Gervonta Davis has posted a not-so cryptic message in relation to the next time fans might see him in the ring.
Amidst an ongoing will-they-won’t-they-fight drama with fellow lightweight contender, Ryan Garcia, ‘Tank’ has seemingly confirmed that he will step through the ropes in January in Washington DC.
Although the big puncher from Baltimore didn’t specify an exact date, Saturday 7th has been rumoured online.
Again, without an official venue confirmed, we can only assumed that he has his eyes on the Capital One Arena – over 20,000 capacity for basketball games played by the Washington Wizards.
The venue, although under a different name at the time, hosted Mike Tyson’s final professional fight in 2005, and has also provided a stage for both the WWE and UFC.
Davis, however, left out the more important detail of all – who he’ll be facing. Despite negotiations finally looking promising between his team and Garcia’s, the broadcast situation between the two leaves many fans more than sceptical.

Davis has been with Mayweather Promotions, who work with PBC on FOX. There have been some suggestions recently that the relationship has ended, however nothing has been confirmed. Garcia, on the other hand, is promoted by Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy, and his fights land on DAZN.
‘Tank’s last outing was in May – a sixth round knockout over Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero after a spicy build-up. It took him to 27 wins from the same number of fights, with all but two of them coming by stoppage.
At age 28, Davis will be looking to start making the career-defining fights he will want his campaign in the sport to be remembered for, and many feel like there’s no better place to start that with Garcia.
