isaac Cruz last night? This is the way boxing is, with the critics always swift to pounce if they sense an opportunity to do so.

Tank got the win over “Pitbull,” and he did hurt his hand in doing so (this a partial excuse for Davis not getting the spectacular KO he is always looking for) so maybe there is nothing to criticise. Still, the knives are out, and Floyd Mayweather, who looks after Davis, seemed pretty steamed at the post-fight presser.

Mayweather said his fighters never get the credit they deserve and he also stated how people want to see Tank Davis lose, because “it’s like me losing.” Floyd says he still generates jealousy for having dominated the sport for so long. But Davis is still unbeaten, for now, and he looks to the next fight. One man who has held nothing back in both calling out and criticising Davis, is Ryan Garcia.

Garcia took to social media right after Tank had had his hand raised against Cruz, and he had some stuff to say:

“We all know Luke Campbell is better than all of Tank’s opposition, Tank can’t beat me he knows that and Mayweather knows that. I’m too fast and I got too much accuracy, c’mon Mayweather you can’t protect him forever.”

Garcia hasn’t fought since he got up from a knockdown to stop Campbell, this getting on for a year ago. Since then, the 23 year old has had to take some time out and he has seen scheduled fights with Javier Fortuna and Diaz fall through. Can Garcia beat Tank? Garcia needs to get back in the ring first and prove he is 100 percent ready. But down the road, maybe as soon as next year, a Davis-Garcia fight would for sure be a hot one, a fight we would all tune in for.

Is Mayweather really “protecting” Davis? That seems harsh, while I’m sure you will have your opinion on whether or not Luke Campbell is better than anyone Davis has faced. One things is definite: the lightweight division is buzzing right now. Just who is the current top dog – George Kambsos Jr, Tank Davis, Devin Haney, Vasyl Lomachenko, Ryan Garcia, or someone else?

  1. Davis would have finished him except he hurt his hand lucky for ole boy .he knew trust me

  2. Who the hell Garcia fought, what channel. Ever held a belt? I mean really, who is he…….? Oh the kid I seen sparring with Romero….. Oh he better sit down and shut up.

  3. Of course blacks hate canelo cause he Mexican. Mexicans don’t like tank cause he black. Simple science!

  4. Mayweather can’t take a hit thats why he runs dont you think if he could beat the other fighter he would stand toe to toe but he can’t take a hit and he.knows that so does his traine

    • Boxing isn’t about being hit. C’mon man do you think boxing is about going toe to toe really. “Dance like a Butterfly, Sting like a Bee”. The object is to hit and take as little damage as possible…

    • Boxing is the science of hitting and not being hit(with just hands and angles) , its a skill very few can, most try and get hit, if you want toe to toe go watch street fights or mma.

    • You aren’t supposed to take hits. Hit and not get hit, that’s the point. Do you not understand boxing at all ?

    • You not supposed to get hit. The definition of boxing is…. To hit your opponent while not being hit. What kind of idiot would allow someone to hit them if they can avoid it. As long as your striking your opponent you are doing your job as a boxer. People really hate Floyd Mayweather. I appreciate what he brought to the sport and I appreciate the entertainment with arrogance, the money throwing, and the facts he backs up. Can’t take a hit….ha ha…. Stand there and get brain damage is not part of the game.

    • You know what the point in boxing is ……..TO HIT AND NOT GET HIT RIGHT ? When you get hit the other guys scores pts🤔 so your comment is really , really stupid 😂

    • If you are good enough not to get hit enough to sustain irreversible brain damage why in the heck would he just stand toe to toe with someone if he doesn’t have to?
      He didn’t run from Canello. He just outboxed him. Haters are just that.

    • Toe to toe is stupid boxing. Get your head on straight. Mayweather won every fight because he’s a smart fighter. Manny stood toe to toe with Marquez and got obliterated. That’s what toe to toe got him. And yes , Mayweather can take a punch , Moseley had him hurt , Castillo had him hurt , amongst other fighters. The objective is to hit and not get hit

    • I used to box the objective is to hit not get hit if you stand there and go toe to toe that’s not boxing that’s fighting mma bkf and backyard fights are more your thing

    • Once again Boxing is a point system and you’ll still can’t comprehend that,he left undefeated so,give credit where credit is due!!!!!

  5. I’ll fight everyone. I’ll fight garcia and Davis at the same time. I’ll fight their moms. 🤣🤣🤣

    • Ryan should sit back and be quiet until he man up and get in the ring. At this point you’re nobody until you fight somebody…anybody. Until then stick to social media.

    • Florida’s one of the smarter more Savvy businessman in boxing and backs it up can’t hate on him for that

  6. Social Media Champ Ryan Garcia stay in that lane never poke a bear, honestly the people surrounding this young man have him really believing hes that good….hes not.
    Tank Knocks him out
    Loma gets him dizzy and KO’s him.
    Teofimo eats him alive.
    Kamboses got him really pissed and took advantage of him all night right hands. Teofimo moves up hes starving himself fighting these guys and get your head right these cats cant carry you except the 2 above mentioned. Teofimo vs. tank at 140 is the prize fight.
    Devon Haney vs. Ryan Garcia thats this kids chance at super bowl. Haney will be lucky of he gets by Kambo in Australia .
    Haneys a right hand away from sleep night. As is every fighter but Haneys last 2 fights show it right hand to the chin night night.
    So Ryan you better let these guys fight eachother beat themselves up and age a little bit then go see them when your ready. Gotta fight for you Jake Paul ???

  7. why not make the fight happened?
    Davis and Garcia, cmon we haven’t seen a good fight since the Pacman retired. not only it’s gonna generate a lot of cash, it’ll be a wonderful New Year for the boxing fans.

    • Garcia need to get in the ring and stop bumping his Gums. He your mental health together then have a fight or 2.

  8. I really really appreciate what Floyd’s doing in boxing. He’s trying to keep it going with good fights PLUS HOW HE’S SPEAKING UP ON THE UNFAIR IGNORING OF THE OTHER GREAT FIGHTER SPENCE,CRAWFORD, TANK THEY ARE SO BUSY PROMOTING THE TALENTED BUT CAUGHT USING STEROIDS CANELO .ALSO CANELOS PEOPLE NEVER GIVE THE BLACK FIGHTERS A FIGHT A CHANCE TO MAKE A LOT OF MONEY. IM SICK OF IT TERRIBLE TERRIBLE AND BEING IGNORED EXCEPT BY FLOYD.I DO THINK THURMAN WILL KO SPENCE ARE CRAWFORD I TRULY BELIEVE IT HE’S TO ELUSIVE FOR SPENCE AND TO STRONG FOR CRAWFORD. HAPPY HOLIDAYS

    • I almost completely disagree
      Thurman LMFAO 🤣 I can’t take anything away from his skills
      But he ain’t beating Crawford or Spence you sir don’t know what your talking about and tank did struggle against this pitbull Cruz and got the W , oh and money may is filling and keeping those ones up that’s all there is too it bro
      RT 💯

    • Take some time out of your life and watch some Spence fights. I guarantee you will change your mind. Spence fought four different styles in his last four fights just to let people know that he can fight in those styles. Spence will beat the brakes off of him

    • What about chavez they call him one of the greatest mexican fighters but never an all time great fighter why can he be called one of the greatest fighters of all time like mayweather oh yeah hes mexican im glad canelo is changing that

  9. He had two great fights he could have fought,but had mental issues. It’s about the money. Ryan stfu

  10. The hand injury was caused by the level of the fighter Gervonta faced. Gervonta had to try to punch harder and randomly to get Cruz’s attention and get breathing room. I don’t think it was just a common injury he would suffer with another fighter. Cruz caused d that injury any way you see it. I really thought Tank was going to run over Cruz quite easily but he was very careful against him.

    • Wrong… a hand injury can come from any level of fighter
      Or at any time. You’re reaching if you think it happened because Cruz made Tank punch harder.

  11. Ryan Garcia should be careful what he asks for. Davis may just give it to him and make him realize that he bit off way more than he could chew. A Davis-Garcia fight would probably generate a lot of money though.

  12. Davis is a great fighter, I think he is better than Floyd. Only Davis can defeat Davis.

  13. F*** Ryan Garcia you need to worry about yourself stay out of my dog business he is not on my dog level f*** you Ryan Garcia

  14. Like Mayweather said, everyone wants tank to lose. Bottom line, he won. Because he didn’t knock him out he lost? Tank can box! People seem to forget that, he can box emphasis on box. So stop the hate because he has money because if it was any of us was in his position we would be the same way.

  15. Boxing is hit and don’t get hit as long as you get the W, Tank can’t go in there just swinging, Brains out points power any day
