Gervonta Davis Trainer Rules Out Crawford Fight And Reveals Likely Next Opponent

Despite the gulf in weight classes between the pair, there has been talk of an all-American mega fight between Terence Crawford and Gervonta Davis.

However, Davis’ trainer has poured cold water on that speculation – as well revealed who he believes his charge will take on next.

In a recent interview with FightHype, Calvin Ford claimed ‘Tank’ was just “playing around” when he stated he would stop Crawford.

Crawford – who recently became undisputed champion in the welterweight ranks – said recently he would stick around in that division if ‘Tank’ wanted to jump up from lightweight for a challenge.

He also added that a rematch with Isaac Cruz was also the frontrunner for the Baltimore puncher’s next fight.

“He was just playing around, end of story. ‘Tank’ does that to get an eyebrow raise out of people.”

“It’s like when they talk about Inoue. He’s weight classes below, but everyone still says something about that fight.”

“Right now, we’re just waiting on that contract to come across our desk for who we’re fighting next and who we’re getting ready for. My thinking is that it’ll be ‘Pitbull.’

With Devin going up and Shakur having plans to fight Lomachenko next year, I think that’s the direction we’re going.”

Davis has not boxed since his stunning stoppage victory over Ryan Garcia in April, and was only last month released from a brief jail sentence.

Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz is one of only two men to have taken Davis to the final bell, having lost a competitive decision back in 2021 in what many believe was ‘Tank’s toughest fight as a professional.

Davis was a clear winner on the night even despite a hand injury and ‘Pitbull’ failed to impress in his most recent outing, but a rematch may make sense to get the former back into the swing of things.
