By Adam Baskin: Gervonta Davis lastly came out of the woodwork to react to Golden Boy Promotions employer Oscar De La Hoya stating that his fighter Ryan Garcia, “like it or not, is the brand-new face of PPV.”
In response to that remark from De La Hoya, Gervonta (29-0, 27 KOs) published a picture on Twitter revealing him understanding Ryan (23-1, 19 KOs) down in the 2nd round of their fight on April 22nd in Las Vegas.
Interestingly, Gervonta didn’t refute what De La Hoya stated about Ryan being the “brand-new face of PPV” since he can’t. De La Hoya explains that prior to Tank battled Ryan, his finest pay-per-view occasions remained in the 200K variety.
Tank will now return whence he came back to the lowly 200K buy variety after he encountered Kingry.
The just method Tank Davis can generate a lots of PPV purchases is to rematch Ryan Garcia or stop following the ‘Money May’ Floyd Mayweather Jr plan of cherry-picking weak opposition and the killers Shakur Stevenson, Devin Haney, Regis Prograis, and Subriel Matias.

Unfortunately for Tank, he’s NOT going to stop following the Mayweather security initially plan, so he’s going to return to eliminating lower opposition, and his PPV numbers will return to the 200K or perhaps 180K variety since boxing fans don’t wish to pay to view the usual inequalities that they’ve been seeing from the Baltimore native.
If Tank weren’t so avoidant and thought in his capability, he would take the dangerous battles to increase his PPV purchase rate and appeal by combating the opposition that fans wish to see against Shakur, Haney, William Zepeda, Prograis, Matias, Josh Taylor, and Gary Antuanne Russell.
Moving forward, what we’ll see from Tank is the exact same old usual, with Isaac Cruz trotted out for another sure-thing win for Gervonta or maybe a rematch with Rolly Romero. In other words, it’ll be a retread challenger for Tank, with his management hoping that fans will purchase this on PPV.
“He withstood a great deal of s**t throughout camp and specifically fight week and with the rehydration stipulation with the weights and this and that,” stated Oscar De La Hoya to Fight Hub TELEVISION about Ryan Garcia.
“Come on; he withstood a lot. For a kid his age being on that phase, I’m proud of him, and we’ll bring him back. It’s as simple as that,” stated De La Hoya on his prepare for the 24-year-old Kingry.
