GERVONTA DAVIS
 
"I'm happy to be fighting at home. I know I've got a strong opponent. He's a great fighter who's going to be ready to fight from the first bell.
 
"I don't want to rush in there. That's how you lose. We're going to work out jab. Go in and out and execute a game plan.
 
"It means a lot to fight at the DC Armory because I had my first professional fight there. I'm looking forward to getting in the ring again.
 
"I'm ready to put on a show April 1. My team is strong and ready to great things in this sport.
 
"This has been a really good camp. We've been working very hard. I started in Washington, D.C. at HeadBangers and finished up at home in Baltimore. It's another day out here in the lights.
 
"I know my opponent is strong and will be ready. This is another step on the way to a world title. April 1 will be an epic night."
