Gervonta Davis v Ryan Garcia, what can any blogger write that hasn’t already been said. This fight sells itself as these budding superstars face each other on April 22nd, six days after tax day, which probably gives them more incentive to beat the hell out of each other after giving their money to Uncle Sam. That’s your Uncle Sam, not mine, I officially disowned him. He’s funny, he’s your uncle one day a year and then you don’t hear from him. No birthday gifts or hanukkah money. Anyway, getting off topic…. Davis v Garcia (pictured above in their best impersonation of the Walking Dead) is a much anticipated fight because of how these two combatants generally dispose of their opponents, with extreme prejudice… huh, some people may not understand that… let me put it another way, coup de grace, yeah… that probably confused you more, how about cold-cocking, ehhh, that one is a little old fashion, the tik tok generation might misinterpret that to mean something else, how about… they separate their opponents from the waking world?, they lay out the slumber lumber?, cure insomnia?, they put put their opponents to sleep in brutal fashion, most of the time.
Let’s start with the betting favorite, Gervonta Davis (pictured above wearing the floral skin shirt). Davis, with 26 wins and no losses, 24 wins by KO, is as close as to a perfect fighter as you are going to get in the sport today. Davis (pictured above wondering if tattoos come off with alcohol rubs) has the best balance in the sport. This is what lets him generate that big power. While most people lunge and throw shots off balance, Davis always seems to have his feet in the right spot to generate power. While the training helps him, for Davis, it’s natural. It’s as if he was born to do just what he is doing. If Garcia, who has lapses in defense, allows Davis to find his range and get into a groove, it’s possible that he will make a lot of money in a short period of time, I mean shorter than 12 rounds… it’s possible that Davis will knock out Garcia. Now a little birdy just told me that is just what’s going to happen, but who listens to talking birds, they freak me out, couldn’t even watch Sesame Street because of it, but they do wield that magic.
Now for Ryan Garcia, or KingRy, it’s actually King Ry, two words, but somehow it got pushed together and people pronounce as one word “kingry”, whose sports a record of 23 wins no losses 19 wins by KO, well, Garcia (pictured above hallucinating off a bad mushroom trip) has natural gifts. God gave him speed (not the kind you ingest, God isn’t a drug dealer) and he gave him force (think more two cars colliding, less Luke Skywalker). This makes him perfect for the science of pugilism and believe it or not, it is a science, physics to be exact, because Force equals mass times acceleration and (along with power) are the two most important equations in boxing. And Garcia is a star student in the science of pugilism. If Garcia can maintain the proper distance and force Davis to overcommit, and Davis gets hit, he usually allows it to happen against inferior opponents that can’t hurt him just to motivate himself but this won’t be the case here, than Garcia can set up a science lab class in the middle ring and show the world what happens in Newton’s lesser known Fourth Law, the law of gravity, which basically states, all items fall to earth, especially if you are asleep.
Good Luck and Buena Suerte to both fighters… This is a pick’em fight and I’ll pick’em after it’s all over, less chances of me being wrong that way. Also, I hope neither person bets their wallets (the prize money), what are they going to carry their driver’s licenses in if they do and lose. They’re entertaining millions of people and both fighters should reap the rewards of that, don’t get goaded into simplistic behavior, it’s unseemly.
