It appears that the long-awaited showdown between rising lightweights will finally take place.
After two years of slinging insults on social media, Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia looks to be a reality.
Garcia confirmed on Thursday that he and Davis will face off in Las Vegas in 2023. Davis confirmed that the fight is a "done deal" after he accepts a fight against an unnamed opponent on January 7.
"I'm so pumped this fight is finally in place," Garcia wrote. "I've worked hard, I'm in the prime of my career, and I know I'll be the biggest boxer in the world. This legacy begins today."
