Farmer Calls Out Gervonta Davis
After ending the career of Billy Dib on Friday, Tevin Farmer has decided to set his focus on Gervonta Davis.
A fight that has been beset by Farmer being shot in the arm in the summer of 2017, and his split-decision loss to Kenichi Ogawa, now seems a bit clearer after Farmer walked out with the IBF super featherweight title.
“We’re gonna say this like this – so, you know, nobody wanted to give me a shot,” Farmer said following his ninth round stoppage.
“Everybody was ducking me and ducking me and ducking me and not wanting to give me an opportunity. I had to kick the door in. So now, I got the belt and everybody wanna start screaming my name. And I’m gonna say it like this – no more talking. Send the f***ing contract and the money on the table and we can make it happen.”
The feeling is mutual for both fighters, as the WBA super featherweight title holder is looking at either a fight with Farmer or moving up to lightweight.
“If Tevin don’t want to fight I’m going up,” Davis stated in a Tweet sent out a few hours before Farmer fought Friday. “It’s time to show I’m the best. I’m not saying this for my health.”
Davis laid waste to Jesus Ceullar earlier this year, in a third round TKO stoppage in April at the Barclays Center to take the then vacant WBA crown.
