WBA super featherweight world champion Gervonta Davis told TMZ Sports says he's ready, willing and able to get in the ring with Vasyl Lomachenko, who holds the WBA, WBO lightweight straps.
Tank is coming off a second round stoppage over Ricardo Nunez, in a bout that took place last weekend in Baltimore. He improved his record to an impressive 22-0.
31-year-old Lomachenko is widely regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. He's 13-1 and hasn't lost since 2014, when he suffered a twelve round decision loss at the hands of Orlando Salido.
Lomachenko is scheduled to return on August 31, when he faces Luke Campbell at the O2 Arena in London. The vacant WBC lightweight title will also be at stake in the contest.
Davis states that he's very interested in getting in the fight with Lomachenko at some point.
"Of course [I'm interested in the Loma fight]. Just as a boxing fan, ya know, top guys fighting each other. Definitely looking for that. Maybe the beginning of 2020," Davis said.
Davis is only 24, and Lomachenko has a mountain of experience with a voluminous amateur background that includes two Olympic gold medals. Davis is not intimidated, and believes that he's ready right now for the fight.
"[I'm] old enough to take on the challenge. I think I have enough skills. I’m maturing as a fighter, as a person. I think it’s time," Davis said.
And, his message to Lomachenko...
"Just keep winning and someday we will get in there. We will get in there for sure," Davis said.
