'Tank' Davis' Coach Kenny Ellis on Devin Haney comments: 'It's all cap'

In a recent interview for The Boxing Rush Hour Show podcast, Coach Kenny Ellis said the former undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney's comment that Team Davis was not interested in fighting him was "all cap" — meaning, it’s a lie.

Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) told ESPN that he was vacating all his lightweight titles to capture more gold at junior welterweight and even welterweight down the road.

"I did everything at 135 that I could," he said. "The biggest fight for me was making that Gervonta Davis fight, and his side showed no interest in making the fight. I've outgrown the division, so now I make my quest to 140 to become a two-division champion."

Ellis and Calvin Ford, who both train 'Tank' Davis (29-0, 27 KOs), are in Houston for their two fighters, super featherweight Mia Ellis (7-1, 6 KOs) and super welterweight Jalil Hackett (7-0, 6 KOs) who will be fighting on Red Owl Boxing’s inaugural show which streams live tomorrow night on DAZN.

The back and forth between Tank and Haney has gone on for some time, and Ford also chimed in with his thoughts regarding Haney’s comments.

"I seen a quote that if he’s getting 30, it ain’t enough. You ain’t even putting those numbers in the seats or doing that. How can you ask for that," Ford said.

Ford made those comments not to contradict what his partner Ellis said but to emphasize what Tank posted not long ago when he said he would offer Haney the same thing as Haney offered Shakur Stevenson (21-0, 10 KOs).

Gervonta 'Tank' Davis fight news coming soon?

Ford said news regarding Tank’s anticipated return to the ring is "coming," adding: "Right now, we are just getting his young fighters out the way so we can focus on him because when he makes that announcement, we have to be all hands on deck."

With Showtime Boxing coming to a close, everyone eagerly awaits where the fighters under Premier Boxing Champions will land.

With Tank being the biggest star there, the thought is he will be the centerpiece of any new deal. For now, we will all continue to wait and see what next year brings us.
