Ford And Davis Following Mayweather Blueprint
In less than two months, Gervonta Davis has fought as many fights in 2019 as he did in 2018, but both Davis and Leonard Ellerbe expect the Baltimore native to be more active this year.
With the potential of a rescheduled fight with Abner Mares and promoter Floyd Mayweather mentioning a potential exhibition with kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa and a return in May. With or without the Nasukawa exhibition Davis will end up fighting three more times in 2019.
“Well if you look at Floyd’s career we are doing the same blueprint that they did. Whatever person that the sanctioning body or the public wants us to fight is who we are going to fight if it makes sense,” Davis’ trainer Calvin Ford stated.
“No (it didn’t effect us) because we prepare for anything that can happen but it hurt us because we were looking forward to that fight. We were really looking forward to it and I hope Mares gets well soon and will be able to continue his career. My prayers go out to him that he has a speedy recovery,” Ford said of making the adjustment from the injured Mares to last second replacement, Ruiz
