Gervonta Davis Vs ‘The Dream’: Who will win?

In an earlier interview, Adrien Brody supported Gervonta Davis when the latter had punched Haney while sparring at Floyd Mayweather Jr’s new gym. He was in awe of the holder of five world titles and his boxing prowess. He had also said that since Devin was only 17 years old, he was less experienced than ‘Tank.’ Broner immediately sprang into the ring and steadied Devin down.

In fact, the world champ was questioned about sparring with the youngest heavyweight champion after his seventh-round knockout of Ryan Garcia. Gervonta had said, “He need to focus on May the 20th. We’ll holla at him after. I don’t really wanna speak on him. This is my moment.”

It has been over seven years in his professional career, but the San Francisco-born fighter is yet to taste defeat. In his duel with underdog Lomachenko, he had won the last round on all three judges’ scorecards. Previously, Devin Haney has knocked out George Kambosos Jr, Jorge Linares, Yuriorkis Gamboa, and others in a renowned list.
