RYAN GARCIA has accused a mole of LEAKING news of a pre-fight injury to Gervonta Davis ahead of their lightweight showdown.
The social media superstar’s surge up the 135lbs ranks was stopped in its tracks by the undefeated Davis last Sunday morning.
Garcia was stopped in the seventh round of the Sin City showdown courtesy of a stomach-busting liver punch, which left him doubled over in pain.
Throughout fight week, Baltimore bruiser Davis claimed he’d received inside information that Garcia had been injured to the body in sparring – which has since turned out to be true.
King Ryan wrote in an Instagram story: “Actually sad I had a mole in my camp.
“Like WTF that’s crazy but thank god it’s brought to light now.”
Garcia, however, was quick to insist the leaking of his injury to Team Davis had no bearing on the outcome of the fight.
He added: “Also didn’t mean that to come off as an excuse or anything.
“I lost, period. I’ll come back but I’m just shocked that part of my team crossed me, someone, close to me.
“But it’s a testimony that you must be aware of anyone.”
Prior to the fight, Davis was asked if he thought he could hurt Garcia to the body.
Tank said: “He got hurt to the body before. He thinks I don’t know that. It wasn’t in no fight.
“Ask him. Let him know that I know he got hurt to the body. Word gets around real fast.”
Not long after Garcia’s confirmation of a spy in his camp, sparring partner Erdenebat Tsendbaatar revealed he hurt the American in training.
In an Instagram video, he said: “Hey King Ryan, in sparring I injured you with a body shot.
“Now you lost to Tank. I am sorry. Are you okay?”
But the 5-0 Tsendbaatar was quick to deny being the mole, saying: “Who is [the] mole?
“What are you talking about? I am not [the] mole. I don’t even speak English.
“I don’t even like Tank, I will fight him and KO him in the future.
“During our sparring, I tried to help you and sparred Tank’s style of boxing. I was cheering for you to win against Tank.
“You are [a] great boxer, but next time try to learn from sparring and hopefully you will not get hit by the same punch during the fight.
“Good luck to you and God bless.”
Garcia has vowed to bounce back from his crushing defeat to Davis, the first of Garcia’s 24-fight career.
He said: “I’m already looking past it. “You know, it’s all good.
“Lost today, but ready to get back into it whenever I can, which is in like three months.
“So from that, get right back into it.”
