Gervonta Davis Breaks Silence On Possible Crawford Fight: “I’m The Face Of Boxing”

Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis made headlines recently when a resurfaced video clip showed him saying he would easily knockout out pound-for-pound superstar, Terence Crawford.

The undisputed welterweight champion, coming off a career-best victory over Errol Spence Jr, responded by saying he would welcome ‘Tank’ in the ring, urging the Baltimore native to ‘see what happens’ when he tried to ‘touch his chin.’

Despite those plans seeming solid, he has been consistently asked about the potential of a fight with lightweight, ‘Tank’ Davis. The questions stem from a clip on social media in which the smaller man claims he could stop Crawford quickly.

Despite beliefs from ‘Tank’s team that the narrative is ‘dumb’ and that he was initially joking in the recording, the undisputed welterweight champion doesn’t seem to be playing around with his invite.

He told Sway that he would be there waiting should the Baltimore native ‘want to dare to be great.’

“Yeah, if he wanna dare to be great and be like all the other fighters that’s moving up two weight classes. Tell him come up here. He said I got a glass chin. So tell him come and touch it. At 147. I make 147 for him.”

“Then what the people gonna say? ‘Oh he’s beatin’ up on little guys.’”

‘Tank’ has also played a part in this stellar year for boxing, having beaten previously-undefeated Ryan Garcia three months before the Spence-Crawford fight.

He’s now looking at a return to the ring towards the end of the year and, despite the buzz around a Crawford fight, will likely be at 135lbs where he continues to move towards world titles.
