Ryan Garcia admits to suffering rib injury before losing to Gervonta Davis via knockout to the body

In the aftermath of his defeat to Gervonta Davis in Las Vegas, Ryan Garcia was caught on camera taking a knee after absorbing a body shot. Footage from Showtime’s All-Access series showed Garcia’s trainer, Joe Goosen, asking if the punch had hit his rib, to which Garcia confirmed before Goosen admitted he had suspected as much.

Garcia was unable to resume the fight within the 10-count, resulting in a seventh-round TKO. Despite it being his first loss, Garcia did not make excuses and acknowledged the body shot as the reason for his decision to end the fight. Garcia also announced his intention to move up from the 135-pound division and compete in the 140-pound category in future.
