Gervonta Davis is one of the hottest properties in boxing right now with no shortage of call outs from his rivals.
‘Tank’ is coming off a victory over Ryan Garcia back in April – the biggest commercial fight of the year, with reports suggesting the event brought in over 1 million pay-per-view buys.
Since then Davis has made more headlines for his actions out of the ring rather than in it, serving time in jail after breaking a house arrest order.
It’s not the first time ‘Tank’ has been in trouble with the law, and he seems to think only that has the potential to upset his superstardom.
When it was put to him that Devin Haney and Shakur Stevenson could have the beating of him, the Baltimore native was adamant the only person he has to worry about is himself.
“You got the last one right – that’s the only person that could beat me, Gervonta Davis. That’s the only person. Those others cannot touch me at all.
They’ve all been in the ring with me and I’ve cracked them both.
Devin Haney is no 50/50 fight, how you going to keep me off him when he’s got no power. I sparred him twice – the first time his father took him out the ring, I almost knocked him out in Floyd’s gym, did they tell you that?”
The Haney fight might have to wait with ‘The Dream’ making the move up to 140lbs, where it’s expected he’ll take on Regis Prograis for the WBC title. Stevenson has made no secret of his difficulties finding an opponent, but it now looks likely he’ll face Edwin De Los Santos for the vacant WBC lightweight belt.
As for Davis, he’s aiming to return before the end of the year, with a rematch with Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz being the current front-runner.
