“I’m against Gervonta – this fight will take place within the next five years,” O’Malley said in the next episode of his podcast. “I swear I can knock him out in a boxing match. I really believe in it. At 135 pounds, I’ll knock him out.”

Recall that the title fight, which led the boxing evening in New York last weekend, ended at around 2:39 of the sixth round after Davis met the opponent with an accurate backhand and knocked Romero down, which eventually became a technical knockout.

Sean O’Malley, 27, is on a three-fight streak and will face Brazil’s Pedro Munoz on July 2 at UFC 276 in Las Vegas.
