Ryan Garcia claims Floyd Mayweather protege Gervonta Davis was KNOCKED OUT in sparring ahead of Las Vegas grudge match | The Sun

RYAN GARCIA has claimed Gervonta Davis was "KNOCKED OUT COLD" in sparring ahead of their mouthwatering grudge match.

The surging lightweight superstars will collide in what promises to be the biggest fight of the year in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

The trash talk between the pair began flowing before they inked their contracts for the T-Mobile Arena tussle and recently spilled onto an Instagram Live with American YouTuber Kai Cenat.

And the pair didn't hold back with the pre-fight jibes, one of which was Davis claiming The Flash got stopped in sparring.

The Baltimore bruiser asked Garcia: "You didn’t get stopped in the gym?"

Social media superstar Garcia was quick to brush off the claim and responded with one of his own.

He asked: “Didn’t you get knocked out by a Russian dude in Floyd’s [Mayweather] gym?

"They say you got knocked out cold."

WBA (regular) lightweight champion Davis, 28, replied: "No."

Things got really tasty when the duo agreed to bet their ENTIRE purses on the fight.

Garcia replied by saying: "Let's do it the whole purse.

"You hear me on the live, let's go, let's make a contract, let's sign it, both of us."
