Garcia wants to face Davis sooner rather than later.

Ryan Garcia is not worried about the power Gervonta Davis possesses after the American delivered a knockout of the year contender against Leo Santa Cruz.

"Tank" stopped Leo Sanyta Cruz in the sixth round with a vicious uppercut to win the WBA junior lightweight and lightweight titles in San Antonio.

The Golden Boy fighter will take on Luke Campbell on December 4 in a WBC world title eliminator with the winner set to face Devin Haney next.With the lightweight division becoming the most exciting in boxing, Garcia is ready to face the best, including Davis.

"I'm extremely confident I'd beat that boy down," Garcia told TMZ Sports. "He's just a big bully."

"We all know we can both knock people out. We all know we can put people to sleep that don't belong in the ring with us. But, one day we got to step up and go against someone who can also get slept. And, that's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to get in there and give fans a fight they'll remember for the rest of their lives," Garcia said.

"It didn't even make my pulse go up.

"Don't run away from the specialness. I can hit like that too. I can hit like that too."

Teofimo Lopez is the current king of the 135-pound division having dethroned Vasyl Lomachenko to add the WBA, WBO, WBC Franchise titles to his IBF crown.

While indicating he could move up to junior welterweight and face Josh Taylor or Jose Ramirez, there are plenty of fights to come between himself, Garcia, Haney and Davis - four fighters who have been tipped to become the new "Four Kings" - the title of the famous rivalry between Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Marvelous Marvin Hagler in the 1980s.
