During a press conference held on Wednesday, Ryan Garcia announced that there is a rehydration clause in his contract for his highly anticipated fight against Gervonta Davis.

The clause stipulates that Garcia cannot weigh more than 146 pounds when he enters the ring, 10 pounds more than their contracted catch weight of 136.

Despite the clause, Garcia believes it will not hinder his performance on fight night as he does not usually gain much weight after weigh-ins.

Garcia, who stands at 5-foot-10, agreed to come down near the lightweight limit of 135 pounds to face Davis, who stands at 5-foot-6.

Davis has fought at the junior welterweight limit of 140 pounds but has been competing within the lightweight division for his past three fights.

Garcia's promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, downplayed the rehydration clause and expressed confidence in both fighters' ability to make weight.

Garcia hasn't had to drop this low in weight in more than two years, with his last official weigh-in at 135 pounds for his seventh-round stoppage of British southpaw Luke Campbell in January 2021.

Davis and Garcia are set to participate in another press conference on Thursday, which will be streamed live on Showtime Sports' YouTube channel.

The highly anticipated fight is scheduled for April 22 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will be broadcast on Showtime Pay-Per-View.
