Gervonta “Tank” Davis has garnered the attention of boxing fans all around the world with his explosive punching power and impressive hand speed. Tank has been a world champion in three weight classes already being aided by his quick feet and ability to throw lethal combinations.
Due to his aggressive and offensive-minded fighting style, and his ability to end fights with one clean shot, Davis is considered a star who might rule PPV charts in the coming decade. Hence, there is always curiosity related to his upcoming fights. So, who will Gervonta Davis fight next?
Gervonta Davis Next Fight
At this point, Gervonta Davis has a few options for his next fight. Davis is out of jail after serving 45 days and has started to train again. Davis is coming off the biggest win of his career as he defeated Ryan Garcia via knockout in the seventh round to headline a PPV event which had more than 1.2 million buys. To continue with his high-profile status, there are a number of possibilities for Davis’ next fight.
Devin Haney, Shakur Stevenson, Vasiliy Lomachenko and Isaac Cruz are some of the names that come up in discussion as Davis’ next opponent. PBC’s Stephen Espinoza discussed the options for his next fight. The first option Espinoza discussed was against Interim Featherweight Champion Chris Colbert, but called it premature speculations at this point.
Gervonta Davis’ trainer Calvin Ford earlier revealed that Gervonta Davis wants to fight Davin Haney next for his undisputed lightweight titles. However, Haney is now looking for a fight in super lightweight division. Espinoza has termed Haney vs Davis unrealistic at this point. Calvin Ford later revealed that Davis wants Isaac Cruz next for a rematch. Cruz is the only boxer so far to survive 12 rounds against Davis when they first fought in December 2021.
Shakur Stevenson is expect to fight for WBC Lightweight Title next in November 2023. But, it is likely that Davis will not be his opponent.
