Davis will be defending his belt against Héctor García on January 7 and during his recent open workout, he took a jibe at Ryan. The ‘Tank’ claims that Garcia’s mental health issues last year were fake. According to Davis, Garcia just used that issue as an excuse for not fighting. 

He said: “I feel as though that people just was saying that to get out of stuff. Yeah, like an excuse because I feel as though like we all, to be honest, we all have like mental health [issues]. But I think [in] boxing we control it. You know how it is.” According to Davis, boxers are the toughest in the whole combat sports and they shouldn’t be using mental health issues as an option to fuck other fighters.

The comments made by Gervonta Davis didn’t go under the rug and Ryan Garcia was quick to react to them. Garcia mocked Davis’ ability to speak and form sentences during his interviews. Garcia called out Davis for having a very low IQ to understand anything about mental health. 

“ ‘We all have mental health’ First off all you can’t even conjure up a clear sentence. I’ve boxed my whole life fought over 200 times I’d break a long time ago if it was that I was fearful to fight. You simply have never done your research and simply have low IQ,” wrote Garcia in a tweet.

The fighter then went on to post a series of tweets in which he mentioned that Davis only knows how to shout but will not be able to do anything inside the ring. The upcoming fight between these two has already gathered a lot of attention from the fans. Ryan Garcia is pretty famous on social media and surely knows how to sell a fight. The verbal battle and trash-talking between these two will definitely be very entertaining.
