Gervonta Davis cemented his status as one of boxing’s biggest stars earlier this year, when he stopped Ryan Garcia in seven rounds in their mega fight at the T-Mobile Arena.
However, there is a view amongst some that Davis’ resume and silverware collection somewhat trails behind his star power.
Though he is often marketed as a three weight world champion, the Baltimore star has only picked up regular titles at lightweight and super lightweight, with his major honours only coming at super featherweight.
And in recent interview, pound for pound king Terence Crawford called into question ‘Tank’s standing as a “champ.”
“He’s a champ? What champ? What belts? Come on man, tell me what belt? You forgot Devin Haney is undisputed? Devin Haney got all the belts, he’s the champ.
‘Tank’ is the biggest draw, but Haney is the champ.”
Animosity has slowly began to fester between Crawford and Davis over recent months, after the latter claimed he would quickly stop ‘Bud’ in the aftermath of his undisputed welterweight world title win over Errol Spence Jr back in July.
As one could imagine, the Nebraska man did not take that claim well, and implored Davis to come up to welterweight for an all American blockbuster.
However, as enticing as a match up between Davis and Crawford would be for fight fans, it is one that falls into the extremely unlikely category.
Crawford is set to rematch old foe Spence after the Texan activated a contractual rematch clause last month, whereas Davis next move is unclear after being recently released from a brief stint in prison.
