Ryan Garcia and his ringside conversation with his trainer reveals the real reason for KO loss vs Gervonta Davis: “I didn’t wanna continue because of my rib”

Ryan Garcia recently revealed the reason behind his knockout loss to Gervonta Davis during a ringside conversation with his trainer Joe Goossen. According to Garcia, he didn’t want to continue the fight because of an injured rib, which he sustained after taking a thunderous body shot from Davis. The fight between the two young American lightweight stars started off tentatively, but the action picked up in the second round.

Davis was hit by Garcia’s quick combinations, but Davis lost control and was taken down by Tank’s counter left after missing a left hook. Garcia survived the knockdown but was cautious and let Davis grab the lead. The Flash KingRy, on the other hand, was able to knock Tank with a few powerful rights before losing the fight in the eighth round to a body shot. He bowed his head and sat out the official’s count.

Despite the dismal outcome, the bout garnered 1.2 million pay-per-view purchases in the US alone, with Oscar De La Hoya attributing the high number to Garcia.
