Ryan Garcia wants to fight Gervonta Davis and Manny Pacquiao after Luke Campbell bout
The undefeated lightweight contender in Ryan Garcia is showing no signs of fear heading to his upcoming interim title bout against English boxer Luke Campbell. In fact, he holds an immense amount of confidence in himself that he is already calling out his next opponents after the match versus Campbell, bannered by Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis.
“After I beat Luke Campbell, I definitely want to fight Tank Davis next,” Garcia said to BoxingScene.com. “Gervonta Davis is next on my list. Maybe [WBC lightweight titlist] Devin Haney can fight Teofimo [Lopez, lineal lightweight champion and WBA/IBF/WBO titlist] and after that I can fight the winner.”
Garcia also expressed his desire to fight Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao in the squared circle before he gets to hang up his gloves in the near future.
“After Tank and before I fight the winner of Devin and Teofimo, maybe I can get my dream fight with Manny Pacquiao,” insists Garcia. “After I beat Tank Davis, my dream fight is to get to Manny Pacquiao before gets to go from the sport.”
Before he gets to complete his wishlist, Ryan Garcia is first expected to have his hands full against a tough opponent in Campbell. The 33-year-old fighter is entering the match with 20 wins accounting for 16 knockouts and three losses in his career.
Tank Davis won’t be an easy matchup for Garcia as well, having an immaculate record of 24 wins with 23 knockouts without any losses. Lastly, Pacquiao, who is easily regarded as one of the best boxers in the world, is still a worthy opponent at this stage of his career as he holds a 62-7-2 record.
Ryan Garcia must first prove that he deserves the right to face the aforementioned veteran boxers as he aims to snag the 21st win of his young career. The title bout between Garcia and Campbell will be slated on Jan. 2. at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
