It has been five months since Gervonta Davis faced Ryan Garcia in the ring. Following the victory against Garcia, on account of violating house arrest, Davis was sent to jail. In 2020, after Davis injured Jayir Smith in a hit-and-run case, he received 90 days of house arrest followed by three years of probation. However, by buying $3.4 million worth of property, ‘Tank’ violated the terms of his house arrest and served the remainder of his sentence in prison.

Although Davis has been released, he has yet not confirmed what he wants next in the sport. While boxing fans certainly want ‘Tank’ to face the best fighters in the division, the head of Manny Pacquiao‘s Promotions, Sean Gibbons hinted at a potential rematch between Isaac Cruz and Gervonta Davis. Here is what Gibbons said.

Sean Gibbons teases fans with a potential rematch between Gervonta Davis and Isaac Cruz

In a recent interaction with BoxingScene, Gibbons informed the press that a number of fans wished Gervonta Davis would fight Isaac Cruz again. According to Gibbons, since, Cruz is now part of the MP Promotions, there is immense interest in a rematch between ‘Tank’ and ‘Pitbull’. “When I travel around the US and Mexico and get stopped by boxing fans, the first question they always ask me is when Is Pitbull fighting Gervonta Davis again?” said Sean Gibbons.

Manny Pacquiao has only signed one non-Filipino fighter ever to his MP Promotions stable and that’s Isaac ‘Pitbull Cruz, Jr. and backs him to win,” he added. Along these lines, Gibbons praised PBC and Al Haymon. And while on the same topic, he even hinted at a potential date for Cruz vs. Davis II.

As per Gibbons, Al Haymon’s PBC is the only company that is taking care of the needs of the hour. In his opinion, at the current pace, PBC is likely to offer Davis Cruz II as a post-Christmas gift. “PBC and Al Haymon are the only company in 2023 to give the boxing fans the fights the fans want,” said Gibbons.
