TMZ Sports reported Friday that Gervonta Davis will compete in the co-main event of the Aug. 26 card Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor headline.
While Davis' opponent has yet to be determined, the 22-year-old rising star said it has been narrowed down to two possibilities.
Davis is a perfect 18-0 with 17 knockouts, including a third-round decimation of Brit Liam Walsh in May to retain the IBF junior lightweight title.
The Baltimore native fights under the Mayweather Promotions umbrella.
Mayweatherpromotions.com notes this on Davis:
"In early 2014, Gervonta Davis signed with boxing manager/advisor Al Haymon. In June of 2015, Davis met Floyd Mayweather during one of Adrien Broner's training camps. Later that year, he went on to sign with Mayweather Promotions...
"... In the future, Davis hopes to capture world titles and make millions of dollars inside the boxing ring so that he can achieve financial stability through business deals outside the ring that will enable him to take care of his family and motivate young people from similar backgrounds to believe in their dreams."
Per TMZ, "Gervonta says he's been training his ass off with Floyd and says he's confident he can knock out McGregor, too!"view original article >>
