Mayweather: Davis is Boxing’s Next Big Star

Floyd Mayweather is considered one of the biggest stars boxing has ever had, and he hopes his protege, Gervonta Davis, is on the same path.

Mayweather ended his career 50-0 with championship victories in five weight classes and was involved in the three most purchased events in boxing history. Davis, meanwhile, is 22-0 thus far and is a former two-time super featherweight champion.

Mayweather is also in a beef with 50 Cent, and the rapper recently brought Davis into the mix.

Now, Mayweather has not only come to the aid of his fighter, but he feels the best is yet to come for Davis.

“He’s an unbelievable fighter,” Mayweather said. “They can’t stop him. He’s the best at what he [does]. I’m behind him. I look at him like a son. I’ve been working with him for years now, and the only thing we’re going to do is keep racking up victories.”

Davis is scheduled to move up to lightweight and face Yurioksi Gamboa for the vacant WBA (Regular) lightweight championship on December 28. If he wins, Davis will look to capture another lightweight championship, though there’s a good chance Vasyl Lomachenko, who holds the WBA (Super), WBC and WBO titles could meet the winner of the upcoming IBF title fight between Richard Commey and Teofimo Lopez to determine an undisputed champion of the division.
