BOXING legend Oscar De La Hoya says he will offer Gervonta Davis “multi-millions of dollars” to fight Ryan Garcia.
Tank, 27, left Floyd Mayweather’s promotional team after retaining his WBA title last month against Rolando Romero.

Davis is therefore open to offers on his next fight – and eleven-time world champion De La Hoya thinks ‘KingRy’ Garcia is the perfect opposition.
He’s willing to offer Davis the biggest payday of his career in a bid to tempt the lightweight champ into the ring.
De La Hoya told TMZ: “Tank, I know you had your last fight with Floyd Mayweather, and I respect Floyd Mayweather, and think he did a tremendous job with your career.
“But, I’m ready to offer you a multi, multi, multi, multi million-dollar offer to fight Ryan Garcia.

“It’ll be the biggest purse that Tank Davis has ever made.
“We’re ready and willing to split broadcasters, meaning we can have this fight on Showtime PPV and The Zone PPV.
“Let’s make this fight happen.
“Everyone makes a s***load of money and we give the fight fans what they want to see.”
Both fighters and currently unbeaten, with Davis holding the WBA lightweight title for over two years.
Garcia is a rising star in the division and the 23-year-old looked the business as he beat Emmanuel Tagoe in April after an extended break to protect his mental health.
A super fight between the pair could only happen after Garcia has faced Javier Fortuna, who he faces in LA on July 16.
De La Hoya is confident this is a showdown boxing fans are prepared to wait for – but did admit it would be easier if Tank was under his wing at Golden Boy.
He continued: “If Tank Davis was under Golden Boy Promotions, this fight would be easy to make.
“When you have to deal with other broadcasters, other promoters, it makes things a little difficult.
“But since Golden Boy is easy to work with, since Ryan Garcia really wants this fight, I see this fight happening relatively soon.”
Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn has admitted he’d “love” to add Davis to his ever-growing stable.
While Mayweather failed to attend Tank’s fight with Romero after a “family emergency”.
Davis dominated the New York battle, wrecking Rollie with a devastating left hand KO.
