In the build-up to Gervonta Davis’ seventh-round knockout of Ryan Garcia, Davis told Complex Magazine that he had a list of names he wanted to fight before he retired. The list seemingly was something worth revisiting after a historic win against Davis’ peer and celebrity in Garcia.
Yet, despite the fight being over and media companies needing content for the algorithm, Davis was not all that willing to oblige the media.
This comes on the heels of a piece of exclusive content that dropped from Complex that saw Davis do a 45-minute interview, seemingly very rare in the modern era to see. When Devin Haney’s name got brought up as a future opponent Davis respond just like his counter punches - quick and to the point.
“Yes [I’d like to fight Devin Haney],” said Davis to Speedy Mormon of Complex.
Haney holds the undisputed lightweight currently but will face Vasiliy Lomachenko on pay-per-view on May 20th, which is by no means an easy fight. Davis, who has other more pressing matters seems more focused on his immediate future than a hypothetical fight between himself and Devin Haney. After the fight, FightHype.com caught up with Devin Haney who reflected on his thoughts on Gervonta Davis’ performance.
“I didn’t see the fight,” said Devin Haney or at least it sounded like it, as Haney was more focused on leaving the T-Mobile Arena than answering the FightHype media outlet questions, though it was hard to tell what he truly said.
