On April 22 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Garcia vs. Gervonta, the biggest boxing match of the year, will finally take place. Devin has already a long-standing dispute with Garcia. Hence there is a higher possibility that the two will want to settle their clash in the ring.
“If Ryan was to win, we can possibly get it on at 140. Obviously, the world knows I have trouble making 135. Maybe we can do it at 140 or even 135. No rehydration [clause]. I never do rehydration [clauses]. The biggest fights are in the 135-pound division.” Devin added.
