Gervonta Davis wants a stadium fight, according to a source close to the fighter

Gervonta Davis wants to headline a stadium event.

That’s according to a source close to the boxer who is riding the high of a 29-fight winning run with 27 knockouts, including, most recently, a seventh-round finish of Ryan Garcia in April.

Davis is one of boxing’s biggest attractions in America and the attention he generates is nationwide as he’s performed in front of huge crowds in Baltimore, Atlanta, San Antonio, Los Angeles, New York City, and Las Vegas.

He’s also become a pay-per-view sensation on Showtime Sports with his thrilling win over Garcia generating 1.2 million sales at the American box office.

One of the next steps for Davis could involve much bigger venues as ‘Tank,’ according to a ProBox TV source close to the fighter, wants to headline a stadium fight.

The rumor in Las Vegas is that Raiders owner Mark Davis wants to host a mega fight at the 65,000 capacity Allegiant Stadium — a 10 to 15-minute walk from the T-Mobile Arena or the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The source said, should Davis land a stadium fight in the near future, that they wouldn’t necessarily restrict themselves to Las Vegas.

“There are a lot of stadiums out there,” the source said.

That same source told us that Davis is expected to return to the ring for a third fight in 2023.

Davis began the year with a bang when he brought fireworks to the Capital One Arena in Washington to knock Hector Garcia out in nine rounds on January 7.

A little more than three months later, ‘Tank’ finished Ryan Garcia in an even quicker fashion.

Davis has been linked with Chris Colbert for his third bout this year but the source remained tight-lipped over who is in the running to face him.

However, the source stressed that, depending on how the combat sports calendar plays out, if Davis does not get to fight in Q4 then he’ll compete very early in 2024.
