Oscar De La Hoya Urges Gervonta Davis Unify or Waste Potential?

Oscar De La Hoya, the renowned promoter, is calling on Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis to break free from lackluster opposition and step up to the challenge of unifying the lightweight division. Expressing concern over Tank’s career trajectory, De La Hoya urges the WBA secondary lightweight champion to move beyond collecting titles against subpar opponents and venture into the realm of true champions.

De La Hoya’s critique focuses on Tank’s reluctance to unify against the top talents in the 135-pound division, emphasizing the need for clashes with fighters like Shakur Stevenson and the emerging titleholder after Devin Haney vacates his IBF, WBA, and WBO lightweight titles. Highlighting Tank’s recent bout against influencer Ryan Garcia as a notable event, De La Hoya underscores the necessity for Tank to transition from paper titles to genuine championship contests.

Expressing disappointment in Tank’s career path resembling that of Adrien Broner, De La Hoya stresses the importance of pursuing mega-fights against genuine contenders such as Vasily Lomachenko, Devin Haney, Shakur, and Teofimo Lopez. Despite Tank’s considerable talent, his current focus on less challenging opponents seems to disappoint De La Hoya.

De La Hoya draws parallels between Tank’s career trajectory and the potential earnings left untapped due to safe matchmaking by Mayweather Promotions. Encouraging Tank to break free from the confines of controlled matchmaking, De La Hoya suggests that facing the best in the 135 and 140-pound divisions, commencing with a clash against Shakur Stevenson, could define Tank’s legacy.

While acknowledging Tank’s prowess as a fighter, De La Hoya emphasizes the need for him to test his mettle against the best in the division, hinting at Tank’s upcoming rematch with Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz as an example of stunted potential.

The former six-division world champion De La Hoya remains hopeful that Tank will strive for greater challenges and face the top contenders, reiterating his belief in Tank’s capabilities as a remarkable fighter.
