Sources have confirmed to ESPN that Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia will face off in a highly-anticipated super fight on April 15 in Las Vegas at a 136-pound catchweight. This event promises to be one of the biggest in boxing history, and negotiations have been underway since November. Both fighters have signed contracts, and once Showtime and DAZN have signed on, the deal will be finalized.


The two young stars are at the forefront of the boxing world, with a combined social media following of over 13 million. Davis, who has 4.2 million Instagram followers, is the favorite to win the bout. The 28-year-old Baltimore native has an undefeated record of 28-0 with 26 knockouts. He recently defeated Hector Luis Garcia via ninth-round TKO to keep the Ryan Garcia matchup intact. Davis is one of the biggest needle-movers in boxing, and his reputation as a celebrity favorite attracts crowds to his fights.


Ryan Garcia, who has over 9 million Instagram followers, is also an exciting fighter to watch. Known for his quick hands and lightning-fast punches, Garcia is a rising star in the sport. The 24-year-old from Southern California has a record of 23-0 with 19 knockouts. He scored a career-best win in January 2021 after coming back from a knockdown to stop Luke Campbell in the seventh round.


The commercial appeal of this fight is massive, with both fighters having a massive fan base. The dispute over the rematch clause almost derailed the fight, but it was resolved last week. Golden Boy Promotions will serve as the lead promoter for the rematch if Garcia wins, while only Davis can exercise the rematch clause if he loses.


Davis is currently facing legal issues, with a sentencing scheduled for May 5 for a hit-and-run crash in Baltimore. He is also set to be arraigned on Feb. 23 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. Garcia, on the other hand, bypassed a tune-up fight to go directly into the high-stakes showdown with Davis.


The wait is finally over for fans who have been eagerly anticipating this fight since it was first announced on Instagram in November. This event promises to be a must-see event for boxing fans and will go down in history as one of the sport’s greatest fights.
