Gervonta Davis has offered some stark advice to one of his rivals, who he claims would be better served training fighters rather than stepping into the ring himself.
Davis emerged with a victory in the biggest fight of his career thus far back in April, when he stopped Ryan Garcia in the seventh round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
And it was actually Garcia whom ‘Tank’ was discussing in a feature with Complex, when he said the following:
“He [Garcia] shouldn’t be a boxer, I don’t think so. I started watching his interviews and trying to get to know him as a person, and I just don’t see it.
Boxing on Instagram is probably cool for him, but not an actual fighter. He shouldn’t train people or something like that, I don’t see it for him.”
It must be noted, Davis’ comments came in the build up to the April 22nd clash, so they can perhaps at least partly be attributed to wanting to get inside Garcia’s head.
Davis’ win over Garcia took his record to an impressive 29-0, with a whopping 27 of those victories coming inside the distance, cementing his reputation as one of the hardest punchers in the entire sport, pound for pound.
Despite his in ring success, Davis is also unfortunately just as well known for his antics away from boxing, which have once again put his career on hold.
The Baltimorean is currently serving jail time for breaking a 90 day home detention order, and is thus unlikely to be in action before winter of this year.
