Gervonta Davis Wants Lomachenko Next
Gervonta Davis is adding his name to the list of fighters who call “next,” on a fight with Vasyl Lomachenko.
Davis claimed a piece of the featherweight crown on April 21st with a third round knockout of Jesus Cuellar, beocming the WBA’s “Super” featherweight champion, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The man who promotes and mentor’s the “tank,” Floyd Mayweather, claimed he’d position his charge for a fight with Lomachenko if he beat Cuellar.
“If Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis win that fight [against Cuellar], I already spoke to Todd duBoef from Top Rank,” Mayweather told Showtime’s Jim Gray just two weeks prior to the fight.
“We look forward to Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis fighting Lomachenko after this fight. We know ‘Tank’ fights in April. Lomachenko fights in May. I already spoke to Top Rank, Todd duBoef, and we’re gonna make that fight happen between Lomachenko and Gervonta Davis.”
Before Lomachenko can consider an offer from Davis, or even Manny Pacquiao, who wanted a crack at the title, he must first fight Jorge Linares on May 12th for the WBA lightweight title.
