Gervonta Davis was Floyd Mayweather‘s prodigy, and he gave an interview recently after the press conference he had for the Frank Martin fight and what was more surprising than anything else was that he said he would like to fight Floyd Mayweather.

Aside from Mayweather, Davis named Shakur Stevenson, Ryan Garcia, Devin Haney, Teofimo Lopez, however, he specified that the one who would give him the most fight in case he could get in the ring with him, would be his former mentor.

Davis says he has a better career than Mayweather at his age

Davis already has history with the first 3 he mentioned and even fought Ryan Garcia; he has already had words with Shakur Stevenson and recently starred in a brawl in Las Vegas after the Canelo Alvarez vs Jaime Munguia fight.

Meanwhile, Floyd shared an image on social networks about his next fight in Mexico City and although there are no details of the fight, the mere fact that ‘Money’ wants to fight in Mexico has sports fans very excited.

Although it has not yet been confirmed who will be Mayweather‘s opponent in the next exhibition, there have been rumors linking him with several opponents, including a proposed rematch with Gotti III, which did not materialize.

The relationship between Mayweather and Davis began to deteriorate after Davis left Mayweather Promotions, the company that guided him to his first world championship in 2017 and collaborate exclusively with his advisor Al Haymon.

After they ended their promotional relationship, Mayweather mocked Gervonta‘s videos as both tend to over brag as is customary to generate controversy.

What might be better news for fight fans than witnessing the comeback of the greatest of all time? Mike Tyson is about to make a comeback to the boxing arena after being away from it for years, and this time he is up against the Youtuber-turned-boxer, Jake Paul. Their clash is scheduled to happen on July 20. Nonetheless, many people in the fight world think that Tyson would decimate Paul, but the ‘Count’ has another opinion on it.

The significant age ͏gap of nearly 30 years between the fighters might ͏impact their performance. However, Mike Tyson has come forward to showcase his skills by uploading his training videos. Michael Bisping has expressed some different thoughts about the former boxing champion. Let’s take a look at what the ͏former middleweight champion had to say ͏about the sparring videos.

Mike Tyson is one of the biggest names in the history of boxing. However, the former boxing champion is way past his prime. At the age of 57, Tyson last fought against Roy Jones Jr. in 2020. Despite giving it their all, Tyson and Jones had to shake hands as their match ended in a draw. Fast forward to 2024, and ‘Iron Mike’ is on the verge of clashing against Jake Paul.

Is the former boxing champ truly ready for the fight? Tyson consistently uploads his sparring videos, and from the looks of it, ͏he seems more prepared than ever. But what’s the reality ͏behind it? According to former middleweight champ of the UFC, Michael Bisping Tyson might be one of the best in the world, but his age might be catching up to him. While having a conversation on his YouTube channel, Bisping gave his reasoning behind his doubts about the boxing champ.

“Yes, we’re seeing clips of Mike Tyson, little short clips with the legendary coach Rafael Cordeiro, 15-20 seconds long, on Instagram. He’s looking like a killer; he’s looking like a machine, but pads don’t hit back, okay? And we’re just seeing the Instagram version. Today they had the press conference; they squared up, they got in each other’s faces, but it was a cordial, friendly affair.” said Bisping.

Mike Tyson might be one of the best in the world, but when age catches up, even the best fighters crumble, and fighting against a young fighter, even if he is a newbie, might prove to be a bit harsh. Nonetheless, the fight is happening, and along with Bisping, former UFC fighter and former flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson is also concerned about Tyson.

Boxing is a harsh sport that is brutal, and it could be life-threatening if you don’t understand when to give up. Mike Tyson’s decision to fight Jake Paul may be a good or bad decision for him, according to former UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson. While analyzing the fight footage of Tyson’s last bout against Roy Jones Jr. on his YouTube handle, Johnson found that unfortunately, age has caught up with the boxing giant.

“The thing that would be interesting when Mike Tyson fights Jake Paul is what happens when Jake Paul hits Mike Tyson. Right, like what happens when he hits him. Will his brain be able to take it, and will his chin be able to last? That is what it is going to come down to at the end. Skill-wise, Mike Tyson is obviously better. The way he moves the angles, the shots that he is hitting are way better,” said Johnson.

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather’s latest exhibition fight will take place against Victor Ortiz, who he controversially KO’d in 2011.

Mayweather retired from professional competition with a flawless record of 50-0 after stopping UFC legend Conor McGregor but has since been involved in several big million exhibition bouts. According to ESPN, the 47-year-old is now set to face Ortiz on August 24 at the Plaza de Toros Mexico in Mexico City, the largest bullring in the world.

Their first fight ended in controversy after Mayweather KO’d Ortiz with ‘cheap shots’. Ortiz was deducted a point after hitting Mayweather with an illegal headbutt, which prompted him to hug his rival seemingly in an attempt to apologise. Mayweather then hit Ortiz with two punches that took him by surprise, which led to the end of the fight.

Mayweather was then pressed about his sportsmanship, to which he responded: “In the ring, you have to protect yourself at all times. After it happened, we touched gloves and we were back to fighting and then I threw the left hook and right hand after the break. You just gotta protect yourself at all times.”

The boxing legend has taken part in seven exhibition fights since retiring from boxing, with his last outing against John Gotti III, the grandson of notorious mobster John Gotti, ending in an all-out brawl. Mayweather has also fought the likes of reality TV star Aaron Chalmers and YouTuber Logan Paul in un-scored bouts.

Mayweather has claimed he makes around $15-20million for all of his exhibition bouts, but his fight with Paul sold over one-million pay-per-view buys and saw him pocket a massive $65million. Ortiz, 37, retired from boxing two years ago with a professional record 33-7-3 after beating Todd Manuel in his last fight.


Does Anthony Joshua deserve another go at Oleksandr Usyk? In a handful of days, the biggest fight of the last two decades will unfold in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia! Tyson Fury will go toe-to-toe with ‘The Cat’ for the coveted heavyweight undisputed status. And ‘AJ’ is being touted as the boxer to challenge the winner of that fight. However, if Usyk wins, does Joshua deserve a shot?

All the way back in September 2021, the Englishman fought Usyk and suffered a devastating loss via unanimous decision, something he couldn’t change in the following year in their rematch. Since then, Joshua has unraveled a new chapter in his career with comeback fights against Otto Wallin and, more importantly, Francis Ngannou, who even gave Tyson Fury a run for his money last year. Not to mention, Joshua has now teamed up with coach Ben Davison. But! Usyk doesn’t think the wins or the new coach would matter much if they fought again in an interview with Boxing King Media.

During Usyk’s interview, the reporter suggested Joshua could be a problem for him because of Ben Davison. However, the Ukrainian heavyweight wasn’t buying any of it! He promptly responded by saying, “I don’t know because Francis Ngannou and Otto Wallin [are] good boxers, but not top level boxers.”

Speaking about Joshua’s last fight, Usyk casually tossed that second-round knockout into the ‘easy-peasy’ pile of victories. “Anthony is a great man, great boxer, Olympic champion. His last fight was great because Anthony is Olympic champion and it was Ngannou’s second boxing fight,” said Oleksandr Usyk.

Then, he turned to those who insist Joshua would pose a challenge in a third match, urging them to snap out of the fantasyland, because polishing off an inexperienced opponent doesn’t exactly hone Joshua’s skills. “Listen people, wake up, Olympic champion and a man who has two fights – it’s different,” said Usyk. Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua has shared his predictions for the undisputed clash!

It cannot get bigger than this! Usyk, the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion, will look to collect Tyson Fury’s WBC heavyweight title on May 18. After the boxers arrived in Saudi last week, His Excellency Turki Alalshikh has revealed on X that even Anthony Joshua has arrived in the country to witness history unfold.

Meanwhile, a couple of weeks ago, Joshua appeared in an interview with talkSport, where he shared his prediction for the fight. Joshua said, “I’ve fought Usyk so I can only speak on what I’ve experienced with him – phenomenal fighter, I would say he’s going to do a really good job… I’ve never fought Fury, so I can’t speak on what it’s like to face him. Only speaking on what I know, I have to say Usyk will be victorious.”

With mere days left in the fight against Tyson Fury, Oleksandr Usyk seems to have dropped hints at the potential trilogy with Anthony Joshua. While Usyk doesn’t seem to think the result will be any different if they fought again, the Saudis have a way of making fights happen. So, who knows! A trilogy fight could be on the horizon.

The ongoing beef between Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis and his ex-promoter Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather is sizzling hotter than a grill at a summer BBQ! And guess what? The latest juicy slice of drama from Tank aimed at Money seems to have Shakur Stevenson‘s fingerprints all over it! But what does Shakur Stevenson have to do with their beef?

Well, the thing is, not that long ago, Gervonta Davis took shots at the former five division champion, revealing ‘Money’ was facing money issues in Dubai, and was stuck there because of it. Now, Mayweather wasn’t going to take it lying down, so he responded by sharing a clip of ‘Sugar’ Stevenson in his Instagram story, where the Newark native urged Davis to accept the fight. Now, cut to Sunday, and the whole thing bubbled up again when Davis tweeted he would fight Vasyl Lomachenko next.

Hours earlier, following Lomachenko’s utter dominance over George Kambosos Jr, Gervonta Davis hopped on X to write in a now deleted tweet, “He’s after Frank..let me get Frank first.” Seeing Davis plan another fight that doesn’t involve him Stevenson couldn’t resist as he wrote, back, “He’s on the other side tho.” However, this wasn’t enough to get a rise out of Davis, so Stevenson went a step further.

In a following tweet, Stevenson shared Davis’ clip, where ‘Tank’ can be seen dancing with a rather feminine aura. Stevenson captioned the clip, “Says this guy.” This seems to have been the last straw that sent Davis over the edge. He promptly responded in a now deleted tweet, “Floyd called you and made you make a video you did it knowing he don’t f**k w you..you definitely a d**k eater and do everything ni**as tell you to do.”

Davis and Mayweather’s relationship could really have a solid rom-com, just look at their history. Following Davis’ win over Rolly Romero, the undefeated boxer split with Mayweather’s promotion and started working with guidance from Al Haymon. Since then, the duo has both shown respect and hate against each other on several occasions. The best example would be what happened during the Ryan Garcia fight last year.

‘Tank’ Davis accuses Floyd Mayweather of kicking him out 

Just last year, the Baltimore native fought Garcia in a second fight since separating from Mayweather. However, he was still training for the fight in Mayweather’s gym, something that seems to have irked the former champion, Davis claimed. In a tweet Garcia had written, “You always act like you got some info. Shut your a** up already.”

“You basically are just a shaderoom [gossip] page, relax. I heard some stuff about you as well,” Garcia continued. In response, Davis wrote, “What? That Floyd’s petty a** said I couldn’t use his gym anymore. I don’t give a f***!… Nah, it’s not what I heard, it’s what I know, chump!” Despite this, on the night of the fight, Floyd Mayweather was ring side to support his former prodigy.


By 2013, at age eighteen, he switched to a professional career, debuting against Desi Williams on February 13. He moved three weight divisions during the next decade, winning multiple titles. Davis has yet to come across the face of defeat in his career. In 2024, Davis converted to Islam and is now known as Abdul Wahid.

  Gervonta Davis’ Early Life

Gervonta Davis was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on November 7, 1994. He used to go to Digital Harbor School but left it early to focus more on boxing. Reportedly, he obtained his high school diploma through a G.E.D. program.

Davis’ parents, father, Garrin Davis, and mother, Kenya Brown, were reportedly addicted to banned substances. Hence childhood in a troubled home resulted in him being taken from one foster home to another.

The area he grew up in was called Sandtown-Winchester. Located in West Baltimore, it gained notoriety as a highly crime-prone locality. Davis has often claimed to have lost quite a few friends to violence.

When he was eight, he told The Sun about trying a banned substance. Seemingly he didn’t like it and decided not to touch it again.

Gervonta Davis’ partner and children

The twenty-nine-year-old world champion Gervonta Davis has never been married. However, he has been through a few relationships over the years.

Gervonta Davis and Andretta Smothers – Reportedly, the two were in a relationship for a long time. On June 20, 2018, she gave birth to their daughter Gervanni. However, the relations between Davis and Smothers soon turned for the worse.

While they went separate ways, Smothers, unemployed at the time, filed a case against Davis demanding child support besides their daughter’s custody. Reportedly, Davis agreed to take care of her schooling and daycare tuition and pay up to $10k monthly as child support.

Gervonta Davis and Ariana Fletcher – The details of Davis’s on-and-off relationship with Instagram model and entrepreneur Ariana Fletcher soon started grabbing headlines. At one point of time in 2019, they became so popular that they were considered the internet’s favorite couple.? But later, the couple went through a very public split.

Gervonta Davis and Yaya – Gervonta Davis has been reported to have dated his mentor and promoter Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s daughter, Yaya. Though no longer together, their on-off relationship seems to have caught much attention. Sometimes, early in 2020, details of Davis and Yaya handcuffed by police also grabbed headlines.

Besides the above, Gervonta Davis’s name has also been associated with Dretta Star, Dess Dior, and Aillen Giellsele.

Lastly, the boxer also dated model and social media influencer Vanessa Posso. On Instagram, she enjoys a following of over half a million people. Additionally, she appears to be a successful businesswoman with her jewelry brand, RichGirlz. The couple also became parents to Giovanna Thalia in October 2021. It is still not known when they started dating, but they have broken up. Their relationship turned south ever since the Baltimore native was accused and eventually charged with causing bodily harm to Vanessa on the campus of the University of Miami in 2020. Although the case was finally dropped, the damage was done and they went their separate ways As things stand in 2024, Gervonta Davis (now Abdul Wahid)’s relationship status remains unconfirmed.

  Gervonta Davis’ Net Worth 2024

It’s natural for fans and followers to ask how much money Gervonta Davis has made through the years if boxing matches are his only source of income, or if he has other avenues that provide meaningful benefits to him and his family.

Gervonta Davis’s net worth hovers in the vicinity of $10 Million, according to Sports Arch.

While it would be difficult to calculate the exact amount he received for each match since he debuted, we have details of the money he made through a few recent bouts.

Reportedly, for the bout against Hector Luis Garcia, Tank received a guaranteed purse of $1.5 million besides a 60% share in the income generated through PPV sales.

Likewise, for his fight against Rolando Romero, his guaranteed purse amounted to $2 million, besides the 50% share in PPV earnings. Going back to 2021, for the December fight against Isaac Cruz, Tank’s guaranteed purse was $1 million, along with 60% of the split up done for PPV sales.

For the Mario Barrios fight in June of that year, his remuneration included the guaranteed purse of $1 million and a 60% share of the PPV revenue. For the fights against Leo Santa Cruz (2020), and Yuriorkis Gamboa (2019), his guaranteed purse stood at $1 million. However, the share of the income through PPV sales varied from 50% to 55%, respectively. However, Tank’s biggest payday came when he fought Ryan Garcia. The fight fetched him a guaranteed purse of $5 Million, according to Sports Payout. Of course, his earnings from the fight will be a lot more if we consider the 50-50 Pay Per View split.

Davis’ earnings through a few other matches fought in the years 2017 to 2019 are as follows:

Vs. Ricardo Nunez – Guaranteed purse, $750,000, PPV share – 60%;

Vs. Hugo Ruiz – Guaranteed purse – $500,000, PPV share – 50%;

Vs. Jesus Cuellar – Guaranteed purse – $400,000, PPV share – 50%;

Vs. Francisco Fonseca – Guaranteed purse – $600,000, PPV share – 55%;

Regarding endorsements, Baltimore, Maryland, headquartered Under Armour, is a company with which Davis is closely affiliated. The American sportswear giant signed the world champion in 2017. However, details about other brands he has partnered with for endorsements or sponsorships remain undisclosed.

Gervonta Davis’ Career Timeline

Gervonta Davis started boxing when he was five years old. His amateur career was outstanding. He became the National Golden Gloves champion in 2012. Before the feat, he was the National Silver Gloves champion.

Additionally, he went on to win two gold medals at the National Junior Olympics. If this was not enough, he became the National Police Athletic League and Ringside World champion twice! His amateur record was two hundred and six wins against only fifteen losses.

He professionally debuted against Desi Williams on February 22, 2013, and won the match convincingly with a first-round knockout. After that, he participated in sixteen bouts for three years, winning all but one through early stoppages.

Davis bagged his first world title, IBF Super Featherweight, on January 14, 2017, after knocking out Jose Pedraza in the seventh round at New York’s Barclays Center. He managed to defend it against Liam Walsh in May of that year but eventually lost it as he missed weight against Francisco Fonseca in their September fight.

By April 2018, he took home the subsequent title, the vacant WBA (Super) Super Featherweight, after a knockout victory over the Argentine Jesus Cuellar and defended it successfully till 2019.

Making his way up the weight divisions, he fought and defeated the Cuban Yurirokis Gamboa for the WBA (Regular) Lightweight title on December 28, 2019. Then, roughly a year later, on October 31, 2020, by knocking out the Mexican boxer Leo Santa Cruz in the sixth round, not only did he defend the WBA (Regular) Lightweight but won the WBA (Super) Super Featherweight also in turn.

On June 26, 2021, he met Mario Barrios at Atlanta, Georgia’s State Farm Arena, and netted the WBA (Regular) Super Lightweight title. Ever since, he has been defending it despite challenges from the likes of Isaac Cruz (December 5, 2021), Rolando Romero (May 28, 2022), and Hector Garcia on January 7, 2023.

Davis’ last fight was against Ryan Garcia and it went on to become the biggest PPV event of his career. ‘KingRy’ suffered his first career loss at the hands of Davis, the latter securing a stoppage win over the Victorville native with a liver shot in the seventh round.

The event generated a live gate of $22.8 million and roped in over $100 Million in revenue.

Overall, Gervonta Davis’  professional record stands at twenty-nine wins, of which 93% came through knockouts.

Gervonta Davis’ signature boxing techniques

Southpaw – Gervonta Davis is a Southpaw and has been observed to use a pawing jab against orthodox boxers. Defensively, it allows keeping a distance between himself and the opponents. For offensive purposes, Tank employs either a leading left hook or left straight punch to the body, especially when fighting against bigger foes.

Outstanding ring IQ – Time and again, Davis has proved to have an innate ability to read an opponent. A good example would be the fight against Leo Santa Cruz. Standing at five feet and six inches and a sixty-seven-and-a-half inch reach puts him in a disadvantageous position against bigger fighters.

So he smartly manages the range, sidestepping every attack the opponent throws. In his decade-long career, barely has there been an instance when Davis got hurt by shots thrown at him.

Strong right hand – Even though he is a perennial left-handed boxer, there’s no reason to doubt that Tank would be weak with his right hand. Though typically in the southpaw stance, his right hand would be in front to deflect the opponent’s incoming shots.?

However, as exemplified by the Leo Santa Cruz fights, he can use his right offensively to set the final shot with his left on either the face or body.

Pressure fighting style – Though Gervonta Davis could be equated as a switch-hitter, let there be no doubts about what he enjoys doing the most in the ring. He loves stalking his opponents and loosens up a barrage of punch combinations when the time comes.

It perplexes the foe into committing a blunder. That’s when Davis lands a fight-ending knockout blow like a classic pressure fighter.

Powerful lead hook – The southpaw stance requires Davis to keep his left hand back while using the right hand to land jabs and for defense. However, the style hasn’t deprived the Baltimorean to alternately use his lead hand for thrusting a hook, either to the body or face.

Often at a close range, he might need more time to chamber in the dominant left hand for that perfect hook. So instead, very intelligently, he shoots the hand most relative to the opponent. In most cases, it has been found that Tank’s opponents were barely prepared for such an onslaught.

Accurate puncher – It’s not enough if you know how to execute a punch. It should find its target to make it useful, else it’s nothing but a sheer waste of energy. Tank has often claimed that accuracy is the key to his power.

After all, for a boxer who has won 93% of his matches through knockouts, it’s relatively understandable the kind of precision he would have to stop twenty-seven opponents early in the fight!

Gervonta Davis’ Partnerships and Endorsements

The American sports apparel and accessories company based in Maryland, Under Armour, signed the boy from their hometown, Davis, in 2017 With that, ‘Tank’ joined the esteemed company of elite boxers like Anthony Joshua and Canelo Alvarez.

After signing ‘Tank’, the company’s senior vice president for global brand management, Adrienne Lofton told the Baltimore Sun, “Our I-95 billboards are our hometown heroes. We look for the next best talent all over the world. So being a young athlete from Baltimore, we knew about him.” 

To announce the partnership, Under Armor plastered Davis’ face across a couple of billboards embellished with the catchphrase – “Baltimore’s own”.

Apart from the Baltimore-based company, his other brand endorsements cannot be ascertained as of now.

Recognizing Davis’ efforts to invest in the community, City Council Nick Mosby said, “Tank, when he goes around the world, he literally carries the city of Baltimore on his back,” 

 “For you to come back, invest in your hometown, invest in your community, and invest in your block – is truly, truly special,” he added.

                 Gervonta Davis’ house

The Baltimore native bought a penthouse condominium at Silo Point in Locust Point last year for $3.4 million. He bought the splendid condominium from Baltimore developer Scott Plank.

Charlie Hatter, CEO and co-owner of Monumental Sotheby’s International Realty said he brokered the deal.  Davis had been looking for a new apartment, and Sotheby was happy enough to show him a video of the loft-style penthouse. Davis developed a liking for the stunning estate and was ready to seal the deal.

“Baltimore has nationally known celebrities and [I’m] glad to see them investing in Charm City,” Hatter said.

The upcoming June 15 fight between Gervonta Davis and Frank Martin is heavily assumed to be one-sided. However, ‘Tank’, majorly attributed as someone who can rarely be defeated faced trouble when he sparred with his next opponent. Could that be a matter of concern?

With just a little over a month left in his fight against the ‘Ghost’, Davis has kicked off the promotions for the fight. Their first press conference on May 4 went down with enough drama to last them till fight night. With Tank making references to Martin’s girlfriend and even crashing his interview leading to fist fights, the day was quite eventful. The same day, in another media interaction, Tank underscored that the fight won’t be as easy as most think it will be for him. After all, if Martin could faze him in a sparring session, why can’t he do the same on fight night?

Tank noted on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game Podcast, “You caught me one time.” He further remarked, “I sparred already; he was scared to spar. I jumped on him. He’s a southpaw. He threw the brick hand. Boom! That’s what caught me.” However, he did not let that incident govern his winning chances for June 15. He announced, “It wasn’t like, boom and… Hell no. Everybody in here know, if I get touched, I’m coming on that a**.” 

While it is unclear when this sparring session took the course, it is certain that Tank remembers every bit of it. While he was caught briefly in the said sparring session, there are chances he recuperated quickly.

Perhaps it’s the same sparring video Martin alluded to earlier in a media interaction. Martin revealed that Tank had urged to show him a video of “some” sparring, but ultimately didn’t show the full clip. Martin said, “Man, it’s sparring. We’re fighting June 15, I don’t even want to keep talking about the sparring. He was going to show me the video, he ain’t show it. He showed a certain part and then they got turned up and all that, but it wasn’t nothing that he showed.”

“We fighting now so the story of sparring, we can go ahead sweep that under the rug and when we fight June 15, it’s on,” Frank Martin added. Despite being the favorite, Gervonta Davis, the WBA Regular lightweight champion, can’t afford to overlook his opponent. Frank Martin boasts an impressive undefeated record of 18-0, with 12 of those victories coming by knockout.

While he remained confident that he would win, Tank was kind enough to give an important piece of advice to Frank Martin.

Don’t walk the path of Ryan Garcia, advises Gervonta Davis

Ahead of his fight against Devin Haney, Ryan Garcia showed the world that he was a regular drinker, with parties lasting days. However, when the fight arrived, he proved to those who assumed that his habits would make him lose big. He won through a knockout. Martin, who was earlier seen partying with Garcia, does not have that capacity, noted Tank.

In the same conversation, the Baltimore-based fighter advised his 29-year-old opponent, “You’ve been with Ryan(Garcia)..been drinking, been out with him partying. Do you have the skills to be out partying and missing(training)?! You don’t have the skills to be doing that. You started(boxing) when you was 15. If I started at 15..I’d be grinding(training all day). You trash!”


Mike Tyson is known to smoke we*d. If asked to recall an instance, perhaps a fan might go back to the smoke-filled studio of the ‘Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson’, the boxing great’s eponymous podcast. But how does that equate with 19 cigarettes? That too burned off in half an hour? If what Tom Segura told Shaquille O’Neal stands true, then seemingly the youngest heavyweight champion might have accomplished that feat as well.

But the revelation might prove a harbinger of further distress to many fans. They are already concerned as Mike Tyson prepares himself to take on the much younger Jake Paul. The duo are slated for a sanctioned professional fight with specific rules at Arlington’s AT&T Stadium on July 20. The co-host of ‘Your Mom’s House’ was on ‘The Big Aristotle’s show, ‘The Big Podcast With Shaq’. Over a laughter-filled discussion, he mentioned how the little bit of trivia about ‘Iron’ Mike unfolded.

So they met at an airport. The former heavyweight champion’s fearsome reputation had the stand-up comedian worried. “My heart stopped when I felt his hand grab my shoulder. I was like, and then he chatted me up about my show, and then he goes like, We’re coming to your show tonight, brother, and I was like, okay, and then he showed up like at a this is a comedy club,” he said.

Later, though finding it hard to believe initially, the club manager told him that Mike Tyson had arrived. Tom Segura said that throughout the show, he could never make out where Tyson sat. He could just make an assumption based on the loud smacking on the table audible from afar. Later, post-show, they met at the club’s aisle. Mike Tyson then asked if they could go to the green room.

So he took me to my green room; he goes in there, and then we just sit in the green room; he’s smokes like 19 cigarettes in in 25 minutes, and he’s just like, uh, you know, you got a window. I was like, it’s a little late for that bro like smoking and then he just hung out talked boxing,” said Segura.

However, he recalled how the whole incident saw him on the tenterhooks. But to many fans, this might come across as a surprise.

Going the Whole Length

Only recently did the former heavyweight champion make a stark confession. During an interview with Forbes, he talked about how he forced himself to abstain from smoking w*ed and physical intimacy.

He had been hard-disciplining himself away from such pleasure so that he could get back into his old beast mode when he entered the ring against Jake Paul. “It’s just discipline. You know, discipline is doing what you love to do what you love to do doing what you hate to do, but doing it like you love it. You know, I hate not being able to smoke. I’m doing it like I love it. I hate not to be able to sleep with my wife. I’m doing it like I love it.”

Thus, in light of the fresh insights, most of the fans would be hoping that he is back to his regimented ways to maintain optimum health. Smoking, for whatever it is, doesn’t bode well for a warrior who is aging but at the same willing to charge ahead against a boxer who is thirty years his junior.

In the world of boxing, the name Turki Alalshikh stands synonymous with a passionate dedication to organizing some of the most thrilling fights in the sport. From Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk to the much-anticipated Matchroom vs. Queensberry showdowns, Alalshikh has consistently aimed to provide boxing fans with unforgettable spectacles.

His latest endeavor was to stage a bout between Devin Haney and Gervonta Davis, promising an electrifying display of skill that would leave fans on the edge of their seats.

“But Haney I want to see in my country and I send message from you now to him,” he noted.

“I will try to do it in 2024. And Davis of course we want him in our country,”

However, negotiations hit a snag when Gervonta Davis, slated to face Frank Martin at the MGM Grand the following month, made an unexpected demand. Davis insisted on receiving not one, but two Ferraris as a condition for agreeing to Alalshikh‘s proposal.

Davis’ explanation

In a clever retort, Alalshikh stated that he would happily send Davis two gloves instead, should the boxer be serious about facing Haney and proving himself in the ring.

Now, Gervonta Davis has elaborated on his demand for two Ferraris, shedding light on his reasoning behind the unusual request.

“You know why I said that? Cause he was already talking like he was backing Devin,” Davis told the Cigar Talk Podcast.
