Unbeaten world champions- Gervonta Davis and his mentor Floyd Mayweather are often regarded as an iconic pair in modern-era boxing. The duo seems inseparable as protege and mentor. However, that hasn’t stopped the boxing world from fantasizing about a matchup between them.
Although ‘Tank’ and ‘TBE’ hail from two different eras, they have a lot in common. Both men tasted success in the early stage of their careers, becoming unbeaten world champions in their respective journeys.

In response, ‘Tank’ said, “I don’t think I will do it. My main focus is to watch him because I can learn so much from him, talking about Floyd. And I know myself, if I get in there with somebody, it’s gonna be a timed out, I wanna hurt him and I will never do that thing, just learn from him.”
