Gervonta Davis, Hector Luis Garcia make weight for lightweight fight Saturday

Gervonta Davis and Hector Luis Garcia on Friday made weight for their pay-per-view lightweight fight Saturday at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.

Both fighters came in at 134 pounds, one below the division limit.

Davis (27-0, 25 KOs) is fighting at 135 for the third consecutive fight after fighting at 130 and then 140 in 2020 and 2021. He holds the secondary WBA title, which Boxing Junkie doesn’t recognize.

“Tank” has agreed to face Ryan Garcia in his next fight, assuming he defeats Garcia.

Garcia (16-0, 10 KOs) is a 130-pound titleholder moving up to 135 for the first time. He had a break-out year last year, outpointing Chris Colbert and then doing the same against Roger Gutierrez to win his belt.
