Gervonta Davis Sees Himself As Real Lightweight Champion

By virtue of owning the WBC, WBO, WBA, IBF, and Ring Magazine titles, Devin Haney is the undisputed lightweight champion of the world. 

Devin Haney holds all the widely respect titles in the lightweight division. The WBC, WBA, WBO and the IBF. Haney even went to Australia to fight George Kambosos Jnr., twice, to get the all the titles. 

So despite Gervonta Davis holding a form of the WBA title, won that he earned when he defeated Yuriorkis Gamboa in December of 2019 as the title was vacant, Davis views himself as the real champion of the division. 

“They gave Devin a belt. He didn’t fight for his belt. When he became undisputed, he waited for Kambosos to win the belts. When Teofimo had the belts, they didn't fight. As quickly as he fought with Kambosos, he could have fought with Teofimo. Both are on the same side,” Davis stated when speaking to Brian Custer on Custer’s podcast, “The Last Stand.“Of course, he has all these belts and people still don't know him. He can't fight in his own hometown. He can't sell it out. It's just jabs at [me] – the champ. He knows who the real champ is. You know what I mean?”

Davis is targeting a April 15th fight with Ryan Garcia in a 136 lbs catchweight fight for his next bout. No word on when Devin Haney will return as of now.
