The two are undefeated, which makes the fight a marquee match-up. Davis, 28, has a record of 27-0, 25 KOs (knockouts) and Garcia, 24, is 23-0, 19 KOs. The contest is slated to take place in April, ESPN reported citing sources. However, no official date has been confirmed yet. 

Gervonta Davis had earlier tweeted that he will first fight on January 7. The Baltimore-based boxer is set for a trial on February 16 for his alleged involvement in a hit-and-run incident, according to court records.

The Davis-Garcia superfight will be produced and distributed by Showtime, sources told ESPN. DAZN, which streams Garcia’s fights, will offer the PPV through its service.

DAZN’s CEO of North America region, Joe Markowski, tweeted that there’s an agreement in principle for the bout but that contracts have yet to be exchanged.

“Boxing needs this fight right now. It’s time for us to get back to what made this sport so great for the fans: Glamourous fights in places like Las Vegas, grudge match storylines, and most importantly – the best fighting the best,” Garcia tweeted.

Davis won the International Boxing Federation’s Super Featherweight Championship in 2017. He is also a two-time WBA Super Featherweight champion and the 2019 WBA Lightweight winner. 

Also known as Tank, his most-recent wins came against Isaac Cruz and Rolly Romero in 135-pound bouts.

“We have two supremely talented boxers, both in their prime and with huge fanbases, meeting in a career-defining fight. This is the epitome of a crossover boxing event. All credit to Tank and Ryan for staying the course and giving the fans the fight they want,” Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza said in a statement.
