Eddie Hearn has revealed that he’s now sent an official offer to Gervonta Davis for a fight with Conor Benn next.

Hearn said the bout is being eyed for April/May in the USA, if the American star is serious about taking it.

Following Benn’s win over Peter Dobson in Las Vegas on Saturday, he engaged in a fresh back-and-forth with Davis on social media.

This ended with them agreeing to fight next, though many are sceptical about Tank’s sincerity when it comes to working with Hearn.

On Wednesday, Hearn said in an interview on Matchroom Boxing’s YouTube channel: “Lots of talks with Gervonta Davis.

“Firstly, those two are going back and forth, and I’ve spoken to Gervonta personally.

“He’ll be receiving an offer from us today for that fight. I think it’s a huge fight.

“Could happen in the UK, but we’re looking in America for that.

“You’ve got two fiery characters, Gervonta’s an outstanding fighter.

“He’s a super-featherweight really coming up to lightweight and boxing at super-lightweight, but he’s never boxed at welterweight.

“It’s a really tough fight for Conor Benn, Gervonta’s a pound-for-pound great, but I like the size advantage in that fight.

“It will be the first time in a couple of fights that he’ll be fighting someone smaller than him, but he can really crack and he’s an outstanding fighter.

“So it’s a big ask for Conor, but this is what he wants, he wants those kind of tests.

“I think Gervonta Davis vs Conor Benn is a fight that can really light up America and the UK.

“So he will be getting our offer today. We wanna try and make the fight.”
