Who Will Be The Tank’s Next Target?

FightersTalkTV.com – After being called up by Ryan Garcia in his latest fight against Javier Fortuna, Gervonta Davis is still silent. Tank just reply a short but simple response on his social media, “See y’all the end of the year..#TheONE”. His statement raises questions among boxing fans and observers, which have to patiently await some Davis’s next fight news. The undefeated lightweight star will likely return sometime this fall and there are endless big fight options for the WBA lightweight champion.

Gervonta Davis knocked out Rolly Romero in sixth-round in Atlanta last May.

Gervonta Davis (27-0, 25 KOs) isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but it’s hard to ignore what he can do in a boxing ring. The 27-year-old currently holds the WBA (Regular) lightweight title and in his last fight, he settled the score with foe Rolando Romero in Brooklyn. Romero was doing some nice work throughout the early stages of the contest but ultimately, it was ‘Tank’ who landed the final blow in the form of a devastating TKO that showed the masses exactly what he’s capable of.

Last year, Davis competed at junior welterweight in June 2021, when he knocked out Mario Barrios for the WBA ‘regular’ title, but then dropped down to 135 in the aftermath.

With the backing of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Davis has become one of the top young fighters in the sport. He is an elite talent at lightweight, a champion, and is becoming one of the more notable brands in the fight game. Although, the Baltimore’s rise to fame has had some notable bumps in the road.

The kid from Maryland has had several run-ins with the law, including arrests for punching a friend in 2017, a domestic altercation with his girlfriend in 2020, and several charges for a hit-and-run in 2021. He has not served any jail time thus far.

He also has had issues making weight during his career. He was stripped of the IBF junior lightweight title in 2017 for being overweight by two pounds and then lost the opportunity to win the lightweight belt in 2019 when he was 1.5 pounds of the limit for a title bout against Yuriorkis Gamboa.

However, ‘Tank’ has been more like a run-away train over of his career, with his wins to knockouts ratio is 27/25. He has become one of the sport’s brightest young stars and has the resume and brand value to deserve a fight with the biggest names in the division. That is why matchups with Ryan Garcia, Devin Haney. or George Kambosos Jr. make sense next.

VS KingRy
Davis and Garcia have seemed on a collision course for several years, and Garcia once again called for a matchup following his July win over Javier Fortuna. Unless a unification bout with Haney is made, Davis vs Garcia is probably the next biggest fight to book at lightweight.

VS The Dream

Devin Haney is most boxing observer’s #1 fighter at lightweight. He is the man with the biggest target on his chest and would make a lot of sense next for Davis. However, boxing is notorious for not making obvious fights happen so “Tank” can’t get his hopes up on that one.

VS The Aussie

George Kambosos was the “it” guy at lightweight following his victory over Teofimo Lopez in 2021. “Ferocious” loss this year to Haney stopped much of the momentum but he still remains a top name in the division. If bouts with Haney or Garcia can’t be made next a scrap with the Australian would be a strong plan C.

There are many possibilities ahead for Gervonta Davis, but the most likely scenario sees him getting matched up with Ryan Garcia or Devin Haney next.
