With a fight record of 28-0 with 26 KO’s, and co-signs from some of the greatest boxers of all time, including Floyd Mayweather, Gervonta Davis is undoubtedly one of the greatest, if not the greatest, lightweight fighters right now.
His quick and vicious fighting style has garnered some comparisons between him and boxing legend and former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, known for his punching power and early knockouts.
TMZ caught up with the former heavyweight champion in LA and was asked what he thought about comparisons between himself and “Tank” Davis.
“Tank is a great fighter,” Tyson said. “He’ll be [a legend] too if he keeps fighting.”
Davis remains undefeated after a 9th-round TKO versus Hector Garcia. At the beginning of the 9th, Garcia’s team said their fighter would not continue. Garcia later said he was struck in the last round and could not see.
Davis’ next fight will probably be his most anticipated as he fights undefeated lightweight Ryan Garcia on April 15th in Las Vegas.
