Gervonta Davis Wiki – Biography

Gervonta Davis is an American professional boxer. He is a two-time world champion, having held the IBF super featherweight title in 2017, and the WBA (Super) super featherweight title from 2018 to 2019.

Gervonta Davis could tell early on that Yuriorkis Gamboa wouldn’t go down easily, so Davis decided to be patient and wear him down.

‘I wasn’t pressing for the knockout,’ Davis said. ‘Once I seen I was hurting him and he wasn’t getting out of there, I just had to touch him up and win the rounds.’ Davis stayed unbeaten in his career with a 12th-round stoppage of Gamboa to win a lightweight title Saturday night.

Gervonta Davis Professional career

Davis made his debut at the age of 18 on February 22, 2013, against Desi Williams, who had a professional record of no wins and 4 losses, all by stoppage. The fight took place at the D.C. Armory in Washington on the undercard of the IBF junior-welterweight fight between Lamont Peterson and Kendall Holt. Davis won the bout via 1st round knockout. By August 2014, Davis had recorded 8 wins and no losses, with all wins coming inside the distance. Davis was taken the six-round distance for the first time in October 2014 against veteran 28-year-old German Meraz (47–31–1, 25 KOs). Davis knocked Meraz down in rounds 3 and 5, and went on to win a unanimous decision, winning all rounds on the three scorecards (60–52, 60–52, 60–52).

Gervonta Davis Final Fight against Yuriorkis Gamboa

Davis, becoming a two-division champion in his adopted hometown, dropped Gamboa three times. He landed a left hand to knock the veteran down in the final seconds of the eighth, bringing fans in the lower bowl at the sold-out State Farm arena to their feet.

‘I showed I’m an elite fighter,’ Davis said. ‘I’m not trying to rush it and get him out of there and wind up getting caught. That was my main focus going in. Not trying to rush it. Touch him up and show the people I have skills.’

Atlanta rapper Lil Baby performed alongside Davis as he made his entrance for the main event. It didn’t take long for Davis to energize the fans, using a double-jab and a left hand to drop Gamboa at the 1:36 mark of the second.

At 25, Davis is entering his prime and moving up to lightweight for the first time. He gave the 38-year-old a beating in the fifth with left uppercuts, but the Cuban had plenty of punch resistance.
