Gervonta Davis Reveals Location For Next Fight, Opponent To Be Announced

Davis seems to stand firm that he'll return in January.

Gervonta Davis continues to tease when and where he’ll be fighting next.  

Davis announced on Tuesday on Instagram – in a now-deleted post — that he will return to the ring in January in Washington D.C. The only thing missing now is an opponent. 

Last week, Boxing News 24 reported that Davis might face former three-division champion Abner Mares. But the undefeated boxer later denied the rumor replying, “[Your] source are sh–,” he wrote on Twitter. 

The more realistic opponent may be former interim lightweight champion Ryan Garcia, who Davis has been linked to have a grudge match since early this past summer.  

In late October, Garcia said that he agreed to a 136-pound catchweight bout in January against Davis. His promoter Oscar De La Hoya later said that both parties were closing in on a deal.  

There haven’t been any recent updates, but Boxing Scene reported that negotiations around who will have pay-per-view distribution rights of the fight might be the reason behind the hold up. 

Both Davis and Garcia are coming off of wins in their previous fights. Davis knocked out Rolando Romero in May and Garcia technically knocked out Javier Fortuna in July. 

Outside of the ring, Davis is facing a February 16 trial date for an alleged November 2020 hit-and-run incident.
