Tevin Farmer is done chasing Gervonta Davis


IBF super featherweight champion Tevin Farmer has been trying to get a fight with current WBA champion Gervonta Davis for years now.

The 28 year-old Philadelphia southpaw wanted a fight with Davis long before ever winning a title.

It seems that is no longer a concern as the champion stated:

“I’ve been wanting to fight him. That’s a guy I’m over right now. If the fight happens, it happens. If it don’t, it don’t.

“Leonard Ellebee says there is no way Davis fights on DAZN.

“I’ve never heard of such a thing when DAZN is paying all the money. Why go to Showtime fight for nothing when I’m over here making more money. Read between the lines.”

-Tevin Farmer

Promoter Eddie Hearn even gave his thoughts as well:

“You should never ever take an opportunity from a fighter to make a lot of money and unify the division.

“If they come up with an offer that I can’t afford to pay Farmer I’ll let him fight on Showtime.”

-Eddie Hearn

Farmer held nothing back making that statement, and Hearn cleared the path with his.

It’s a fight that needs to happen. Davis once said if Farmer wins a title, then he would talk to him. When that happened, he then stated he would not move to lightweight unitll he unifies against Farmer.

We are waiting for him to back up his statements.

Regardless of the IBF champion’s position, he and Davis are still going at it on social media.
