Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis vs Ryan Garcia: Tony Bellew predicts late knockout for ‘super fight’

Former world cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew has delivered his prediction for this weekend’s mega-fight between Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis and Ryan Garcia.

Tony Bellew has made a major prediction for this weekend's huge 136lb catchweight bout between Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia.

Tank and Garcia are two of the biggest stars in boxing and after months of negotiations, it was confirmed that they will meet at a 136lb catchweight in Las Vegas on April 22.

Both fighters are unbeaten in the professional ranks, and it is refreshing that they have agreed to put it all on the line before they are past their peak.

Bellew thinks boxing fans are right to be "over the moon" that this fight is taking place.

"You often see boxing fans get frustrated when the big fights don't come off, but you'll find that there's not a supporter of the sport who isn't over the moon about this fight taking place," Bellew told DAZN.

"Two relatively young fighters, both potentially at the peak of their powers, both unbeaten, and the winner is set to become one of the biggest names in the sport. It's what you want from a super fight."

Bellew reckons "super fight" will be a "memorable encounter" that Davis will win via a "huge shot" in the latter rounds.

"The confidence coming from both men is incredible when you think about it. Don't get me wrong, at this level, every fighter thinks they'll win, but these two think they'll get the job done without breaking a sweat. I don't see that happening at all," Bellew added.

"Both are excellent fighters and if they do what they do well then, I think it's going to come down to who has the most on the night.

"For me, that man is Davis and that's just because he has so much power and I think he'll land a huge shot some point late in the fight.

"Garcia will start quick, and I expect him to be in front when the fight gets into the later rounds, but Davis will be patient and when he does find the target of Garcia, I think that'll be enough to end a memorable encounter. I can't wait."
