Gervonta Davis pokes fun at Devin Haney over tickets sell-out for Regis Prograis fight

Gervonta Davis has mocked Devin Haney, despite the fact his fight vs Regis Prograis sold out on Saturday night.

The rival American boxing stars are yet to compete against one another in the ring, but are already doing so outside of it.

Tank has quickly become a bona fide attraction in the USA, repeatedly selling out arenas and recording impressive PPV numbers over the past few years.

Haney has been perceived to be struggling to match such numbers.

However, in 2023, the 25-year-old has been in two huge fights.

Haney beat Vasyl Lomachenko in front of a sell-out crowd of 14,436 fans at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas in May.

He is now set to face Prograis in front of a sell-out crowd of 16,000 at the Chase Centre in San Francisco.

Although these fights have of course not generated as much money as Davis’ huge clash with Ryan Garcia in April, Haney is still posting impressive numbers for such an early stage in his career.

Tank refused to give him any credit though.

When the news of the Haney vs Prograis sell-out was announced on Friday, he took to social media to mock his rival.

Davis simply tweeted: “Tickets [were] $57, it should be.”

The 28-year-old deleted the tweet not long later, as has become customary for him.
