Nope, there wasn’t ‘mayhem’ at Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia

The Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia weigh-in had a little needle to it, as expected for a Pay Per View push as high as this one.

However, the actual notion of ‘mayhem’ was a vast overstatement by the hosts at Premier Boxing Champions.

Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia trash talk

They have to promote the fight, but a slight push and trash-talking to each other didn’t represent what took place.

Davis and Garcia went face-to-face and insult-to-insult to try and sell their 136-pound catchweight bout on Saturday.

It’s brimming nicely. But it has to be said that interest in the fight is considerably lower than expected.

That hasn’t stopped the attempts to secure a few more sales at the $84.99 price tag. And why wouldn’t they?
