WBA "regular" lightweight champion Gervonta Davis indicates that he's still very close to former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

For most of his career, Davis was promoted by Mayweather's company, Mayweather Promotions.

Last year, the two sides parted ways when Davis contract expired with Mayweather Promotions. Davis wanted to branch out on his own with his own promotional company, GTD Promotions.

For last Saturday's Showtime Pay-Per-View fight with division rival Ryan Garcia, Davis had Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe as his adviser.

On the night of the fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Mayweather was by Davis' side for much of the event and was shouting words of encouragement throughout the fight.

Davis would rack up another big win, by dropping Garcia in the second round and then decking him again, for the full count, in the seventh round with a heavy body shot.

After the fight, Davis explained that he still looks to Mayweather to secure advise for these big events.

"He gave me great words, he was telling me to stay calm. I always like to listen to Floyd when it comes to big stages like this because he’s the only one who has been in my shoes and been in these type of fights," Davis said.

"So I always try to stay close to Floyd when stuff like this happens just to keep me humble and have me on the right. I always appreciate Floyd for being in my corner, having my back, always, there’ll always be love for Floyd Mayweather."

Mayweather, who retired in 2017, took part in the three largest pay-per-view fights in history - against Manny Pacquiao, Conor McGregor and Oscar De La Hoya.
