Via Chris Williams: Gervonta ‘The Tank’ Davis made a bomb tonight saying “contract is over” with his promoters, and he felt that they wanted him to face Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero on May 28 on Showtime PPV. Referring to Rolly Romero as a “clown,“Tank seems to have little interest in fighting him.
With the way Rolly told Tank by calling him trash “silly,” Questioning his intelligence, you can understand why he isn’t excited about this fight.
There are still two more months that Gervonta will need to endure before facing kt Rolly on May 28, and he has been quiet. Until then, Rolly will likely continue to call out Tank’s name to rip off and attract attention by saying mean things.
Tank didn’t say if he had a plan or not upgrade again for another process with Mayweather Promotions, but it’s reasonable to assume we don’t see him fight any of the top dogs in the lightweight division not signed with that company or with PBC.
When you think about all the great battles the Davis Tank may have fought in the last six years of his career, it’s disappointing to see what he’s missed during that time.
Instead of fighting the best and becoming a big star, Tank was raised in a alien nothingness modelfighting lackluster fighters and little-known competition — a waste of potential.
Given Floyd Mayweather Jr’s massive fortune, he can guarantee that Davis Tank won’t leave the fight if he wants to keep it bad enough. If Mayweather throws enough money at Tank Davis, he can choose to stay.

Lomachenko is 34 years old this year, and who knows how old he will be at the time of his return from the Ukraine-Russia war.
