‘Nothing Lasts Forever’: Floyd Mayweather Hints At Possibly Parting Ways With Gervonta Davis
The team up between Floyd Mayweather and Gervonta Davis might see its end in the coming months as the ‘Money’ signaled that the two parties can part their ways.
In a recent interview with FightHype, Mayweather commented on the rumors of a possible split with the lightweight prodigy, Davis.
“Nothing lasts forever,” Mayweather said.
“He has to do what’s best for him.”
Davis (26-0, 24 KO’s) had been accused of avoiding big names in the lightweight division.
Perhaps, his only major accomplishment came against Leo Santa Cruz where he bombarded the Mexican with some slick shots to end the fight in the sixth round. ‘Tank’ went toe-to-toe against Santa Cruz and proved to be too strong for him.
The bout was later nominated for Fight of the Year.
The reigning WBA, IBF, WBO, and The Ring lightweight champion George Kambosos Jr. also took a dig at Davis and remarked that ‘Tank’ has no big name to show on his resume.
“I’d love to fight Gervonta Davis,” Kambosos said last week. “But he ain’t going to fight in Australia (Kambosos homeland)…maybe after I kick his a– in his hometown as well.”
The Australian went on to ridicule Davis’ May 28th PPV opponent Rolando Romero.
“That’s not a big fight at all,” Kambosos argued. “The other guy, I’m not even sure who he is… Tank will destroy him and you’ll never hear of this kid again.”
Meanwhile, Mayweather weighed completely opposite regarding Davis’s upcoming bout against Romero.
“Two heavy hitters,” he told FightHype.
“Of course Tank has more experience at this level…but Rolly, he talks a good game, but he also fights a good game because he’s undefeated.”
Davis also had mixed reactions to his upcoming fight against Romero.
“My contract is up, that’s why they want me to fight this clown so bad,” he posted in a tweet that has since been deleted.
But despite the current state of affairs, Mayweather has no hard feelings for the ‘Tank’ and is proud of what he was able to achieve with him.
“I will always love Tank. I like him (and look at him like a son),” said Mayweather.
“I feel like I’ve done a great job thus far just building him and putting him in great fights and he’s steady growing, he’s steady learning and I’m proud of him.”
