As a world champion now, Gervonta Davis can’t afford to go against his everyday diet plan. From maintaining his weight to keeping an eye on other attributes, Davis’ food habits play an important role in his daily routine. Meanwhile, the 26-year-old has made a solid transition, when it comes to his diet. While earlier he was eating anything, ‘Tank’ now reportedly has a specific chef, who is aware of the boxer’s whole diet chart.

Gervonta Davis- ‘Tank’ and his fuel

The American knockout machine spoke with Fight Hub TV and talked about several things, including his food habits. As he shed light on having a private chef, Davis apparently has a three-meal diet plan on his fight date. Gervonta Davis consumes a meal after the weigh-in, followed by another meal on the morning of his fight. Then he takes another one right after the in-ring scrap ends.

Interestingly, all those meals remain light to keep a proper frame of Davis’ weight. But the scenario was quite different in the past. The world champion revealed to eating junk food when he was yet to reach the absolute top. Without any knowledge of weight-cut, Gervonta Davis admitted eating chicken, fries, and slushies on fight weeks in the bygone days.

The scenario has changed drastically now. Davis is a professional elite and reflects the stature even by his outer-ring stances. From flashy social media accounts to showcasing his intense training, ‘Tank’ is now a PPV star from the Mayweather Promotions. He already has over eight years’ old experience as a professional pugilist and has several more years to come. That said, Davis can only become even bigger in the near future.

Do you think Gervonta Davis will go down as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters of the era?
