They Think I’m Shy”: After Blasting World Title Upgradation, Gervonta Davis’ Claim About His Inborn Nature Excites Fans

It’s been some time since Gervonta Davis stayed out of mainstream boxing news. The lightweight champion headlined one of the year’s big fights against Ryan Garcia in April. It followed the January title defense against Hector Garcia. Of course, he grabbed headlines for the prison sentence he received for the 2020 car crash case. But otherwise, the ‘Tank’ made his presence felt through the one-off X/Twitter posts, or better yet, beefs.

Rumor mills are strife, with a tentative return by the first quarter of next year. In the meantime, in his latest tweet, Davis let the fans have a sneak peek at one of his inherent traits. It follows his recent outburst on a move up to full-fledged WBA lightweight champion on account of Devin Haney vacating his belts. The latter leaped up a division a few months ago and will face Regis Prograis on December 9 for the WBC light welterweight belt.

It was an old tweet dating back to January 2015. Gervonta Davis wrote, “I don’t talk a lot around people I don’t know.” Tagging it early today, he simply added, “Still.” There were a few cynics among those who commented. But to most of the fans and followers, it was a testament to what embodies his work inside the squared circle.

This follower shared that he felt the same way. Most of the folks he comes across assume that he is timid, whereas he would be busy watching them over.

This user highlighted one aspect of Gervonta Davis that he genuinely admired: his ability to remain active with minimal babbling.

This fan added that people who are smart usually have such practices. They study the people around them before speaking. That way, they know what to say and how to say it.

Then this fan urged Davis to do away with all small talk. He should focus on what he does best: talk with his hands in the ring.

However, taking a dig, this user congratulated the world champion. They said that Davis managed to avoid facing any of the top players in the division. Hence, he can continue to enjoy a life of leisurely matches, covered by hydration clauses.

In what appears to have been deleted tweets, Gervonta Davis wrote, “I don’t want that s***.” Later, an add-on appeared: “I want blood.

Records-wise, ‘Tank’ still remains an unbeaten champion, with 27 of his twenty-nine wins coming through knockouts. During the last couple of months, talks of a rematch with Isaac Cruz resurfaced. As many boxing fans might be aware of, the Mexican boxer is the only second person to have taken ‘Tank’ the whole distance. Soon after their fight, discussions of a rematch with Ryan Garcia erupted. However, the Californian made it clear that it has to happen within the 140-pound perimeter. Thus, a lot of permutations and combinations follow one of boxing’s biggest draws, for whose comeback fans are waiting impatiently.
