Beginning of a Journey


Affectionately known as “Tank” for his imposing presence in the ring. At the tender age of seven, Davis found solace and purpose within the walls of The Upton Boxing Center’s gym, under the guidance of his mentor, Calvin Ford. It was here, amidst the sweat and grit of the gym, that Davis discovered his true calling—a calling that would shape the course of his life forever.


Under Ford’s watchful eye, Davis honed his skills and unleashed his untapped potential, embarking on a stellar amateur career that saw him capture multiple national titles and championships. But amid the triumphs, tragedy struck close to home, as Davis mourned the loss of friends and fellow boxers to the unforgiving streets of Baltimore.


Interest in Davis


Determined to honor the legacy of those who had fallen, Davis forged ahead, his eyes fixed on the ultimate prize that lay beyond the horizon. In February 2013, at the age of 18, Davis made his professional debut in spectacular fashion, delivering a blistering 89-second knockout that served as a harbinger of things to come.


Over the next few years, Davis blazed a trail of destruction through the ranks of his opponents, rattling off eight consecutive victories, all by way of knockout. With each triumph, he announced his arrival as a force to be reckoned with in the boxing world, his speed, power, and accuracy leaving a trail of devastation in its wake.


But it was on January 14, 2017, that Davis etched his name into the annals of boxing history, as he dismantled the previously undefeated Jose Pedraza to capture the IBF world super featherweight title. At just 22 years old, Davis became America’s youngest reigning champion—a feat that catapulted him into the spotlight and solidified his status as a rising star in the sport.


Davis’ meteoric rise continued unabated as he defended his title in thrilling fashion, scoring a third-round TKO over Liam Walsh in front of a raucous crowd in England. With each victory, Davis’ legend grew, his ferocity and determination captivating audiences around the world.


Yet, for all his success inside the ring, Davis remained grounded in his roots, determined to uplift his community and inspire the next generation of fighters. His triumphant return to Baltimore in July 2019, where he defended his title in front of a sold-out crowd at the Royal Farms Arena, served as a testament to his unwavering commitment to his hometown.


But it was Davis’ electrifying knockout victory over Leo Santa Cruz on October 31, 2020, that catapulted him into superstardom. With a single left uppercut in the sixth round, Davis delivered the KO of the Year, sending shockwaves through the boxing world and cementing his status as one of the sport’s most exciting and dynamic talents.


As Davis continued to dominate his opponents with an iron fist, he set his sights on new challenges and horizons. In June 2021, he moved up to 140 pounds and scored a scintillating 11th round TKO over Mario Barrios to capture the WBA Super Lightweight Championship, becoming a three-division world champion in the process.


“Tank” didn’t rest on his laurels, though. In December 2021, he faced Isaac Cruz in a thrilling back-and-forth battle that saw him emerge victorious with a rousing 12-round unanimous decision, retaining his WBA Lightweight World Title in front of a star-studded crowd at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.


And just when it seemed like Davis had reached the pinnacle of his career, he raised the bar even higher. On May 28, 2022, he squared off against long-time rival Rolando “Rolly” Romero at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, delivering a stunning knockout in the sixth round that left fans and celebrities alike in awe.


Knockouts Galore


In a thrilling start to 2023, Gervonta Davis faced off against his toughest adversary yet, Hector Luis Garcia, on January 7th. Garcia, the undefeated World Super Featherweight Champion, had established himself as one of boxing’s most formidable talents, earning recognition as a Fighter of the Year contender in 2022.


The highly anticipated showdown, broadcasted on SHOWTIME Pay-Per-View, not only showcased Davis’s boxing prowess but also set a new record for ticket revenue at the Capital One Arena, surpassing even legendary acts like the Rolling Stones. With a packed house of 19,731 fans, Davis, hailing from Baltimore, once again demonstrated his drawing power by selling out arenas across major cities like Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, and Washington, D.C.


Inside the ring, Davis left no doubt about his skills, delivering another memorable performance by defeating Garcia in the ninth round. Employing his trademark left hand, Davis systematically dismantled Garcia before delivering a decisive blow in the eighth round. Despite Garcia’s valiant effort, his trainer made the decision to halt the fight, securing Davis yet another victory.


Looking ahead, Davis eagerly anticipated his upcoming bout with Ryan Garcia scheduled for April. Positioned as a battle between two rising stars, the clash promised to be a highlight of the boxing calendar, with Davis poised to assert his dominance once again.


Fast forward to April 22, 2023, the highly anticipated matchup between Davis and Ryan Garcia took center stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. With the title of boxing’s face on the line, Davis emerged victorious, stopping Garcia with a devastating body shot in the seventh round.


Reflecting on his journey, Davis expressed gratitude for the opportunity to headline such a prestigious event, reminiscent of watching his idol Floyd Mayweather at the MGM Grand. With his sights set on further success, Davis remained committed to his craft, knowing that true fulfillment lay in continued dedication and hard work.
