THERE is something special about Gervonta Davis. He won the IBF super-featherweight title in electric style against Jose Pedraza and will defend it against Liam Walsh at the Copperbox in London on May 20.

“I think Liam Walsh is a great fighter. Me coming to the UK is exciting for me and my team. I’m ready to put on a great show,” Davis said. “I believe I’m home now. I’ve had a lot of UK feedback off my last fight. I’m ready to give my fans in the UK a great show.”

Gervonta is supported by mentor and promoter Floyd Mayweather. “It’s great to know that Floyd Mayweather believes in me, my team believe in me. I’m ready to show them there’s great things coming from me and I’m willing to sacrifice for them and me to get to that next level,” he said.
