Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia's Pre-Fight Preview

Neither Davis nor Garcia can be labeled as some super slick, and extremely technical boxers, However, both have specific styles that have worked well for them up till now.

Although Garcia has a taller frame and longer reach compared to Davis, he isn't much of a ranged fighter. Instead of using his jab to keep his opponents at bay Garcia relies on his superior hand speed and power to gain an edge in the ring. He adopts an upright stance and uses quick combinations of left hooks and right hands to keep the more aggressive fighters away from him.

On the other hand, many fans like to say that Davis is only an explosive power puncher, however, the Southpaw is much more technically advanced than his nickname "Tank" would suggest. He is aggressive, but not reckless. He doesn't rush in without caution and is patient. He is great at targeting his opponents' bodies to slow them down before opening up on the head. While he prefers to press forward and take the fight to his opponent, he does not do so blindly, always looking for an opportunity to wear them down with body shots.

As far as punching power is concerned, both fighters can put their opponents down. Garcia has won 19 out of 23 fights via KOs, and Davis has finished 26 out of 28. So, you can say that there is a high probability that this fight will end in the distance.

Garcia has incredibly fast hands, and his lead left hook from Orthodox is one of his most deadly weapons. Though fighting a talented southpaw like Davis will present some challenges, Garcia's speed will come in handy.

On the other hand, Davis is known for his incredible one-punch knockout ability, with his uppercut against Leo Santa Cruz and the counter left hand that incapacitated Rolando Romero being memorable examples. If he can get inside Garcia's Rage while avoiding his fast attacks, he will definitely land some really strong punches. In my opinion, his punches will have more power than Garcia's.

When it comes to traditional boxing defense, Ryan Garcia is a step behind Davis. He has a style that relies on outpunching his defensive mistakes, and though that may have wired against other opponents, Gervonta Davis could take advantage of it.

Davis has shown excellent defensive awareness in his past few fights. Learning from his mentor, Floyd Mayweather Jr he also incorporates the shoulder roll into his game and is much more patient than Garcia.

Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia's Fight Prediction

Overall, this is a really interesting fight that many people believe is going to be very close. However, I believe that most boxing fans will be surprised. I believe that there is a major difference between Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia.

Davis is more powerful, more skilled, and has more experience against better competition. He has already held world titles in three different weight classes. For my final prediction, I'm siding with Gervonta Davis, and I believe he will win this fight via knockout in the second half of the fight.
