Boxing superstar Gervonta "Tank" Davis seems to make headlines with just a few words - and he did again today. Davis, who took to his social media account posted a few things and when you are possibly the face of boxing these few words become notable.
Davis is seemingly set to return in 2024, as it appears any hope of a 2023 return is out of the window. Took to his account last week to let the world know he is back in the gym training. Today he sent out a few messages to follow that up.
"I came from nothing but that’s not how the world see me," stated Davis earlier today on social media.
A seemingly binge phrase that sounds like something an artist would say in a song and people would use to caption an Instagram post. Yet, it was what came next that felt as though shots were fired as Davis is very vague, but one could interrupt that he might be implying he wants to go after world titles of future glory with his next post.
"I’m coming to get everything that’s mine and that’s for sure," stated Davis.
The most telling was his final tweet in which he alluded to seemingly fighters having to face him. As if Davis was issuing a challenge to the great young fighters of this year such as Devin Haney and Shakur Stevenson.
"And them lil [expletive] gotta see me, all of em," stated Davis as if issuing a warning to the younger generation of fighters.
As of now no opponent nor date is rumored for his return to the ring. Davis knocked out Ryan Garcia in April, but had to serve a short sentence over a legal matter, and since his return has not yet fought. Davis fought two times this year in January and April, but now is coming off a decent layoff - seemingly a trend of his career.
Davis' fight in which he stopped Ryan Garcia in April, was a commercial success selling 1.2 million pay-per-views, and generating a 22.8 million live gate.
