“That’s bullsh*t,” Garcia said of his $200K offer to fight. “Why am I being held back financially? What is the problem here? Why is DAZN giving out big numbers to guys fighting nobodies? It’s f*cked up how I’m being treated. I’m not asking for $100 million. Just give me the check I deserve. How am I one of the biggest fighters in the world and I get bigger paychecks outside of boxing?”
Gervonta Davis saw a tweet about the above quote by Garcia and poked fun at his fellow boxer. "ðððððððð 200k?????? He need that money back from him buying that Ferrari...stop trying to keep up broke boy! ð«ð«ð«." Ryan Garcia clapped back at Davis by replying, "Yeah I get endorsement deals outside of boxing, something you don’t know about bc you hit woman."
Garcia was bringing up the recent charges made against Davis following a recorded incident that showed the boxer man-handling his ex. "And it still don’t add up what I’m getting paid...Mr âð¼ð¤ð»ð¤ð» uh occasion," Davis responded. Check it out below.
