Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis sends vicious warning to Devin after Bill Haney’s comments

Following a big victory, boxing fans generally have to wait a while in order to find out who their favorite fighter’s next opponent will be. Devin Haney is only nine days removed from stripping Regis Prograis of the WBC super lightweight title, yet a superstar can start being circled as his next possible opponent.

It’s not by Haney’s own doing, though. Bill Haney, the vocal and outspoken father of Devin, has recently called out Gervonta “Tank” Davis for “hiding” from Devin by lowballing him with offers and a rehydration clause.

Davis has not taken kindly to Bill’s words, and Tank has now responded in a short yet brutal manner.

“I promise you. Your father gonna cry for what I’m a do to you.”

Davis ended up deleting the tweet, but Devin responded by saying “let’s make it happen” and Davis followed up with “say nothin..“.

It’s tough to get a gauge on if Davis is truly serious about the fight, but it would be a risky proposition. Davis doesn’t really have anything to fear given how his career has played out, but Haney is 31-0 and at the top of his game. Davis hasn’t faced a boxer as technically sound, especially defensively, as Haney yet.

Haney recently moved up a weight class. Davis hasn’t fought at super lightweight since 2021, when he won the WBA title but then vacated to go back to lightweight. It will be interesting to see what weight the two would agree on if the fight ever materializes.
