This is the art of war: Gervonta Davis’ trainer

Hours after the fight between Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis ended, Mongolian fighter Erdenebat Tsendbaatar, who was Ryan’s sparring partner, uploaded a video saying that in training before the fight, he hurt Garcia with the same punch with which he Tank Davis knocked him out.

“Hey King Ryan, I hurt you with a body shot,” Tsendbaatar said in the clip. “Now you lost to Tank. I’m sorry. Are you OK?”

At the time, in press conferences and tweets before the fight, Tank Davis noted that he learned that Ryan had been injured by a body shot.

After the Tsendbaatar video, Garcia pointed out that he had an infiltrator in his camp, passing information to Davis’s team, and now Ford seems very close to confirming that speculation.

“This is the art of war,” Ford revealed during a recent interview with Fight Hub. “You have to be ready for the art of war. When you get in that ring it’s war. In war you have spies, you have to reckon with all kinds of tactics. When we’re getting ready for a fight, we’re really getting ready for a fight.”

When asked directly if there was an insider, Ford simply lauhged it off.

“I would say that there was an infiltrator”, he answered.

Bernard Hopkins, a partner at Golden Boy Promotions, assures that Ryan García went up injured in the ribs from a blow he received in a sparring session, that “Tank” Davis and he knew it and that is why he attacked that area.

“I think they connected it with a blow that he did not see on the side of the liver or the rib that was already injured and violated,” Hopkins said in an interview with DAZN Boxing Show. “He was already violated. Ryan’s fight plan went out the window when Ryan had no answers to the pressure coming from Tank. And that’s when Tank realized it, because he saw something, felt something, or heard something.”
