Gervonta Davis- The Tank Army is taking over the boxing world

Davis made his boxing debut in 2013 and joined hands with the Mayweather Promotions in 2015. As of now, he is one of the biggest stars of the organization. That said, he is also fortunate to be under the guidance of Floyd Mayweather. One of the greatest boxers ever, Mayweather promotes ‘Tank’ to the fullest and never refrains from praising the young knockout artist. Floyd Mayweather is not new to boxing fans, and having him as a guide has nourished Davis’s career thoroughly.

The CEO of Mayweather Promotions, Leonard Ellerbe, is also the guide to Davis’ business moves. Following a win over Leo Santa Cruz last year, ‘Tank’ can continue headlining all of his fights from this point. Hence, it seems an upgrade for the unbeaten youngster.

Although Gervonta Davis idolizes Floyd Mayweather, and considering his run and career trajectory, we might see ‘Tank’ get even bigger than ‘TBE’ by the time he hangs his gloves. Before going against Leo Santa Cruz, Davis came across some heartfelt appraisal from Mayweather, which seemingly boosted his will to vanquish ‘El Terremoto’.

Floyd Mayweather said, “We cannot overlook Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis, he is also one of the best out there. Pound for pound.”

“You look at him, I believe it’s like over a 90% knockout ratio.”

Davis knocked out Santa Cruz cold in the sixth round of their fight to get hold of the WBA super featherweight title. The American sensation is now 24-0 as a pro pugilist with 23 KOs under the belt. He also has the WBA (super) 130 lbs and WBA (regular) 135 lbs belts to his name. As Gervonta Davis aims to add the WBA (regular) 140 lbs belt to his collection, we can envision a bright future for the young Mayweather Promotions’ boxing star.
