Gervonta Davis Gives Ryan Garcia Better Chance Defeating Corona Virus Than Him
Undefeated light weight prospect Ryan Garcia and WBA lightweight champion Gervonta Davis got involved in a series of exchanges on twitter as both seem to be on a collision course, possibly going to happen in future.
The WBA Champion dismissively replied to a tweet and taunts from the propect concerning their fight happening sooner than later and his comparisons were mind blowing.
“You [got a] better chance at beating the Coronavirus than beating me,” Davis stated in a Tweet to Garcia. “[But] whatever, Christopher Reeve!”
The conversation seem to get towards the ring direction after Davis referred to Garcia as a “lil Man” in one of his tweets and Garcia tried tricking him into an insulating competition by mocking Davis, who is only 5 feet,5½ Inches tall.
“I know you aren’t calling anyone little man,” Garcia responded. “I want my shot at your fake ass title, I want to prove to the world I’m the real champ.”
