new member International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) conqueror of two weight divisions and current boxing commentator on ESPN channel American Timothy Bradley went hard on compatriot Gervonte Davis (28-0, 26 KOs) – WBA World lightweight champion.
thinksthat Davis is not a man at all, but “just a piece of shit. Really I think so. If you allow yourself to raise your hand against a woman, then you automatically turn into shit. What kind of a man are you then? I don’t know how it could be otherwise. I was brought up like that. I was told from childhood that if you raise your hand against someone who cannot defend himself, then you are just a coward.
Bradley talks about an incident that happened in December. Davis was arrested, accused of domestic violence – he allegedly beat the mother of his child. The lady later retracted her accusations. Bradley was not convinced: “What difference does it make what happened next? This dude has enough money to bribe anyone. He’s trying to whiten his reputation now with a toothbrush. Dude, you can afford to buy an entire toothbrush company. But I’m not an idiot. I saw the video, his voice is heard in the background. He is a good fighter, but as a person… Not very…”
Bradley hopes that Davis’ fight with compatriot puncher Ryan Garcia will still take place. And he does not bet on the favorite: “The question is, is Ryan ready? He already knows what it’s like to be on the canvas of the ring. Garcia has his perks. Dimensions and excellent striking power. In this confrontation, I will root for him. And I want him to win, because I’m definitely not a fan of Tank. I speak as it is. I don’t like the way this guy behaves outside the ring. I don’t know if he wants to fight Ryan. But I hope Garcia knocks that asshole out. I hope he will invest in his punches and put Gervonta in his place.”
Bradley believes that Garcia “stylistically has a lot of mistakes and vulnerabilities. Let’s see if he can fix this. But he has a chance. And those are good chances. Not only does he have puncher chance, but he also has speed, quick hands, sharp punches. He is young and fresh. What exactly are the errors? No, no, that’s not going to work. He has a coach. And I don’t get paid for it. Let the jambs eliminate the one who is paid for this work.
According to the reviewer, “Al Haymon and Floyd Mayweather did a solid job of turning Gervonta into a star. Now it’s time to take care of the legacy. That is, to accept those same fights, fights of the level of a member IBHOF. I think that’s what he needs to think about now. After all, I think he wants to remain forever in the memory of people. Money is good. But be kind, fight at least with someone worthy. Take part at least once in a duel in which there will be no clear favorite. Take a risk for once. Try for once to give the fans what they want.”
Meanwhile, Ryan Garcia fears that the fight with Davis will fall through due to his problems with the law, and his promoter even delivered an ultimatum to Gervonta’s mysterious patron.
A little earlier, promoter Eddie Hearn called Davis a “moonhead” and compared him to Mike Tyson, for which he was immediately declared a racist. Later, Gervonta showed the correspondence with the promoter: photo.
