Mayweather: Gervonta Davis Would Have Finished Lomachenko!

Former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather  respects the abilities of Vasiliy Lomachenko (11-1, 9 KOs) - but the retired former pound-for-pound king is very firm that Gervonta Davis (20-0, 19 KOs) is a better fighter.

Mayweather, who promotes Davis, had recently reached out to Top Rank, who handle Lomachenko, in order to explore the possibility of matching their boxers.

Davis is the WBA' s super featherweight champion, while Lomachenko has officially moved up to the lightweight limit of 135.

Last Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Lomachenko made his lightweight debut and scored a tenth round stoppage of Jorge Linares to capture the WBA world title.

Mayweather doubts the contest between Lomachenko and Davis will happen any time soon. He expects Lomachenko to eventually face Mikey Garcia, who holds the WBC title at 135.

"Lomachenko is a solid fighter, but I can tell Tank what to do if the fight ever happened - which I don't think it's going to happen. The fight that I think is going up happen, is that Mikey Garcia will end up fighting Lomachenko. I don't think Lomachenko hits as hard as Mikey Garcia, I don't think so," Mayweather told Fighthype.com.

During the fight with Linares, Lomachenko suffered the first knockdown of his pro career when a right hand caught him in the sixth round.

Mayweather believes Davis, had he dropped the two-time Olympic gold medal winner, would have never allowed Lomachenko to make it out of that round.

"The shot he got hit with wasn't even a hard shot. And I'll tell you this, I truly believe that Gervonta is a much, much bigger puncher than Linares. If Gervonta would have dropped Lomachenko, he would have finished him. He's a finisher. When he gets you hurt, its not a like a Money Mayweather.

"The thing you got to understand about 'Money Mayweather' - is by that time the body was broken down. Now 'Pretty Boy Floyd' would have gone for the kill. He's like a 'Pretty Boy Floyd' going for the kill when he smells blood."
