GERVONTA ‘TANK’ DAVIS is likely to face Roman ‘Rocky’ Martinez on the undercard of the Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather mega-fight.
Baltimore-born Davis has become one of the biggest stars in boxing after a meteoric rise in the last 18 months.
IBF super featherweight champion Gervonta Davis (18-0, 17 KOs) is expected to defend his title next against former 130 lb. champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez (29-3-3, 17 KOs) in a showcase fight on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor card on August 26. Martinez has been win-less since 2015.
Despite the 34-year-old Roman Martinez having good credentials as a former world champion, it’s not a great fight. This would have been an excellent fight if it took place in 2013 before Martinez was knocked out in the 8th round by Mikey Garcia.
Since that fight, Martinez’s career has been a mess with him being involved in two highly controversial fights with Orlando Salido and then losing his last fight against Vasyl Lomachenko by a 5th round knockout.
