Gervonta Davis put on a proper show when he fought Liam Smith at the Copper Box back in May. After dismantling Smith in the opening rounds, ‘Tank’ is now after his next foe.
The American knockout machine has issued a challenge against Tevin Farmer and Davis is also willing to put £80 000 on himself. Call that a safe bet?
Davis says that he wants to fight on the same card as his mentor, Floyd Mayweather when he takes on Conor McGregor.
Farmer (25-4-1) is a fellow super featherweight although he is a bit more experienced than Davis. But like ‘Tank’ wrote – winner gets Billy ‘The Kid’ Dib (42-4) who is number three on IBF’s rankings.
Yesterday it was revealed that a date, 26th of August, at the MGM Grand has been booked by Mayweather Promotions. It’s believed that is the official fight night for Mayweather vs McGregor.
