A Ryan Garcia vs Gervonta Davis fight needs to happen

LOS ANGELES—Ryan Garcia. Gervonta “Tank” Davis.

Boxing: Please don’t screw this up.

Javier Fortuna had barely scooped up his mouthpiece after being put down for the third and final time on Saturday when the buzz for a Garcia-Davis mega fight began to build. Fortuna, a former 130-pound titleholder, had been beaten before. But he had never been the beat. Not like that, anyway. A body shot put Fortuna down in the fourth round. An orbital-bone-crunching left hook dropped him in the fifth. After absorbing another hook in the sixth, Fortuna, from one knee, wisely chose not to continue.
