Davis has now become a big deal at 140 lbs and even adjacent weight classes like 130, 135, and 150. With a win over previously undefeated Barrios, fans are now rooting for new and exciting matchups for Davis with elite boxers like Ryan Garcia, Josh Taylor, Teofimo Lopez, and Devin Haney.

However, Floyd Mayweather’s recent comments during Davis’ post-fight press conference might squander hopes for him to engage in cross-promotion matchups, at least for the time being.

We keep everything in-house. Mayweather Promotions/PBC. We’re not gonna go away and make another company great. We’ve got plenty at 140-130lbs. We’re gonna continue to fight the fighters that we’ve got to fight,said ‘Money’ Mayweather.

It seems Floyd has plans for Davis to continue fighting boxers at PBC and Mayweather Promotions over switching to other promotions and networks.

What is next for Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis?

In January 2021, Ryan Garcia surprised fans with a teaser for a mega-fight with Gervonta Davis; however, the buzz around this fight has since died down. With Davis’ recent win against Barrios, and with Ryan Garcia coming off a win against Luke Campbell, a potential matchup between the two undefeated champs at 135 lbs would be a perfect fit and a fan favorite.

Prior to the Barrios fight, Gervonta Davis appeared on the Last Stand Podcast and shot down the idea of a matchup with Garcia.

I mean, he’s somebody who thinks he runs something and he don’t run nothing, that’s basically what it was. He thinks he runs the show, and we showed him he doesn’t run nothing, even on his side,said Davis.
