Gervonta Davis Wants To Fight Again This Year, Says Showtime’s Stephen Espinosa



Gervonta Davis Wants To Fight Again This Year, Says Showtime's Stephen Espinosa

Showtime boss, Stephen Espinosa revealed that Gervonta “Tank” Davis wants to fight again this year against an unspecified opponent.

Espinosa said Tank (29-0, 27 KOs) still has some community service work to do after he gets out of jail, but then; He really wants to get back in the ring to fight.

Regarding rumors that Gervonta would fight either Chris Colbert or Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz next, Espinoza said it was “a bit early” to talk about Tank fighting any of those next.

Tank has a lot of options for his next battle, you just have to choose the most realistic and meaningful one. Gervonta must be realistic

It’s important that Gervonta understands the fact that he probably won’t be in the big fight he just had against Ryan Garcia.

If Gervonta screws up after making tens of millions of dollars from his match with Ryan, he can refuse matches offered by his management. We see that a lot with fighters.

Once they get a huge amount in a fight, they always insist on getting the same thing, which is impossible. It usually happens that a corrupt fighter sits idle for a long time, waiting for the day to make a lot of money instead of continuing to work.

Will this happen to Tank Davis? Maybe it wasn’t realistic.
The options are open to Davis

“I think it’s a little early. I heard Colbert say maybe 130 or so

Maybe 135, Showtime’s Stephen Espinosa told Fighthype about who will fight Gervonta Davis next, so nothing has been decided yet.

“Tank just got out of the hospital, and he’s just starting to get back in the gym. I look forward to seeing him this weekend.

“I would expect him to join the fray, but we haven’t gotten into those discussions yet, so it’s all open minded. All bets are available. All battles are available. Isaac Cruz’s ability to tank

“I think it’s a choice,” said Espinosa, “and I think it’s an interesting choice because of Isaac [Cruise’s] style and the fact that none of these guys were completely satisfied with how the first fight went.” Cruz is excluded.

There is potential for Gervonta Davis’ next fight if Pitbull wins his bout on Saturday night against Giovanni Cabrera.

For Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz to continue to be a viable pick in Tank’s next fight, he’ll need to beat Cabrera on Saturday night.

Will Pitbull win? Maybe, but he either loses or Cabrera looks down on him. “Isaac thought he missed an opportunity he could have taken,” Espinosa said. “Tank feels uncomfortable because of his [injured] hand.”

Boxing fans argue that Isaac Cruz didn’t deserve a rematch against Tank Davis because he played it safe, picking on a weak opponent since that match, and making sure he wouldn’t lose.

Pitbull Cruz refused to fight against Shakur Stephenson and Ryan Garcia. Instead, Cruz fought Eduardo Ramirez and Yuriorkes Gamboa.

“I’d love to watch that match again,” said Espinosa. “It doesn’t mean it has to be the next match.”

“A lot of people talk about Tank coming in and Isaac playing this card [Errol Spence Jr. against Terrence Crawford on Saturday], and they’re trying to connect the dots.

“It’s not really that simple. He [Pitbull Cruz] is definitely [Tank Davis’ choice], but there are so many others we can think of,” said Espinosa.

The reason is that Isaac Cruz is a strong choice for Jerventa that he will bring many fans to see revenge, and most importantly, it is not a threat to his defeat.

If Tank wants a greater battle, he can face Shakor Stephenon, Divin Hani or Frank Martin, but it will be difficult for him. Tank’s record confirmed that battles were risk-free, and that he was unlikely to change.

Tanks want to fight again this year

“Tank loves it, and he’s very determined,” Espinosa said of whether Gerfonta would rematch this year. “He has a bit of community service to take care of. If he can get back into fighting form and all the details, then certainly the end of this year or the beginning of next is very possible.

“If it’s up to Tank, he’ll be back in the ring as soon as possible. There have been preliminary discussions. Espinosa asked if there was any talk between Gervonta and Devin Haney about the war.

Hani is in the middle of it all. He has a lot of opportunities. With the new tank out, Hani immediately has a number of opportunities he needs to seize.

From my point of view, I don’t think there’s a realistic chance of Tank talking when you [Haney] have two mandatory [Shakur Stephenson and Regis Progress] hanging out.

“That’s the thought anyway,” Espinosa said of Haney potentially going 140 to challenge the upcoming WBC Prograis champion. So Tank will probably be at his best at 135 and probably will be there unless given another chance.

“If I asked Tank, he’d say, ‘Give me all these people.'” Give me [Isaac] Cruz, give me Honey and whoever else nights in a row. it is him. The rest of us have to get a little more realistic about all the other business considerations and what realistic wars are to do, who is obligated to do that and such.
