JAY Z Praises Tank Davis In His Latest Rap

Gervonta Davis reacted to rapper Jay Z mentioning his name during a live concert. 

Davis is one of the most prominent boxers around. He took part in the highest-grossing boxing event of 2023 when he faced Ryan Garcia. Tank knocked out Garcia in the seventh round with a body shot to make himself the ‘face of boxing.’ The bout sold over 1.2 million PPV buys and generated a gate of over $20 million. He has not boxed since then after having gotten himself in legal trouble. 

He was arrested for breaking the terms of his house arrest in relation to a hit-and-run incident. That meant Davis served the remainder of his sentence in jail. Now that he is out, he is set to face Frank Martin in the summer. Martin is an undefeated southpaw, which will test Davis’ skills as he defends his WBA Lightweight Title.

It will also be broadcast on Amazon Prime PPV following PBC’s multi-year deal with the platform. By the looks of it, Davis is already a crossover star. The following footage shows JAY Z rapping live. He can be heard saying the following: “Face keeps popping up, On the tube, I am just watching Tank box him up.”

This is not the first time that JAY Z has mentioned the boxer. Prior to Davis walking out for the Ryan Garcia fight, the rapper mentioned some words of inspiration over some clips of Davis’ career. The video shows Davis throughout his boxing career as Jay Z can be heard saying the following comments: 

“Everything in life is for your greatest good. No matter how difficult it seemed at the time, everything is for your greatest good. Just teaching you discipline so you can receive your blessing. See, I’m from the bottom, from the mud.

“It don’t matter if you from Brooklyn or from Baltimore, all that matters is that you believe in yourself when no one else will. Any time you want something in life, you gotta set your intention. When you set your intentions, you believe that shit in your soul, 100 percent. It’s gonna happen for you, I promise.”

Davis has come a long way. However, one criticism often levelled against him is the level of opposition he has faced. Fights with Devin Haney and Shakur Stevenson have been mentioned, but nothing has been made. They are champions in and around Davis’ weight class.

However, the fact that they are with different promoters has hindered things. There is also the perception that Davis is uninterested in fighting for legacy. Boxers have been accused of sacrificing their legacy to generate the most money. Davis may reach a point where he may have no choice but to face the big names.
