Gervonta “Tank” Davis On Devin Haney's Loss: “He's Not Who They Think He Is”

Gervonta 'Tank' Davis says Devin Haney's loss to Ryan Garcia showed he's not the fighter he “thinks he is”.

In other words, Haney (31-1, 15 KOs) was exposed by Garcia, and showed that his career is built on several things:

1. To be heavier than his enemies
2. Choosing to object carefully
3. Being lucky with scoring goals
4. Excessive immersion and impunity

Even though Ryan (25-1, 20 KOs) was tested in the heat of his fight with Haney, that doesn't change anything about what we saw that night on April 20, with Devin getting knocked out in 12 rounds in his decision loss.

“He looked at this young man”

“I watched the war. I think he is [Devin Haney] ignore the boy. He saw what I could do to the boy and thought he could do the same thing. He did a lot of things wrong, and it showed that he's not who they think he is…or who he is, but life shows you,” said Gervonta Davis on Big Boy TV when asked if he saw Devin Haney vs. .Ryan Garcia fight.

Haney looking at Ryan is not the reason why he lost that fight. He wouldn't have lost anyway because he doesn't have the chin or strength to beat a fighter like Ryan Garcia or any of the other top ten fighters at 140.

Even if Haney was 100% ready for the match with Ryan, he would still be beaten because his game is based on eating too much, and you can't fight him like that. Ryan's left check hook is designed to nail close fights, and Haney's constant grappling habit puts him in the line of fire all night.

The reason why Haney was not taken out of the fight was because referee Harvey Dock stopped three strikes in the seventh round, allowing him to hold repeatedly from the seventh round. If the referee had done his job, the fight would have ended in the seventh round.

Haney's work: On a Thin Snow

Haney's career is on ice now, and the only way he will survive is if his promoter, Eddie Hearn, matches him with weaker boxers from now on and doesn't rematch him with another strong guy.

Unfortunately, it's unlikely that Haney will be a top-level fighter if he avoids all the killers at 140 and 147, but at least he'll be able to make decent money against smaller fighters.
