Mike Tyson backs Gervonta Davis to fulfill Floyd Mayweather’s prophecy
Rising star Gervonta Davis got a commendation as one of the best heavyweights to ever put on a pair of gloves in “The Baddest Man” Mike Tyson.
The three-weight defending champion, who stopped Mario Barrios on his last outing, is expected to be Floyd Mayweather’s second coming by the man himself.
Its promoter, doing what promoters should be doing, has praised Davis from day one and sees it as a future book for the number one book.
Tyson not only agrees with Mayweather, but the New Yorker also says “Tank” is the best fighter on the planet right now, before fulfilling Mayweather’s prophecy.
“I think Gervonta Davis is the greatest fighter right now,” Tyson said. “He’s the best dog. There is no doubt about it. He showed it.
Mayweather CEO Leonard Ellerbe is ringing all over social media about Davis, and people are now starting to believe Floyd Mayweather’s knowledgeable right-hand man.
Before Davis clinched the best win of his career against Barrios, Ellerbe expressed his take on the undefeated puncher.
“Whenever you think of major fights, you think of Gervonta Davis. He is the most exciting fighter in all of the sport.
“When you think of ‘Tank’ Davis, there’s a word to describe it, and it’s exciting. When it comes to pay-per-view, people want nothing but excitement. , and that’s what “Tank” Davis offers.
“I can’t say enough about the young man. He is a formidable fighter who does everything well.
“He’s a great puncher with great speed. Gervonta is run by none other than a very good friend of mine, Virgil Hunter, who is a down to earth guy.
“Virgil Hunter has guided Andre Ward his entire career, and we know what kind of career Andre Ward has had. Virgil Hunter is going to prepare Barrios.
Tyson’s words will mean a lot to Ellerbe, Mayweather and Davis, who are starting to turn heads in the quest for Pay Per View stardom.
Dominating the PPV is the end of the game for all fighters and was the starting mission for Ellerbe and Mayweather as they guided Davis.
They want one thing, for Davis to follow in Mayweather’s footsteps and become the most requested boxer.
As things are going, it seems very likely.
