2023’s boxing schedule is kicking off with a bang tonight as Hector Luis Garcia looks to snag the WBA lightweight belt from Gervonta “Tank” Davis.
It’s an exciting fight on its own, with Davis being one of the world’s best boxers and Garcia hoping to maintain an undefeated record, but it also plays a role in a massive fight scheduled for later this year: Davis vs. Ryan Garcia. Should Hector Garcia beat the odds (which he did twice in a row last year) and successfully defend his belt from superstar Davis, that much-anticipated matchup could be derailed.
Needless to say, all boxing fans should be tuning in to Davis vs. Garcia tonight. Below, we’ve outlined how to watch Davis vs. Garcia online, including where to buy the Davis vs. Garcia PPV live stream, plus details on the fight’s start time, odds, and undercard.

When is Davis vs. Garcia? Date, Time, Location
Davis vs. Garcia is happening tonight, Saturday, Jan. 7 at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT. Davis and Garcia’s ringwalks should take place around 12 a.m. ET / 9 p.m. PT.
Davis vs. Garcia Odds, Undercard
As one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world and easily the best lightweight fighter, Gervonta Davis has unsurprisingly been pegged as a heavy favorite for tonight’s event. Oddsmakers have given the Tank moneyline odds of -1450 against Hector Luis Garcia’s +770.
Over his decade-long career, Davis has racked up five titles in three weight classes, winning all 27 of his professional bouts. Tank also boasts one of the highest knockout-to-win ratios in the sport with 25 KOs. Tonight’s fight will see Davis defending his WBA (Regular) lightweight title for the third time since winning it in June of 2021 from Mario Barrios.
But, despite Davis’ prowess, he could very well have difficulties keeping Hector Garcia at bay. The 31-year-old Dominican boxer is also undefeated (16-0-3 with 10 KOs), and he currently holds the WBA super featherweight title, which he took in an upset win against Roger Gutierrez in August of last year. Before beating Gutierrez, “The Android” took down Chris Colbert — also as the underdog.
“Davis in my opinion is a top pound-for-pound fighter and one of the biggest punchers in boxing, so I know going into this fight that I’m an underdog,” said Garcia. “Not a lot of people are giving me a chance in this fight, but that’s what motivates me. I was in the same situation going into the Colbert fight, but this time I had a real training camp.”
Of course, Davis and Garcia aren’t the only fighters getting in the ring tonight. Here’s the full Davis vs. Garcia fight card happening tonight:
Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis vs. Hector Luis Garcia — Lightweight
Jaron Ennis vs. Karen Chukhadzhian — Welterweight
Rashidi Ellis vs. Roiman Villa — Welterweight
Demetrius Andrade vs. Demond Nicholson — Super Middleweight
When is Ryan Garcia vs. Gervonta Davis?
As mentioned, tonight’s fight precedes the long-awaited mega-matchup of Davis vs. Ryan Garcia. That fight is slated to happen on April 15, and, should Davis win tonight, it’ll be one of the biggest fights of the year.
Ryan Garcia has shot to stardom in the last several years, winning 23 professional bouts and losing none. For the last two years or so, Garcia and Davis traded barbs on social media but weren’t able to finalize a fight until November of last year.
