Not only is Gervonta 'Tank' Davis getting called out by many of the top boxers in the sport, he's also become a target for MMA fighters as well.

The UFC's newest star, world champion 'Sugar' Sean O’Malley has called for a boxing match with Davis.

After a stunning second round stoppage of Aljamain Sterling at UFC 292, which took place earlier this month, O’Malley took part in the post-event press conference and surprised many in attendance by calling for a fight with Davis.

“I wouldn’t mind knocking out Gervonta Davis, I’m telling you that fight is going to happen…I would love to go out there and box him…I don’t know if he’s a big enough star for the UFC to let that happen, but it’ll happen,” O'Malley said.

One of Davis’ trainers, Kenny Ellis, believes O’Malley would get destroyed in a boxing match.

“Tank gonna whoop his ass, in the first round. Any tiny lightweight would beat him, Tank, Shakur, Haney, all those guys would beat him cause they’re boxers. All of them would knock him out. You better leave those boxers alone before you get knocked out," Ellis told ES News.

O'Malley's callout is not surprising.

Back in 2017, UFC superstar Conor McGregor made a fortune in his stoppage loss to Floyd Mayweather. Earlier this month, MMA veteran Nate Diaz got paid a career high purse for his decision loss to Jake Paul. And former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou is being paid a career high purse for a boxing match with WBC king Tyson Fury on October 28 in Saudi Arabia.

For his part, Davis was in action twice in the first half of 2023. 

In January, he stopped undefeated Hector Luis Garcia in nine rounds. He came back in April to drop unbeaten Ryan Garcia twice for a knockout victory in the seventh.

At the moment, Davis is dealing with the aftermath of his legal troubles in connection to a serious auto accident. He is still expected to return before the end of the year, with several names being mentioned in the running to fight him - including former foe and top contender Isaac Cruz.
