Though Gervonta “Tank” Davis has been out of the ring for almost a year, he may be heading back overseas this summer, according to sources.

With a body shot in the seventh round, the Baltimore southpaw recorded his 27th stoppage and 29th victory of his career against Ryan Garcia.

It reached the top five gates in Las Vegas history and was one of the most profitable fight nights of 2023. Tank was placed under house arrest and later sent to prison for a hit-and-run incident in 2020, therefore he was unable to maintain the momentum.

With Devin Haney opting to move up a category and give up his titles, he is currently the only WBA Lightweight World Champion, and fans have been clamoring for word on the 29-year-old’s comeback. Some had anticipated that he would appear in PBC’s inaugural event with its new broadcast partner, Amazon Prime, but that hasn’t been the case.

Rather, according to several sources cited by The Ring Magazine, Davis is scheduled to face in the summer in the United Kingdom.

Although there are no known opponents associated with the news, conjecture on who British celebrity would take the other corner will now be entertained.

If the news is true, it will be Tank’s second fight in the United Kingdom; his first came at the Copper Box in 2017, when he stopped Liam Walsh in the third round.
