Gervonta Davis is not one to take a slight lying down, especially when it comes from his opponent’s promoter, Oscar De La Hoya. After Ryan Garcia lost to Davis in a highly anticipated fight, De La Hoya took to Twitter to proclaim that Garcia was “the new face of PPV,” citing the event’s reported 1.2 million buys.

But Davis wasn’t having it. In retaliation, Davis posted a photo of himself defeating Garcia, making it abundantly clear that he was to be blamed for the fight’s success. And he’s not wrong. While Garcia certainly brought a large fan base to the table, it was the match-up between two undefeated fighters that probably drove the pay-per-view buys.
