Gervonta Davis Challenges Ryan Garcia to Retirement After Haney Fight

Gervonta Davis, the undefeated boxing sensation, has stirred up controversy on social media by urging Ryan Garcia to retire from boxing following Garcia's recent victory over Devin Haney. Garcia, known for his explosive style and impressive record, dropped Haney three times during their bout at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, ultimately winning by a majority decision.

However, Garcia's victory was not without its share of drama. Leading up to the fight, Garcia displayed concerning behavior, including weighing in over 3 pounds above the 140-pound limit, resulting in financial penalties. Despite these issues, Garcia managed to secure the win, adding another notable victory to his record.

The rivalry between Davis and Garcia is no secret. Last April, the two faced off in a highly anticipated match that generated over $100 million in box office and pay-per-view revenues, marking it as one of Nevada boxing history's highest-grossing contests. In that bout, Davis emerged victorious, stopping Garcia in the seventh round at the T-Mobile Arena.

In the aftermath of Garcia's win over Haney, Davis took to social media to express his thoughts. In a now-deleted tweet, Davis stated that if a rematch were to happen, the result would be no different, suggesting that Garcia should retire to avoid further injury.

Garcia, however, fired back, challenging Davis to a rematch at a catchweight of 144 pounds, stating,

"Everyone wanna talk about the little stupid Tank. Let’s fight nuff of that funny talk. Come see me at 144 and let’s stop the talk. If you beat Frank [Martin on June 15] let’s run it."

The exchange between the two fighters has sparked interest among fans, who are eager to see if a rematch will indeed take place and if Garcia can secure another victory over Davis.
