By Jim Calfa: Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis has revealed on social media this week that he’ll be combating in January, however he’s not saying who his opponent can be.
Tank’s opponent is anticipated to be introduced in December, after which the struggle can be promoted to the hilt. Like all Tank’s fights these days, it’ll be on Showtime PPV.
Having all of Tank’s fights on pay-per-view has arguably stunted his profession as a result of he’s not been seen sufficient by informal boxing followers to construct him into an enormous star.
After all, the mushy match-making that’s accomplished on Tank’s behalf has performed an enormous position in holding him from turning into a mega-star as nicely.
The favored Instagram, Twitter & YouTube star Ryan Garcia is anticipated to be Tank’s opponent. Whether or not Ryan will get the struggle will decide whether or not the networks can conform to share the struggle.
Ryan is with DAZN, whereas Tank is with SHOWTIME, and it’s believed that they need to be the only distributor of the struggle, which is comprehensible provided that it’s not a large enough one for it to be shared on two networks.
Each guys are widespread, however they’ve not accomplished sufficient with their careers to department out to grow to be stars in an actual sense, because of the weak match-making that has been accomplished by their promoters.
Tank’s greatest profession wins:
Leo Santa Cruz – featherweight
It’s troubling that Tank hasn’t fought higher opposition than this throughout his profession, however sadly, that’s how his promoters have chosen to information him.
The best way Tank struggled in opposition to Santa Cruz, Rolly, and Barrios, it’s maybe a very good factor that Mayweather Promotions didn’t throw him into the deep finish in opposition to good opposition as a result of he’d doubtless lose.
There have been rumors that Tank is combating 36-year-old Abner Mares subsequent, however he’s denied that. We solely hope that Tank’s opponent is healthier than Mares as a result of he wants a serious improve in opposition from the fighters he’s been dealing with over the last 5 years.

Ryan has been on a mission for the final couple of years to land the Tank Davis struggle, and it’s grow to be tiresome as a result of his promoters at Golden Boy Promotions haven’t matched him in opposition to anybody that would present the followers that he deserves a title shot.
Hopefully, as soon as this struggle is over, Tank will begin taking up the perfect at light-weight as a result of his profession looks as if a gimmick to many boxing followers. He’s simply combating lesser guys and seemingly swerving opposition that would expose him or improve his recognition.
