Robert Garcia: Lomachenko has a chance to drag out the fight, but Davis’ power is too much for him

The famous coach considers the American the favorite in the fight

Famous trainer Robert Garcia considers American WBA belt holder Gervonta “Tank” Davis favorite to fight IBF and IBO lightweight champion Vasily Lomachenko.

“I think that five or six years ago I would have chosen Lomachenko right away. Now this can be very difficult. Given his age and size, because Lomachenko is not the biggest lightweight, I have to give preference to “Tank”. He just has incredible power.”

“But Lomachenko has excellent skills. Loma is a fighter who will not be afraid of him, he will be in great shape. So if Lomachenko fights smart, if he knows how to win the first few rounds and then fights the rest of the rounds smart, then there is a chance that he will take this fight. Loma is a very smart guy, but I think Davis’ power will be too much for him.”

Earlier, promoter Bob Arum said that representatives of the American and Ukrainian have been negotiating for several weeks about a head-to-head confrontation between the two champions. According to preliminary information, the Lomachenko-Davis fight could take place in November 2024.

On the night of June 16, Gervonta defended his championship title, knocking out compatriot Frank Martin. The 29-year-old boxer remains undefeated, and he won 28 of his thirty victories ahead of schedule.

On May 12, Lomachenko defeated Australian George Kambosos by technical knockout in his last fight. The Ukrainian won the vacant IBF lightweight belt, which was previously vacated by his previous opponent Devin Haney. Vasily also took away the IBO belt, which Kambosos owned.
