Gervonta Davis took to social media platform X to reveal the offer he had received for a potential bout with Conor Benn

Benn was last in action on February 3, against Peter Dobson at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, defeating Dobson over 12 rounds to claim a unanimous points win as the 27-year-old Benn continued to rebuild his career following his anti-doping issues, which has seen Benn carry on boxing in the USA. 

Following his victory, Benn said he wanted to fight the likes of Chris Eubank Jr, Kell Brook, Devin Haney, and Davis, with promoter Eddie Hearn throwing down the gauntlet to Davis to discuss terms. 

Hearn claimed he had submitted a substantial offer which would see Davis earn a career-high payday. However, Davis refused to entertain the offer. 

Hearn had reportedly submitted an offer of around $25 million to Davis, but the Baltimore star posted a picture of an email to his followers on X, which showed an offer of $10 million in an email sent to Davis’s representatives.

Hearn wrote in the email to team Davis: “Gervonta asked me to contact you regarding our offer to fight Conor Benn.

“We would like to talk further regarding this fight, and our plan would be to stage this fight in May in the USA. We would offer $10million plus an upside on the gate and PPV that I would like to discuss further with you.

“Do you have a good time to discuss this week? Kind regards, Eddie.”

Benn took to social media to respond to Davis.

“Clearly, Gerv-umpalumpa doesn’t know what upside means. Stick to fighting women. All talk, no smoke @Gervontaa,” Benn wrote.

Davis then accused Hearn of a lowball offer, knowing Tank would not accept it due to the contrasts in sums reported to what was submitted.

“U will beat the dog shit outta you [sic]. We all know this! I was just trying to be good for the sport and beat ya ass in ya home town, but the spoon-fed white boy keep trying to cheat me outta my f****** money b****.”

Benn then instructed Davis to get Al Haymon to make the Englishman an offer..

“U beat the dog shit outta you? Calm down you little angry stumpy man,” Benn said, mockingly.


“If you feel lowballed tell your daddy Al to make me a counter offer and I’ll fight you in America and knock your head clean off and then you’ll be 2 foot 2.”

Davis is set to face Frank Martin with a date and venue yet to be confirmed by Premier Boxing Champions, but Davis closed the online exchange suggesting his career is not dependent on Benn or Hearn.

“Too late, dummy, what y’all people don’t understand [is] I DON’T NEED Y’ALL.”
