Ryan Garcia is one of the best young fighters in the boxing world. At just 21 years old, the WBC Silver lightweight champion is the future face of the sport and just keeps rising in the truly vicious 135-pound division. As a result, Garcia believes he should be paid as such.
After reportedly being offered $200,00 for a fight on July 4, Garcia turned it down, profanely insisting on that he's worth much more. In a response to that statement, lightweight rival Gervonta Davis told the world why he thought Garcia was gunning for more money.
Garcia was not too fond of Davis’ response and went for the knockout reply.
These two have not stepped in the ring toe to toe yet, but Garcia definitely hit Davis where it hurt.
Davis was arrested in February for domestic violence and battery following a dispute with an ex-girlfriend. Knowing this information, Garcia went for it all by letting Davis know not to worry about his pockets.
If this does not add more fuel to the fire for a potential fight between the two, there is not much that will. Garcia bringing up Davis’ personal life and previous history of misconduct was an easy target. Until these two work something out to get in the ring, the Twitter fingers will continue to fly.
