Baltimore’s two-time Super Featherweight world champion, Gervonta “Tank” Davis kicked off Fight Week in a public work out at the Atlanta Sports Complex on Monday night.
When asked one word to describe his current mood, Davis responded with a smile, “Excited!”
“I expect Gervonta to put on a terrific performance. I expect it to be a great fight. He’s fighting a guy who is going to bring it, who has nothing to lose. He has nothing to lose and he’s coming to be champion of the world.” said CEO of Mayweather Promotions, Leonard Ellerbe. “That’s Gamboa’s mindset. He asked for this fight. My knowledge is that he reached out two years ago, he wanted to fight ‘Tank.’”
“I’m overwhelmed by all the support and the fans who came out tonight. said Davis. “But I still have to get the job done. All I’m worried about is getting the ‘W’. Each fight, I’m breaking records, which are meant to be broken, and Saturday night at State Farm Arena the fans will be the real winners.”
The fight is happening on Saturday, December 28, Live on SHOWTIME at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT and features WBA Light Heavyweight Champion Jean Pascal battling two-division champion Badou Jack in the co-main event from State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
