Gervonta Davis Hopes Farmer Wins To Set Up Unification

Floyd Mayweather protege Gervonta Davis is hoping to face Tevin Farmer if he wins the vacant IBF super featherweight Title.

Davis hopes to settle their long-running rivalry in what would be an intriguing unification at 130lbs, but first Farmer must beat Billy Dib in Sydney, Australia, live on BoxNation this Friday.

Last year, Davis held the same IBF belt after beating Jose Pedraza and defending it against Liam Walsh, but he was stripped in August after failing to make weight for his next defence.

"If Tevin wins this weekend, I’m willing to fight ASAP... if not I’m going to 135," Davis said.

In April the Baltimore southpaw won the WBA super featherweight crown after crushing Jesus Cuellar in three rounds in New York. The other World Titles are held by Miguel Berchelt (WBC) and Masayuki Ito (WBO).

If the Farmer fight cannot be made, Davis tweeted that he would move up to Lightweight to join the likes of Vasyl Lomachenko and Mikey Garcia.

This past July 29th marked the one-year anniversary of Farmer getting shot in the right hand while trying to intervene during a neighborhood domestic dispute. Just four months after that incident, Farmer outboxed Japan's Kenichi Ogawa in an IBF world title bid, on December 9, in Las Vegas, only to be denied the belt when three judges disagreed with what most ringside observers and boxing pundits felt should have been a clear victory for the Philadelphian. The decision was later changed to a No Contest and the IBF 130-pound title declared vacant after it was discovered that Ogawa tested positive for two forms of androstanediol (synthetic testosterone) in a urine test.

Tevin Farmer v Billy Dib is live on BoxNation at 10.30am (UK time) on August 3rd.

[QUOTE=Corelone;18988592]Out of the two, I think, Farmer has the most defects. Not his heart, not his conditioning, all that is in a good place. He tends to jump in a little careless, face before fists. I come here to get…

Tank seems to be outgrowing 130lbs real quick, Dude looks massive (for his size) while outta the ring. He is young and can prob still make weight but at what cost?? 135lbs will be his next stop sooner than later.…

[QUOTE=P to the J;18988473]What if you’re a huge fan I both boxers like I am? Why should one’s achievements be a problem for fans of the other? You think that admiration for one fighter means contempt for another? That kind…
