After a meager 2022 that included just one appearance, Gervonta “Tank” Davis was determined to turn things around. In the first week of the new year, the current lightweight WBA “Regular” belt holder defended his secondary crown against Hector Luis Garcia.

The 31-year-old Dominican seemingly earned his stripes following an impressive year. After scoring a monumental upset over Chris Colbert in February of 2022, Garcia parlayed that victory into world title glory, stripping Roger Gutierrez of his WBA super featherweight trinket just a few months later.

Yet, regardless of his sudden rise to fame, the betting world succinctly made Davis a gargantuan favorite. While Garcia appeared unfazed by his perpetual line of naysayers, Davis (28-0, 26 KOs) would go on to leave the former Olympian nearly unconscious during their showdown.

Although the results were spectacular, Keyshawn Davis recently revealed that he wasn’t surprised by the Baltimore native’s performance.

“Tank is Tank,” said Keyshawn to “Tank is great. He did the expected for me.”

A proven deadly puncher, Gervonta has a penchant for closing the show in the blink of an eye. But, regardless of his jaw-cracking power, Keyshawn has grown sick and tired of watching the 28-year-old take on tenuous opposition.

In totality, Keyshawn is well aware that the powerful southpaw is not only a talented fighter but also a gigantic star. Having sold-out countless arenas worldwide, Keyshawn concedes that the 135-pound secondary titlist has the sort of star power that Devin Haney, Shakur Stevenson, and Teofimo Lopez simply don’t enjoy.

Nevertheless, in Keyshawn's view, his ability to put butts in seats shouldn't exclude Gervonta from scathing criticism surrounding his questionable choice of opponents.

“Alright Tank, at this point bro, fight somebody bro. You’re selling out all the arenas, you’re a superstar. You was pro before the Devin Haney’s, the Shakur Stevenson’s, the Teofimo’s all of that. You gotta fight somebody. When the f--- are you gonna fight somebody?”

Davis is close to finalizing a deal to face Ryan Garcia - which is going to become a major event. The bout is slated to land in the month of April.
