Ryan Garcia just TKO’d fellow boxer Gervonta Davis on Twitter. 

Ryan Garcia is a fresh-faced 21-year-old undefeated professional boxer. He’s fast and vicious with his hands, but Garcia’s even more devastating with his Twitter game as Gervonta Davis just found out the hard way.

Garcia (20-0, 17 KOs) hasn’t fought since the onset of the pandemic, but he’s been garnering a lot of attention on social media. He has shown off his lightning punching speed. Garcia has also taken shots at his promotional company, Golden Boy Boxing and DAZN. Now, he’s mixing in shots to fellow undefeated lightweight boxer Davis (23-0, 22 KOs) on social media.

Garcia and Davis are both big names in the same division. They’re young and trying to establish dominance as lightweights. They’re also used to talking trash to one another on social media. Garcia upped his attack on Tuesday, June 9.

What was Gervonta Davis implying in the initial tweet?

 Sports Illustrated recently ran a story about Garcia’s displeasure with Golden Boy and DAZN. Garcia feels insulted by the money he was offered to fight on July 4. Apparently, $200,000 isn’t enough for Garcia to step in the ring, even considering the country is on lockdown during the pandemic.

“Why am I being held back financially?” said Garcia to Sports Illustrated. “What is the problem here? Why is DAZN giving out big numbers to guys fighting nobodies? It’s fu—ed up how I’m being treated. I’m not asking for $100 million. Just give me the check I deserve.”

Davis saw the story and took aim at Garcia on Twitter.

“200k??????” read Davis’s Tweet. “He need [sic] that money back from him buying that Ferrari…stop trying to keep up broke boy!”

It was a good shot by Davis, but Garcia wasn’t having it. Davis was feeling surprisingly brave considering his recent run-in with the law for domestic violence in February, which was also caught on video for the world to see. Garcia was sure to throw Davis’s disgusting assault back in his face.

Garcia responded with a Tweet that read, “Yeah I get endorsement deals outside of boxing, something you don’t know about bc you hit woman [sic].”

The rivalry between Garcia and Davis is heating up, but Garcia is going to get the best of Davis every time on social media. Davis’s domestic violence case will haunt him and his legacy. His revolting behavior automatically makes him the villain.

It doesn’t seem like either boxer will be stepping into the ring soon, but a showdown between the two will be big business. Davis might eventually prove to be a better boxer than Garcia, but he will always the loser on social media.
