Gervonta Davis Tells Tim Bradley to Slob on the Knob!
Well the lord of social media boxing beef, Gervonta Tank Davis (22-0, 21 KO’s), is at it once again! This time the former super featherweight champion has taken fire on former two-division champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley (33-2-1, 13 KO’s).
HISTORY OF CRYING WOLF
In late October, Davis made headlines for calling out bigger boxer Josh “The Tartan Tornado” Taylor (16-0, 12 KO’s). At the time, Taylor had just beaten Regis “Rougarou” Prograis in the finals of the World Boxing Super Series.
As a result Taylor received the Muhammad Ali trophy, defended his IBF strap and picked up Prograis’ WBA super world strap, as well as his WBC diamond super lightweight title.
Truthfully speaking, when Davis called out Taylor, most in the boxing world took it as a joke. Firstly because Taylor was the notably larger man. Also, Tank has a lengthy history of talking a mountain of trash on social media that materializes into nothing.
At the moment, Davis has engaged in fruitless back-and-forth bickering with: Josh Taylor, Tevin Farmer, Vasiliy Lomachenko, Gary Russell Jr, his friend Adrien Broner and his own promoter Floyd Mayweather Jr. Now the twitter finger aficionado has begun talking extra greasy about Tim Bradley Jr.
TWITTER FINGER TIRADE
Apparently, Tank was agitated with comments that Bradley made about him. Although honestly speaking, that is not hard to believe. Desert Storm has acquired a reputation as someone who frequently gives harsh criticisms of many current fighters.
In regards to Tank, Bradley went on a half-minute rant on air laying out how he believes Davis is not fighting anyone of note. When he spoke on Tank however, the Baltimore born boxer was quick to respond.
“Man, don’t even mention Gervonta Davis! Gervonta Davis is fighting against uber drivers, cab drivers, you name it.
“He ain’t fighting anybody…how is that fair? He is not fighting anybody! Gervonta Davis you have a lot of talent, I’m not going to lie.
“You do have a lot of talent, but you’re not fighting anybody buddy!”

Via his social media account, Davis ridiculed Bradley’s resume and punching power only after inviting him to perform a session of fellatio!
Aside from the premiere post, Davis also accused Bradley of ducking Amir Khan. Attached to this claim, Davis posted a clip of Khan telling Desert Storm to grow a pair of balls and fight him.
One interesting result of the bold tweets is how many people are going at Tank himself for not having the most solid resume that he could.
In the comment sections under his posts, a plethora of fans have openly questioned and flat out accused Davis of avoiding a number of stiff challenges. This is certainly not the response that Tank was looking for!
Yet, in the end, this is just par for the course when it comes to Davis. Although, due to Bradley being a retired fighter, nothing too much should be expected to come from this.
Obviously there is not going to be a fight and Bradley doesn’t seem to be the type to repeatedly go back and forth on Twitter.
So we can chalk this up to another session of Davis talking tough via Twitter.
