At only (5-foot-5.5), WBA lightweight champion Davis is one of the most explosive fighters in the division. A lefty, he generates devastating punching power through his core, translating to damage-ensuing hooks and uppercuts. Through 28 professional bouts (also his age), Davis remains undefeated. Even more overwhelming is the fact that he has won 18 of his past 19 matches via KO, highlighting a devastating career knockout rate of nearly 93 percent. Davis’ reach of 67.5 inches gives up significant length to Garcia, but expect Tank to be choose his spots wisely. In Davis’ last fight, he stopped a previously undefeated Hector Luis Garcia via 8-round TKO.
In the other corner, 24-year-old Ryan Garcia has been one of the major draws in the current epoch. With lightning-quick hand speed and a gargantuan social media fanbase, Garcia has publicly called for this match with Davis for some time now, as the two have built a healthy rivalry between each other. Garcia is also undefeated and boasts solid power (82.6 percent career KO rate) to go along with his speed. Standing at 5-foot-10 with a reach of 70 inches, the taller-Garcia will do well to stay out of Davis’ power range.
