Devin Haney thinks Gervonta Davis is the betting favorite over Ryan Garcia for a reason, but wouldn’t be surprised if Garcia got the win.
Davis and Garcia are set to fight this Saturday in Las Vegas on pay-per-view in a massive fight for the entire sport of boxing. It’s a big fight that Davis is the betting favorite in but Haney says you can’t count out Garcia.
“I think it’s a good fight. Ryan has got the height, the length, the speed, but Tank has that power; he has that neutralizer. He has that experience; he’s been tested and been proven,” Haney said to Fight Hub TV (via BoxingScene). “The safe bet would be Tank, but you can’t count Ryan out as well. He has speed, he has power, and I don’t think he’s scared. He’s coming in there to win. We’ve seen Tank go down [on the scorecards] in rounds. We’ve seen [Garcia] come back [against Luke Campbell from a knockdown and score] a knockout, but we haven’t seen what he can do when he can’t against a puncher that he can’t just sleep on. If Tank were to blow him out of the water, we wouldn’t be surprised.”
Although Devin Haney has his own fight on May 20 against Vasyl Lomachenko, he will be paying close attention to this fight. He knows if he gets past Lomachenko, facing the winner of Davis-Garcia is very likely.
“Yeah, yeah, but it all starts with Loma, and once I’m victorious there, the winner, we would look to face,” said Haney.
For now, Devin Haney will just be watching Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia and he thinks Davis will get his hand raised. Yet, he wouldn’t be surprised if it is Garcia getting the win and pulling off the upset.
