Gervonta Davis: “The Four Kings, Who Can Actually Draw People? Me”

By: Hans Themistode Once upon a time, boxing was considered to be in a golden era. Leading the way were "Sugar" Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Roberto Duran, and last but certainly not least - Thomas Hearns. At various points throughout their careers, the four laced up their gloves and fought each other in the ring. More than anything, due to their otherworldly skills and vast accomplishments, they were intrinsically tied together and known as the “Four Kings.” In today’s day and age, Gervonta Davis, Ryan Garcia, Teofimo Lopez, and Devin Haney are now considered the “Four Kings” of this era. While they’re all viewed as incredibly talented and future ambassadors of the sport, Davis is of the belief that his star power shines brighter than them all. “The four kings, who can actually draw people?” Questioned Davis to a group of reporters. “Who do they really want to watch? Me. Everybody calls me out because they want money, they want fame.” On December 5th, later this year, Davis will look to put approximately 20,000 butts in seats when he takes on Rolando “Rolly” Romero at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Presently, Davis is confident that he’ll produce another sold-out event. In the case of his fellow young contemporaries, Davis doubts their ability to pack arenas and sell pay-per-views. Davis, 26, has particularly taken aim at Teofimo Lopez and his supposed star appeal. The unified 135-pound titlist is currently scheduled to return to the ring one week before Davis on November 27th, at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden in New York City. News of Lopez headlining an event at the much smaller Hulu Theater, a venue that holds approximately 5,600 fans, as opposed to the Garden’s big room, a locale that hosts upwards of 20,000 people, was laughable to Davis. In an act to debunk the notion that Lopez is some sort of star, Davis rips into his fellow young rival. “He can’t even sell tickets. He about to fight in New York and that only holds what? 4,000? Tell him to sell some tickets then holla at me, bum ass n*gga.” The post Gervonta Davis: “The Four Kings, Who Can Actually Draw People? Me” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Tyson Fury Sends Deontay Wilder A (Sincere) Birthday Message

By: Sean Crose "This is a very special Happy Birthday message to me old mate Deontay 'The Bronze Bomber' Wilder. Have a fantastic day, Wilder. Thank you for the great fights that we had, the trilogy. Great, great fighter. Awesome fighter, and I hope you have a fantastic day with you and your family and I hope that God blesses you abundantly. All the best. Lots of love, from your old pal, the Gypsy King. All the best. God bless, Wilder."   https://twitter.com/i/status/1451572462672617478 They may be the biggest ring enemies this side of Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, but things finally seem to be cooling down after the third fight between WBC and lineal heavyweight king Tyson Fury and arch rival (and former WBC king) Deontay Wilder. Just weeks after their instant classic of a bout, Fury took to social media on Friday to speak directly to his former foe, who had just turned 36. Things have come a long way from where they were a short time ago. After meeting for the first time in 2018, where their battle was ruled a controversial draw, the two men met again in early 2020. Fury made easy work of the brutally hard hitting American the second time around, stopping Wilder in the seventh. Wilder made all kinds of wild accusations against Fury, and even his own team, afterwards...all of which showcased a considerable amount of bad blood. By the time the third battle rolled around, the two super sized heavyweights appeared to be the furthest things from friends. Fortunately for fans, that third match itself was explosive. Fury dropped Wilder in the third, only to have Wilder drop him twice in the fourth. The battle raged on until Fury knocked his arch rival down again in the tenth, then did so once more in eleventh, leading the referee to finally step in and end the war in Fury's favor. Wilder refused to make peace with Fury immediately after the match, but a few days later did so warmly via social media. That, coupled with Friday's Birthday Greeting, may mean the bad blood has finally vanished. They may never be the best of friends, but Fury's and Wilder's names will forever be synonymous with each other. It only makes sense that the two colorful fighters try to make the best of it. Plus, the trilogy they both took part of has been a gift to fight fans...something else the outspoken former opponents have in common.
