Tsendbaatar Erdenebat Confirms Body Shot Injury To Ryan Garcia In Sparring
Ryan Garcia watched the referee count to ten and decided not to get up when he was dropped for the second time by Gervonta Davis in round seven of Saturday’s Las Vegas super fight.
The first knockdown was scored in round two with a terrifically-timed counter left hand that changed the momentum of the fight. The second time he went down it was the result of a late reaction to a left punch to the body. A shot that seemed brutal and Garcia concluded that he could not continue.
Tank claimed several weeks prior to the fight that the Joe Goosen-trained fighter had been previously hurt to the body.
“He got hurt to the body before, he thinks I don’t know that.” Davis then insinuated this wasn’t in a fight but rather in a recent sparring session.
One of Garcia’s sparring partners, former Olympian and 5-0 professional Tsendbaatar Erdenebat, has now claimed via Instagram that he was the one who injured Garcia to the body in one of their sparring sessions for his April 22 fight.
Erdenebat returns to the ring this Thursday, April 27 on a Boxing Insider Promotions/Lou Di Bella card at the Sony Hall, New York, USA live on DAZN. The Mongolian will face Edy Valencia Mercado (20-9-6) in an 8-round featherweight contest.
Suggestions that Davis had a mole in Garcia’s camp may well be true with Edenebat publicly claiming he caused an injury to Garcia after the fight and fans will assume that he may well have told Tank’s camp prior to the contest.
Since the breaking of this story, Ryan Garcia has now posted a story on Instagram confirming he did have a mole in his camp leaking Tank information, and with these coming hours after Erdenebat’s Instagram post, it seems plausible that Garcia believes it is the 2016 Olympian feeding his rival camp with inside information.
