Amir Khan gives Ryan Garcia important advice on how to beat Gervonta Davis.

Ryan Garcia can defeat Gervonta Davis in a highly anticipated super fight, but he must keep him at bay and avoid a brawl.

That's the opinion of Amir Khan, a former world champion who knows what it takes to compete on the big stage.

Garcia, the former WBC interim lightweight champion, has not fought since a July victory over Javier Fortuna.

He is presently scheduled to fight Davis in a headline pay-per-view event on April 15, after recently confirming his split from his previous manager Floyd Mayweather.

Davis, on the other hand, will face WBA super-featherweight champion Hector Garcia first, on Saturday at the Capital One Arena.

Meanwhile, Garcia is focusing on ensuring that he is properly prepared for his long-awaited clash with 'Tank,' after opting out of fighting Mercito Gesita on January 28.

And Khan, who retired after losing to Kell Brook last February, has revealed how Garcia may beat Davis in their big match.

Ryan Garcia has to keep it long,” Khan told Fight Hub TV.

“Counter him every time. Throw them hard shots in. Every shot that Ryan throws has to be hard and accurate.

“He can’t let Tank smother him, or get too close, because that’s when he’s in trouble. Ryan has to have strong legs, have good feet, keep it long, keep it moving left to right. Don’t let Tank settle, because once he settles, he’s going to let those big bombs off.

“If he draws him in, Ryan’s got a good jab, he could double that jab up. If Tank throws that right hand or even a left hook, if he catches his left hook with that, what a shot that would be.

“He’s a big guy, he’s taller. See when you’re fighting someone that’s smaller than you, he’s got that advantage over him, he can put that pressure on him. Size wise he looks a lot bigger as well, so I think he’s got a lot of advantages.

“But like I said I do lean more towards Gervonta in that fight because I think Tank is just more experienced. But it’s a 50-50 fight, it’s hard to say who is going to win, but I wish them both the best.”
