Gervonta Davis vs Luis Garcia: About Gervonta Davis
Davis (27-0, 25 KO) fought just once in 2022, stopping Rolando Romero in the sixth round in May. Romero outboxed Davis for most of the battle before Davis delivered a devastating left hand that stopped the contest. Over the past few years, Davis has risen as one of the sport’s brightest young stars, and his incredible power has carried him from super featherweight to super lightweight.
Gervonta Davis vs Luis Garcia: About Luis Garcia
After a phenomenal year, Luis Garcia (16-0, 10 KO) is coming off of it. He replaced Roger Gutierrez, the WBA super featherweight champion, against Chris Colbert in February after Gutierrez was forced to withdraw due to COVID. Garcia outclassed Colbert despite being a +1100 outsider to win by a significant margin.
Having won, Luis Garcia, an Olympian from 2016, will now compete against Gutierrez for the title. Due mainly to Gutierrez doing little to nothing for the first eight rounds of the fight until his team started making stoppage threats, Luis Garcia prevailed and won the title. Gutierrez stepped up during the closing rounds, making Garcia appear overpowered, but it was too late, and Luis Garcia won the bout.
To fight Davis, who had previously held the same belt that Garcia finally defeated Gutierrez for, he now switches to lightweight.
