Tank Davis Promises a Rough Night For Vasyl Lomachenko!


Word on the street is that next up for reigning WBA lightweight champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (30-0, 28 KOs) could be a November unification showdown against the newly crowned IBF belt-holder Vasyl “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko (18-3, 12 KOs). Davis is confident he will take care of business against Loma. But is Tank good enough to dominate and overwhelm the likes of Lomachenko?

The WBA champion is fresh off an eighth-round stoppage over Frank Martin on June 15 in Las Vegas. During the post-fight press conference with the boxing media, Davis said the following when asked about a potential fight with Lomachenko:

“You know what I say, ass-whooping time. An ass whooping.”

AN IN-DEPTH COMPARISON

Davis is one of the rare fighters who can change the tide of a fight and take foes out with one shot. It’s a unique quality. But the 29-year-old is far from a mindless seek-and-destroy warrior. His most recent outings reveal a fighter who is more calculated and cunning than most folks give him credit for.

But Lomachenko is a different caliber of fighter. A three-division champion, the IBF champion has one of the more complex styles in the sport. He often frustrates opponents with his blend of boxing skills, quickness, and ability to create angles to land and avoid punches. Hi-Tech is coming off an eleventh-round stoppage over George Kambosos to win the IBF title on May 12 in Australia.

At age 36, some in the boxing community have suggested that Lomachenko has slowed down and is not the fighter he once was. Regardless of how old he is, the lightweight fighter from Ukraine still has what it takes to beat anyone in the division, including Tank.

It’s one thing for Davis to believe that he would dominate Lomachenko. He has to prove that in the ring. If he does, it would be arguably the most significant feat up to this point in his career.

Davis versus Lomachenko is an A-level matchup. Fans have their fingers crossed that it will occur.
