Ohara Davies: Mayweather Advised TMT Boxers To Avoid Me

By Edward Chaykovsky

British junior welterweight contender Ohara Davies (15-0, 12 KOs) has accused Floyd Mayweather Jr. of preventing a potential fight with Ashley Theophane, who is promoted by the retired pound-for-pound king.

Davies' promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport, has sent an offer to Mayweather to have Theophane fight Davies at The O2 Arena in London on June 3.

"We have already offered the fight to Ashley Theophane for June 3 at The O2," Hearn told Sky Sports. "We haven't heard back from his team yet. I don't think they really fancy that fight. Ohara, we're going to call him 'The Problem', because I don't think anybody is going to fight him."


When Mayweather traveled over to the UK to announce the fight between Gervonta Davis and Liam Walsh, he became embroiled in a heated war of words with Davies.

Davies believes Mayweather has advised Theophane and other TMT promoted fighters to avoid facing him. Theophane has been pushing to face WBA junior welterweight Ricky Burns, but that fight is unlikely to happen. Burns has a unification next month with IBF/IBO champion Julius Indongo and then wants a major bout with someone like Adrien Broner.

"To be honest, I don't think Floyd wants any of his fighters to fight against me, because he knows what happened with me and him," Davies told Sky Sports.
He knows that I will beat anyone that he's got and doesn't want to give me the last laugh. Floyd should just find me an opponent.

"Once I beat one of his fighters, it will look bad for him, and he will probably feel like I have won the argument that we had. I think he's advised his fighters to keep away from me. Floyd is a fighter too, he knows how the game works. He knows that I will beat anyone that he's got and doesn't want to give me the last laugh. Floyd should just find me an opponent."

"I am the money fight. I actually think Ashley Theophane wants the fight against me, but Floyd is advising him not to take it."
