The WBA champion in the first lightweight Geronta Davis made the decision to move to lightweight division. Therefore, the boxer is now in the same weight class with Vasyl Lomachenko.
Davis refused the title of “super champion” WBA and took 1st place in the updated ranking of the organization in the limit of the lightweight division.
So in the future suggests that Davis may get a fight against Lomachenko. Basil is a world champion at lightweight, WBA, WBC and WBO.
Following Klitschko’s opponent will be former world champion Featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa. This battle plan to organize the 7th of December or early 2020.
At the same time, Ukrainian promoter Bob Arum believes that in the near future the battle Lomachenko – Davies will not take place.
Look, if the promoter of the Davis Floyd Mauser believed that his boyfriend has at least some chance to fight with Lomachenko, we would have already agreed with him. You see, I have a great relationship with Floyd and the head of Mayweather Promotions, Leonard ellerbee. While the battle will not be. Apparently Floyd believes that Geronta too young and not yet ready to compete with Lomachenko
Arum is not going to criticize Mayweather and understands his decision.
Easy to say that Lomachenko only 15 fights in the pros. But don’t forget some important things. He has almost 400 Amateur fights and two victories at the Olympic games. Who else can boast of such? That’s right, nobody. No such experience anywhere else. So if Floyd thinks Geronta is not ready yet, I agree with him. Again, if he believed in the chances of Davis, we would have agreed on the fight for 2 seconds
