Undefeated Lightweight superstar boxer Ryan Garcia has just racked up his second win of the year, but the former interim champion still has his aim set on one fight- Gervonta Davis.

I will fight Tank next, if Tank wants that at 140: Ryan Garcia

Just three months after his unanimous decision win over Emmanuel Tagoe, “King Ryan” marked his 23rd professional career victory as the 23-year-old took out Javier Fortuna via 6th round KO in a Light Welterweight bout at the Crypto.com Arena in LA this Saturday night.

After a one sided affair that stretched over five rounds, Garcia sealed the deal in the sixth- sending Fortuna down to the canvas with a brutal left hook, before Referee Jerry Cantu counted out “El Abejón” at the 27th second mark.

Speaking to DAZN’s Chris Mannix after the victory, Garcia said that while the bout “speaks for itself”, he did acknowledge that Fortuna is a hard hitter.

“I know that I performed well for myself, and I know that I was crisp, I was sharp and I stayed in my truth. I didn’t do anything crazy. I know how good of a fighter I am. I just had to put it all together and you seen that come together today. … I mean, the fight speaks for itself. I don’t need to Gettysay anything. You seen how I fought,” he said.

“He hit hard,” Garcia commented on his opponent, “He has a hard fist. I just told you when I face harder punchers, I box better.” [H/T Boxing Scene]

Garcia also stated that he feels better at Light Welterweight and won’t opt for a drop back down to Lightweight as well as calling out “Tank” Davis once again for a clash at 140, which Garcia believes will end with an “ass whooping” for his grudge rival.

“I felt way better (fighting at 140),” he told Chris Mannix in the ring. “I’m not going back down to 135 for nothing, but I will fight Tank next, if Tank wants that at 140,” Garcia went on, “That’s gonna give me the respect I deserve. I’m never afraid, I have a spirit of competition in me, and you’re gonna see that come out when I fight Tank and whoop his ass.” [H/T Bad Left Hook]
