Boxing Pound-for-Pound Top 10 Rankings: January 2023

Some thoughts on Gervonta Davis’s knockout win over Hector Luis Garcia

• This was a quality win. Garcia, despite being a sizeable underdog, is an accomplished fighter. He was undefeated and a legitimate 130-pound titleholder who was coming off the two biggest wins of his career. He had a good game plan, too. He didn’t overcommit on his punches early and refused to fall into some of the smartly placed traps Davis was setting for him. Davis, though, can crack, and when he finally caught Garcia in the eighth round, it was over.
