Mayweather Touts Davis As A Future PPV Star
Gervonta Davis and Floyd Mayweather’s once rocky relationship seems to have subsided, as the former world champion claimed Davis can be the biggest fighter in the sport.
Citing the attendance of Drake, Lil’ Wayne, Meek Mill, as well as NFL stars Odell Beckham Jr. and Antonio Brown at Davis’ first-round drubbing of Hugo Ruiz at Dignity Health Sports Park on Saturday night, Mayweather feels Davis is on the road to superstardom.
“I’m extremely proud of Tank,” Mayweather said.
“No matter what, he’s young – he’s gonna go through things. My thing is this, and I told him … I want him to focus more on raising his [7-month-old] daughter and working hard in the gym, surpassing me. The ultimate goal – if any fighter can surpass me, it’s this young man right here, which I truly believe. He’s gonna be a household name. He’s gonna be a pay-per-view star. He’s gotta stay on the right path, though, and he has to listen because out of all the fighters in boxing right now, I’m the only one that knows what it takes to become that household name and to make nine figures in one night.”
