Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis talks about his second defense of his IBF Super Featherweight World title against undefeated challenger Francisco Fonseca which has been added to the Mayweather vs. McGregor undercard. The fight will be on Saturday August 26th , in Las Vegas.
While the light heavyweight title tilt is the bout to watch, co-headliner Gervonta Davis is the fighter to watch. The Mayweather protege is an exciting super featherweight with an 18-0 record and nine consecutive knockouts.
The 22-year-old southpaw will take on fellow undefeated prospect Francisco Fonseca for the IBF super featherweight title. While Davis has gradually taken on bigger and better opponents on progressively bigger stages, the Costa Rican has never fought stateside. Davis should overwhelm his less experienced counterpart in a fight that helps put him on the map as a part of boxing’s future ! Below : Gervonta Davis Batters, Stops Jose Pedraza For IBF Title :
