Young boxing star Ryan Garcia took his first loss as he was knocked out by Gervonta Davis at this past weekend’s massive boxing fight in Las Vegas.

At the post-fight press conference, he commented on liver punch that put him down in the seventh round.

“He just caught me with a good shot,” Garcia said. “I don’t want to make any excuses in here. He caught me with a good shot and I just couldn’t recover and that’s it. He caught me with a good body shot, snuck under me and caught me good. I couldn’t breathe. I was going to get back up, but I just couldn’t get up.”

Talking to the media, the 24-year-old admitted that he wasn’t feeling at his best on the night of the fight.

“I mean, from an honest like perception of it, I didn’t feel too good,” Garcia said. “I mean, I felt a little weak, you know, going into the ring. My legs didn’t feel too much under me, but once the fight got going, you know, it kinda all came together. So, I can’t really pin it on that too much. It is what it is.”

“I signed the contract and that’s that.”

Gervonta Davis surprised

Undefeated Gervonta Davis seemed surprised that the punch finished the fight when he taled at the reporters at the post-fight press conference.

“I didn’t think that body shot would end it,” Davis said. “But I saw his facial expression and that’s what made me take it to him. It was a good shot, for sure. I thought he was going to get up but I like to play mind games, so when he was looking at me, I was looking at him trying to tell him, ‘Get up!’. And he just shook his head, ‘No.’”
