Who is Gervonta Davis? Let me look him up.
OK, he’s a 23-year-old undefeated boxing champion with a 19-0 professional record and 18 of those wins by knockout. The kid’s also a Floyd Mayweather protege.
Ah, well, that explains Davis stirring things up today with one simple tweet.
Kelleher, as you might expect, retorted (via Twitter).
Whether Davis is serious or just looking for a little attention, he got a rise out of more than just Kelleher. Here’s what other MMA fighters had to say:
UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway
Jokes aside, I’m not one to say MMA is a “real fight” at the expense of disrespecting boxing, because they’re both combat sports worthy of respect. But one is clearly more violent and requires more than one-dimensional training.
So when boxers say they want to step inside the cage, do they really? What are the chances? Stop playing, Gervonta Davis.
