Gervonta Davis will meet another Garcia name before heading to trial, where a judge will decide if a Ryan Garcia clash occurs.
Davis has signed on the dotted line to battle the Golden Boy star in the first half of 2023. However, jail time will ultimately decide if the clash happens.
If a Baltimore judge follows through on a promise to put Davis behind bars in February, the Ryan Garcia fight will be off until a later date.

About Gervonta Davis vs Hector Garcia
The Baltimore native Davis (27-0, 25 KOs) has established himself as one of boxing’s hottest attractions, capturing five world titles through three divisions.
This run includes the WBA secondary lightweight title he currently holds. Devin Haney is the actual holder of that belt.
After blasting out the previously unbeaten Rolando Romero with a single punch in May, Davis returns to take on Héctor Luis García.
He needs to pave the way for the recently announced blockbuster clash against unbeaten star Ryan Garcia in the Spring of 2023.
The WBA Super Featherweight World Champion, Héctor Luis García (16-0, 10 KOs), represented the Dominican Republic in the 2016 Olympics. He is coming off a spectacular 2022 with two marquee victories.
Now training in Las Vegas, García scored one of the biggest upsets of the year in February when he defeated then-unbeaten Chris Colbert.
He then captured the world title with a unanimous decision over incumbent Roger Gutierrez in August.
