We had a great fight, the best man won. My hat’s off to you. And again, ‘Tank’ Davis, you’re a great fighter. Ryan Garcia, I have your back. Bernard has your back.

Guaranteed.”Garcia, 24, suffered the first loss of his professional career at the hands of Davis after sustaining a devastating punch to the liver midway through the seventh round.“And so, as for myself, my security team told me, ‘Boss, we’ve got to get the fuck out of here,’ because I received death threats. You guys don’t know this, I received death threats throughout the whole week, and they just said it was simply too dangerous so we got out of there.
