Gervonta Davis claps back at Terence Crawford!
WBA “regular” lightweight champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis has received a barrage of criticism for his performance against aging former unified featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa.
However, social media went into a feeding frenzy when pound for pound fighter and WBO welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford “mic dropped” his opinion.
It was only a matter of time before word got to the ears of the Baltimore knockout artist and without hesitation quickly fired back.
“The guy I fought that is the same person that hurt him and he was getting touched up in his last fight.”
Although Davis is right, the former unified champion was the hardest fight of the WBO champions career; something he has consistently acknowledged on numerous occasions. However, keeping things in perspective that was five years ago when the Cuban fighter was still considered a worthy opponent.
It has been painfully obvious he is far removed from being the same formidable fighter he once was.
Furthermore, Crawford was getting leather landed on him in the mandatory title defense against Egidijus Kavaliauskas. However, an argument can be made the Lithuanian fighter wasn’t considered a washed-up fighter and was still far better an opponent than the 38 year-old Cuban.
Look, whenever a fighter moves up into a new division, there are going to be comparisons. People will size fighters up against the other champions and challengers of that division. It has been part of the sport since it’s existence and there is nothing wrong with that.
There are plenty of viable opponents in the division that if a fight is made can change the narrative quickly for the WBA champion. Looking into 2020, if team Davis wants to kill the noise the solution is a contract offer away!
