Tevin Farmer accuses Gervonta Davis of cherry picking Isaac Cruz!
After the announcement of Isaac Cruz as the replacement opponent for Gervonta “Tank” Davis, one of his long-standing bitter rivals has come out to express his disapproval of the bout. Former IBF junior lightweight champion Tevin “American Idol” Farmer (30-5-1, 6KOs), who hasn’t fought since losing his title to Jo Jo Diaz over a year ago, has come out and accused his bitter rival of cherry picking Isaac Cruz.
He took to his social media to throw shots at Davis and his selection of Cruz as his December 5 opponent.
“Davis vs Farmer woulda been betta, cherry picking at it’s finest. I got more to offer than Isaac.”
Whether Farmer believes Cruz is a cherry pick or not, his resume and record indicates otherwise. While Davis should be the favorite over Cruz, it’s not indicative of Cruz as a fighter. It’s more so on how Tank is viewed as potentially an elite fighter in the sport.
TEVIN FARMER NEEDS TO GET ACTIVE
Ever since Farmer had his belt lifted from him by Diaz on January 30, 2020, it’s been extremely quiet from him and his team. He revealed to 3kingsboxing.com, in an interview from earlier in the year, that he was supposed to be taking on Diaz in a rematch. That didn’t materialize due to some mishaps within his team.
Now, with only two months left in 2021, it appears that he could possibly not see ring action for two years if a fight isn’t lined up for him between now and January 30 2022. Obviously this shot at Davis is an indicator that there’s plenty of ill will still brewing between these two, and that Farmer is looking for a big payday. While you can’t blame him, that ship for him and Davis to fight has appeared to vanish from the thoughts of fight fans and pundits.
Moreover, it’s quite imperative that Farmer gets back in the ring and remind fans he’s still a viable contender at either 130 or 135. He currently ranks number #7 in the IBF and #5 in the WBC. Let’s hope he makes his return to ring soon and make his case for big fights by fighting and not talking.
