Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis has built a reputation in the sport of boxing as one of the most feared punchers and efficient operators.
The Baltimore native has 27 knockouts from 29 wins, the latest of which was a career-best over Ryan Garcia.
The seventh round body shot stoppage cemented ‘Tank’s status as one of boxing’s megastars, and further proved his worth at the very top level.
His undefeated record is under fire from lightweight rival, Shakur Stevenson, though. The 26-year-old from Newark recently branded a fight with Davis as the biggest out there for him.
Earlier this year, he vowed to ‘expose’ Davis, believing beating him over the distance would ‘mess with his heart.’
“He fighting pay-per-view knocking these dudes out. That don’t take away the fact that I can beat this dude. That dude get to feeling himself and feeling like he’s something that he not. To the world he look like a killer, but I can’t wait – I’m gonna expose him, I promise you. Watch.
I’m gonna be the person that expose him. I’m gonna be the person he go in there and he not gonna knock out. He gotta go twelve rounds with somebody beating him. He ain’t gonna like that s**t. That gonna mess with his heart, f**k with his head. Watch.”
A fight between the two 135lbers is high on the lists of boxing fans, but won’t be happening this year.
Stevenson is set to fight for the vacant WBC title in November against fellow undefeated southpaw, Frank Martin, whilst Davis eyes a ring return a little later, potentially against Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz.
