In his last fight too, ‘Tank’ displayed his true class by going all guns blazing against Mario Barrios. It was his first fight at the super-lightweight roster. And the Maryland native proved his mettle to a great extent in this battle.

But when will the undefeated boxer again step inside the squared circle?

Recently, Davis took it to his official Twitter to provide a timeline for his return. “Oct, I’m back,” he wrote.

Davis, in his sheer war against Barrios, showcased vast prowess from his artillery. In the initial rounds themselves, he began his assault and traded substantial punches with his fellow adversary. However, in the mid-rounds, ‘Tank’ lost his momentum a bit, and he faced the wrath of Barrios’ power.

But as he realized the same, he picked up the pace and shook his fellow contemporary with thunderous hits. As a result, Barrios fell prey to ‘Tank’s vicious power in round 11 and he ended up giving that fight to Davis.

With that win, Davis improved his immaculate track record to 25 wins with a whopping 24 T/KO’s. He has now moved ahead with this win and is eager to pull off a thriller on his return. That said, in his above tweet, he cleared that he’s eyeing an October 2021 return.

Who should Gervonta Davis confront in his return fight?

Davis shares a rivalry with a number of boxing stalwarts. But one rivalry that has kept the fans entertained until now is his feud with the stout Ryan Garcia.

Both of them have exchanged an enormous war of words with each other. And have also challenged each other for a fight.

However, a 12-round encounter between these two hasn’t reached fruition. But it seems that this might just be the ideal time for these two to collide.

But in order to face Garcia, Davis will have to notch down, as ‘King Ry’ is a lightweight for now. With that, it’ll be intriguing to see how things shape up for this pair in the coming time.
