Tyson hits the nail on the head with his prediction for Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia fight

In an episode of Hotboxin‘ with Mike Tyson, with Ne-Yo as the guest, Tyson made a prediction about the fight between Garcia and Davis. Tyson favored the Baltimore hard-hitter. And he did not believe that the fight would last too long.


Tyson said, “I don’t think it’s going to be a long fight. I could be wrong, five or six rounds. Tank’s coming out to kill you and not box around.” The 56-year-old also highlighted that Tank does go long and has done that in some of his previous fights. But, for the fight with Garcia, Tyson believed that ‘Tank’ was going to go straight at him without wasting any time.


He further added, ” Sometimes he box around, taking it into the long round so he could drown you. But, other than that, he’s gonna go straight at this guy.” It seems like Tyson was already sure of what was coming for the 24-year-old boxer and did not doubt Davis’s capabilities as a former three-division world champion.

And indeed, as predicted by Tyson, Tank went in for the ‘kill’ in the seventh round, and finished the match with a body shot that Garcia couldn’t recover from.

The numbers don’t lie…
Despite the result of the fight, Garcia was a part of history. And he is an equal representative of the 1.2 million PPV numbers and the Gate value of $22,800,00, the matchup between the two achieved. Both the boxers gave the fans a sensational performance. And showed that in boxing, the top contenders should fight each other.
