Gervonta Davis Clarifies Confirms He Parted With Mayweather Promotions
He fights on January 7 in Washington D.C.
Gervonta Davis has clarified that there is no rift between him and the Mayweather Promotion, but he will no longer be fighting under the promotion again.
Davis (27-0, 25 KOs) got his last fight under Mayweather Promotions against Roland Romero, who is also represented under the same banner.
After the Romero fight, Davis completed his contract with the promotion. He has now affirmed that he will no longer continue with Mayweather.
There have been reports of a possible rift between the fighter and the promotion, but both Davis and the company CEO have denied it.
Davis, who is currently in training camp for his upcoming fight against Hector Garcia, has tweeted: “First and foremost, love to Mayweather Promotions and all that they have done for me, but I am definitely out of my contract, for sure.”
The 28-year-old undefeated star went deep into his plans when he ran into a bunch of reporters at the Capital One Arena.
“It’s just a test run right now with this, you know what I mean. I’m on my own. But much love to Mayweather Promotions, Leonard, Floyd, all them guys. I definitely appreciate them. I’m just doing my own thing now,” Davis explained.
“That said in the future, we can’t work together or anything like that. I’m just trying to put my own pants on. Floyd is out doing him. He’s always been like that. You know what I mean? I have to focus on what I can focus on. He already did what he had to do. I ain’t going to lie. If I did what he did in the sport, I’d be the same way. I don’t fault him for staying to himself.”
The Baltimore native reiterated that there’s nothing but love between him and Floyd Mayweather.
“But it’s also a type of thing like, come back and help too. But much love to Mayweather Promotions. It’s no bad blood type sh!t. A lot of people think when I’m tweeting I’m mad. But I’m just talking – talking sh!t. I’m tweeting because I’m in camp. I’m angry. If I wasn’t in camp, I wouldn’t be tweeting.”
