Gervonta Davis had a big weekend in California. “Tank” made very quick work of Hugo Ruiz to defend his WBA super featherweight championship. However, after the fight, Davis has again become flooded with questions of a possible fight with lightweight king Vasyl Lomachenko.
Fans have been clamoring for a fight between the pair for quite some time now. However, the Davis camp doesn’t believe the time is right for the contest. Speaking to media after his big win over Ortiz, Davis acknowledged he thinks the fight will happen, but it has to be at “the right time” (via Boxing Scene):
“I think so,” Davis said. “I think it’s gonna happen. Me and Floyd, we actually talked about it,” Davis said. “Even me and Al talked about it, you know? But it’s about making it at the right time. Everything don’t happen overnight.
“We know that Al and Bob Arum, they did business together before. But it be hard making fights with them, too. But I’m just a student of the game. I have a great team. I’m just following their lead.”
Lomachenko is on an 11-fight win streak and currently reigns as the WBA (Super), WBO, and The Ring lightweight champion. It will be interesting to see how he fares against a fighter with knockout power such as Davis.
When do you think Lomachenko and Davis will share the ring together?
