Floyd Mayweather has announced his return against Logan Paul in a special exhibition fight on February 20, 2021. That said, Mayweather’s prime prodigy Gervonta Davis also wants to fight in the event’s undercard.

The WBA two-division champion is still fresh from his KO win over Leo Santa Cruz. But, he doesn’t have a match lined up for him. So, Davis doesn’t mind gearing up for the night that also has his master Floyd Mayweather in the headliner.

‘Tank’ turned to Twitter to send the fight fans into a frenzy. Even though he is still feuding with WBC silver champion Ryan Garcia, he took some time to express his desire in appearing at the Mayweather v Logan Paul event.

Not only that, but he also approached Logan Paul’s brother Jake Paul to fight him on the same night. If ‘Problem Child’ accepts the offer, fans will be in for two back-to-back thrillers under the same roof next February.

Gervonta Davis- Who can face him next?

‘Tank’ wants to face Jake Paul but he might have several other doors open. Unbeaten Ryan Garcia has lined him up after he gets past Luke Campbell in the coming days.

But February might not be the right time for Garcia to re-enter the ring as he will fight ‘The Cool Hand’ in January. Hence, that makes Jake Paul the most possible in-ring adversary if Davis actually wants to enter the ring before Mayweather in February.

‘The Problem Child’ is fresh from his recent KO win over NBA sensation Nate Robinson. He has called out a bunch of athletes including UFC stars Conor McGregor and Ben Askren. But given the fact that he has just two fights under his belt, will he accept a fight against Gervonta Davis this early?

Although he won both the contests via stoppage, he hasn’t faced anyone of Davis’ caliber. However, he is young and hungry for challenges. So, fans might see him respond to the ‘Tank’ anytime.
