Ryan Garcia had a great hype going into the Gervonta Davis fight however, Davis made it look too easy and took the win. Garcia who is known for his nasty hook could deliver at all and even after multiple tries didn’t land much. 

Vasiliy Lomachenko compared Garcia to his upcoming opponent, Devin Haney saying that it doesn’t matter how good his jab is, everybody knows about it. He said: “It’s the same as Ryan Garcia has a left hook but it doesn’t work against a guy who knows boxing. So the saying, we understand we know it, everything can happen during a fight. I don’t know what happened. If you know about his jab, I know about his jab too.”

Lomachenko isn’t afraid of Hanney and believes that he has studied everything the American has in his arsenal. It will be interesting to see how this fight goes as it might lead to some amazing match-ups in future.
