Even before 2023 started, Tank had two fights lined up for the year. Davis first fought Hector Garcia in January 2023 to defend his WBA(regular) Lightweight title. Davis was able to showcase his power once again as one big punch from Davis was enough for Hector Garcia to decide to not come back after eighth round.
However, the bigger and more anticipated fight for Gervonta Davis is his next fight against Ryan Garcia. Ryan Garcia has actively sought out a fight against Davis and also got support from Tank for the super fight. This fight required several different promotions and broadcasters to come on board and crack a deal that makes sense to them.
That deal was finalized in November 2022 when it was decided that the fight would be produced by Showtime on PPV. It was officially announced that Ryan Garcia and Davis would meet in 2023. The same thing was re-iterated by Davis after he took care of Hector Garcia.
However, a disagreement over a rematch clause has stalled the talks for sometime. But, the fight is confirmed now to take place as a joint PPV from Showtime and Dazn Streaming. Ryan Garcia, former interim WBC Lightweight Champion, returned to the boxing ring in 2022 with 2 easy wins. He also holds an undefeated record with 23 wins and 19 knockouts.
