Garcia has been chasing a fight with Tank for years. 

"When he stops getting into trouble and starts making weight, we can get it on," the 22-year-old told TMZ in September 2018. 

Garcia and Davis are two of the most dominant lightweight stars in boxing. They have a combined 45-0 record with 41 knockouts. Garcia scored a seventh-round TKO over Luke Campbell to become the WBC interim lightweight champion. 

Davis, 26, last fought on Oct. 31 when he knocked out Leo Santa Cruz in the sixth round to retain the WBA lightweight title and win the WBA super featherweight title.
