I don’t think anyone in their target market posts on this forum if that’s the case. Why wouldn’t he try and just get Davis proper fights? We can all see he’s extremely good, there are only a few guys who’d have any chance of beating him, let’s see em? Floyd didn’t have the luxury of fucking around like this for many, many years when he was fighting.
    He had a chance at a name fight, which is what got him his check not the replacement opponent as Fenster tries to make it appear, he lost that opportunity to build his brand. So now he has an opponent that nobody cares about. Was his fight last weekend or the weekend before? I forget because who cares. Yet here we are talking about Davis. Name is still out there, we don’t get what’s happening here?

    Why don’t you just say what you’re really thinking. Anyone who has been here any length of time has caught on. Just say it.
    I'll make it easy for you to understand - Star Wars? Now check this shit - those movies are about how the white man keeps the brother-man down--even in a galaxy far far away. You got cracker farmboy Luke Skywalker, Nazi poster boy blond hair blue eyes. Then you got Darth Vader, blackest brother in the galaxy. Nubian god!

    Now. Vader, he's a spiritual brother, down with the force and all that good shit. Then this cracker Skywalker gets his hands on a lightsaber, and the boy decides HE'S gonna run the whole fucking universe! Gets a whole KLAN of whites together and they go bust up Vader's hood, the Death Star! Now what the fuck do you call that? GENTRIFICATION!!!

    They gonna drive out the black element to make the galaxy quote-unquote safe for white folks! In "Jedi," the most insulting installment, Vader's beautiful black visage is SULLIED when he pulls off his mask to reveal a feeble, crusty old white man! They trying to tell us that deep inside, the black man wants to be WHITE!!!

    So what i'm really thinking is - the chickens are coming home to roost, y'all. The black man is no longer going to be playing the minstrel in the medium of sports and entertainment. They keeping it real! And going to get respect by any means necessary.

    So was Vader guilty of really using a form of black face?

    I’m not at all surprised. When Broner is your best friend it is really telling about the kind of person you are

    Gervonta Davis next fight: Young star reportedly planned for July 27 in Baltimore – Yuriorkis Gamboa and Ricardo Nunez potential opponents

    The WBA super-featherweight champion is heading for a homecoming defence

    Gervonta Davis’ second bout of 2019 is being plotted for July 27 at the Royal Farms Arena in his hometown of Baltimore, according to reports.

    The two-time super-featherweight titlist knocked out late replacement opponent Hugo Ruiz within one round on February 9 and is looking to get back out again relatively quickly.

    It’s claimed by BoxingScene that 37-year-old former unified champion Yuriorkis Gamboa is being ‘seriously considered’ as the opponent for Davis.

    However a mandatory defence against Ricardo Nunez is also possible.



    Initially, Gervonta Davis was the IBF super-featherweight champion – taking the title from Jose Pedraza in January 2017.

    After coming to London to stop Liam Walsh in his first defence, ‘Tank’ then lost this belt as he came in overweight against Francisco Fonseca, who he knocked out the following day.

    Last year, Gervonta received the opportunity to fight for a version of the WBA title and won it by thrashing Jesus Cuellar.

    He was then out of the ring for ten months until his last bout against Ruiz and so hopes to remain active and compete at least three times in 2019.

    I am not interested in his fights at this point unless he is going to be fighting a top opponent.

    Feels like a guy who just lost a bigger name fight in his last start should look to make one next time out. Pole axing unknown Nunez who is stil fighting 8 rounders will satisfy only the mandatory not the fans. Gamboa brings a name but talk about an erratic less fulfilled career and oddly Davis is giving off some similar vibes.

    Right. They are playing the long game but I don’t think Davis has the mentality for it. Talent fades, fundamentals stand the test of time. Kid is talented, shoot for the stars and see where you land. But no, that’s not the sport. They’ll give 3 years of crap fights before 1 we want.

    Wow Gamboa would have provided an amazing war six or seven years ago, probably before he pulled out of the Brandon Rios fight. But now...

    I don't mind a few stay-busy fights as long as he faces Lomachenko in the not-too-distant future, and for the moment it doesn't give me the feeling he'll end up wasting too much time like Yuriorkis did. He's still 24 so let's hope...

    With Gamboa we don't know who was controlling his career really. Wasn't it Puig the Cuban baseball player who was basically held hostage when he left Cuba and sold to the highest bidder.? Maybe something like that happened to Gamboa and he had to pay somebody a chunk of his earnings. It kinds looks like he was managed by somebody who was just looking for a payday. He signed with that idiot rapper that rurned out to have no money and couldn't make a deal with another promoter for any decent fights and then spent years out of the ring for whatever reason.

    Davis just seems similar to Broner. He's better to watch though but the fights they're making for him are awful. Considering Haymon is promoting him that would seem to be by design rather than by accident. Something is wrong somewhere even apart from the stuff we know about.
