Baltimore’s Davis (23-0, 22 KOs) appears headed for a fight with four-division champion Leo Santa Cruz (37-1-1, 19 KOs) in the spring, but Garcia and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, hope Davis wins and then decides to defend his WBA world lightweight title against Garcia later this year.
Davis responded this week on social media to De La Hoya’s recent call for a bout between him and Garcia to take place in 2020.
Davis defeated Fonseca by eighth-round knockout on the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor undercard in August 2017 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The emerging contender intends to defeat Fonseca more convincingly than Davis did in the main event of an eight-bout card DAZN will stream (7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT).
The heavy-handed Davis is the only opponent who has beaten Fonseca by knockout in his 29 professional fights, but there was a controversial conclusion when they fought.
In his second shot at that IBF junior lightweight championship, Philadelphia’s Farmer (30-5-1, 6 KOs, 1 NC) out-boxed Fonseca and won a 12-round unanimous decision in December 2018 at Madison Square Garden.
