Gervonta Davis v Ryan Garcia: Fight date, ring walk time, undercard & betting odds

It is still early days in the boxing calendar, but April's bout between Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia is already being labelled as a potential fight of the year candidate.

Two of boxing's biggest names have agreed to put their reputations on the line at a catchweight of 136lb, and both have promised explosive performances as they look to prove who is the top dog. 

Both men usually fight at the lightweight limit of 135lbs, but with nothing on the line, they have agreed to fight at a higher weight.

Neither fighter has ever tasted defeat, and both carry power, so this contest could be an absolute classic in the fighting capital of the world.

Who is the favourite for Gervonta Davis v Ryan Garcia?

Davis is as short as 2/5 to win the fight, while Garcia is priced as the 7/4 outsider.

Known as "Tank", Davis has showcased tremendous power throughout his career so far, and he is 8/11 to win by KO, TKO or disqualification.

Garcia, who will have height and reach advantage, is 3/1 to win by the same method or 15/2 to win by decision or technical decision. 

Are there any belts on the line for Gervonta Davis v Ryan Garcia?

No belts will be on the line in Las Vegas, even though Davis has won his fair share over the years.

He has held multiple world titles in three different weight classes, but his WBA (regular) lightweight title will not be up for grabs, mainly due to the fact that the contest is at 136lbs.

Garcia's best win came in 2021 when he knocked out Luke Campbell to win the WBC interim lightweight title, but he has yet to win an official world crown.

What is Gervonta Davis' record?

Davis' record stands at 28-0, and he is widely regarded as one of the biggest punchers in the lightweight division.

The American southpaw is aggressive, fast and dangerous in every fight, and he has proven that by winning 26 of his contests inside the distance.

Davis has stopped the likes of Yuriorkis Gamboa, Leo Santa Cruz, Mario Barrios, Rolando Romero and Hector Luis Garcia so far, and at 28, he still has plenty of time left to cause more damage.

What is Ryan Garcia's record?

Garcia, known as "King Ry", is also unbeaten, but his record is 23-0.

The Californian made his debut in 2016, and he is one of Golden Boy Promotions' biggest names.

Wins over Romero Duno and Fransisco Fonseca helped build his confidence towards the end of 2019 and the start of 2020 before he stopped Campbell 12 months later.

He has since recorded impressive victories over Emmanuel Tagoe and Javier Fortuna, and Garcia looks to have grown into his frame in recent years.

Nineteen of his 23 wins have come via stoppage, and he cannot be overlooked for this bout, despite Davis' freakish power.

Who is on the undercard for Gervonta Davis v Ryan Garcia?

The WBA super-middleweight title will be on the line on the undercard as David Morrell takes on Sena Agbeko.

There are bound to be fireworks when Gabriel Rosado returns to the ring, as he will face Bektemir Melikuziev at super-middleweight.

The pair first met in 2021, and Melikuziev will be out for revenge after Rosado recorded a stunning one-punch knockout victory.

Elsewhere, Elijah Garcia will look to extend his record to 15-0 when he faces Kevin Salgado at middleweight.
