Is Gervonta Davis Retiring Soon?
He is scheduled to fight on January 7.
Gervonta Davis said he won’t be in the sport much longer.
Davis is scheduled to face Hector Luis Garcia in a tune-up fight on January 7 in Washington D.C. And if things go how he wants, he will then face Ryan Garcia in a grudge match, which is projected for April.
The only obstacle that stands in the way of his anticipated matchup against “King Ryan” is his court trial for an alleged misdemeanor motor vehicle violations from a November 2020 hit-and-run incident. He is due in the courtroom on February 16.
Other than that, Davis has his eyes set on Luis Garcia, Garcia and even undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney and division newcomer Shakur Stevenson, a former two-belt super featherweight titleholder.
“I ain’t gonna lie, I ain’t really trying to be in this too much longer,” said Davis on Morning Kombat.
“Once I get them guys out of here, I’m gone.”
Haney is tied up with working out a date with pound-for-pound boxer Vasiliy Lomachenko and Stevenson is searching for an opponent after Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz seems to have backed down from the ordered fight.
Still, Haney and Stevenson have found time to engage Davis in verbal jabs on social media.
But while Davis believes he’s one of the top guys in the sport, he said he’d prefer to spend his time setting up for more upcoming fighters.
“I wanna just help people that’s coming behind me, the future.”
