Tevin Farmer To Gervonta Davis: Enough Talk, I Want You Next!

Tevin Farmer is targeting a mega fight with Gervonta Davis – but knows he must be on his guard as he defends his IBF World Featherweight title against James Tennyson at the TD Garden in Boston on Saturday night, live on DAZN.
 
Farmer (26-4-1 5KOs) makes the first defense of the crown he picked up in convincing fashion in August, flooring Australian Billy Dib in the ninth round of their clash in Sydney en-route to a landslide points win.
 
That win for the Philadelphia ace finally saw him reach the summit after a tumultuous journey to World title glory that saw a debut loss followed by further early career defeats, a shot hand and then receiving a rough decision in his first World title battle with Kenichi Ogawa in December, where his controversial split decision loss was then overturned to a no contest after the Japanese failed a drugs test.

Now the 28 year old has a World title around his waist, ‘American Idol’ is in no mood to let it go. Tennyson (22-0 18KOs) has more than earned his crack at the champ, but Farmer wants a statement victory in Boston to lead to a showdown with ‘Tank’ Davis, and believes his new set-up with DiBella Entertainment, Matchroom Boxing USA and DAZN can deliver that blockbuster clash.
 
“It's beautiful to have this support and backing now from Lou, Eddie and DAZN,” said Farmer. “We can really talk our stuff now, I've got the big money behind me to make any fight. It feels so good to be told I am going to be busy. Three fights - I can't go four months without fighting, that's great.
 
“I have a big fight on Saturday and I'm not over-looking James. you don't get to this level for no reason and I know he's going to come to fight and try to beat me, but that's not going to be easy - he needs to make sure he
brings his A-game.
 
“I want to fight Gervonta Davis. I have a title, I have a great contract, so I don't need him - but I have to have that fight. There's been a lot of talking but I am about handling business. We've talked enough, I want the fight so let's make it happen.
 
“There's no more 'get a title' talk, there's millions of dollars in that fight and it can be made, it's one of the biggest fights in boxing. I don't have to chase anyone, I'm the money out there now, get your ticket and I'll pick it.
 
“The best want to fight the best and it's got to happen. I am a fighter, that's all I want, let's leave the streets on the streets and doing the fighting in the ring.”

[QUOTE=MC Hammer;19208982]Here we see a man with no argument trying his best to pull one out of his a$$. As far as Loma and Davis, why shouldn't Loma come down to see Davis if the fight needs to happen? Tank…

Why do folks actually think Mayweather is keeping Tank Davis away from the ring? If you guys haven't noticed, no PBC fight (other than Wilder-Fury PPV) has been announced since the new deals were revealed. Those deals don't begin until…

[QUOTE=SniXSniPe;19208932]That was in 2013. [B][U]When did Ward go on a layoff? OH WAIT, 2013.[/U][/B] Was Golovkin mandatory for Cotto/Canelo in 2013? No, but he was when Ward was back. You literally expect him to jump up and fight Ward instead…

Tank has a grip of fighters sizing him up... But his master is keeping him locked up somewhere
