When Davis revealed the injury to his hand, there was no other information about it. Fans began speculating about the potential return of the champion and the severity of his injury. Therefore, ‘Tank’ took to Twitter again to reveal that his hands were fine.

This showed that it was not as severe as initially feared. As a result, the rumors of a potential return for the 25-0 fighter started circulating, especially since ‘Tank’ doesn’t have an opponent for his next fight.

Moreover, given that he fought in October, he is due for a return in the next couple of months. This gave fans something to look forward to.
