Having cemented his place as one of the biggest names in boxing, there are few fights involving Gervonta Davis that would not be considered mega fights by all modern definitions.
However, there is a fighter with whom Davis shares a long history that would be an opponent more enticing than most others.
Davis and two-weight world champion Teofimo Lopez have known each other since they were little more than children making their way through the American amateur ranks and, now both in their 20s, are both regarded as amongst the best fighters in the entire sport.
And when ‘Tank’s trainer Calvin Ford was asked about a possible bout between his charge and Lopez, he assured Mill City Boxing that it would definitely happen “one day.”
“That fight [Davis vs Lopez] is going to happen one day, because of the background they have with each other.”
“We’ve seen them spar each other when they were amateurs and what not. That’s going to be a good fight one day.”
“I think when they get to a point when all the smoke has cleared with all these other guys. I’m hoping Teofimo will hold that 140 spot, and ‘Tank’ will hold his spot.”
“These great moments that we’re seeing in boxing are going to continue, because you’ve got to remember these guys are older than the guys coming up underneath them.”
Both Davis and Lopez’ reputations are perhaps at an all time high currently, after coming off impressive wins earlier this year against Ryan Garcia and Josh Taylor respectively.
However, as always seem to be the case with the fights fans want most, there are are host of promoter and broadcasting issues that will need to be worked out if they two are ever to share a professional ring.
