Frank Martin is confident of winning the upset victory in his clash against WBA ‘regular’ lightweight champion Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis on June 15th.

That would be a massive victory for Martin, and you can’t rule it out. Tank has been inactive, and he’s not fought anyone as polished as Martin during his career.

The Errol Spence Jr.-promoted Martin wants to crash the party and make Tank Davis and his management regret that they chose him for a voluntary defense.

Martin (18-0, 12 KOs) and Tank (29-0, 27 KOs) are getting a late start in promoting their fight, as it’s been quiet until this week.

Ideally, the two should have been giving more interviews for the last month and hitting it hard on social media to drive interest the way we saw when Ryan Garcia fought Tank Davis last year. Ryan did most of the work in building interest in the fight, and did good numbers on PPV.

We’ll see how Tank vs. Martin does in their match on PBC Pay-Per-View via Prime Video at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The undercard is stacked with these excellent fights:

– David Benavidez vs. Oleksandr Gvozdyk
– Gary Antuanne Russell vs. Alberto Puello
– Carlos Adames vs. Terrell Gausha

Martin Unfazed by Davis’ Tactics

“I see me being victorious. Me going out and being me and being who I am. Not letting Tank’s little distractions that he try to throw fighters off with. Not letting them get to me. Just me going out and being who I am. I’m going to come out with my hand raised,” said Frank Martin during Instagram live, discussing his prediction for his fight against WBA ‘regular’ lightweight champion Gervonta Davis on June 15th on PBC Pay-Per-View Event on Prime Video.

Tank, 29, isn’t the type that normally plays a lot of mind games with his opponents, but Martin isn’t in the mood to be toyed with even in the slightest by him. He’s all business and just wants to get in the ring and throw down.

Frank has been waiting for this opportunity to challenge for a world title long enough and wants to make the most of it. Martin’s recent wins over Artem Harutyunyan and Michel Rivera have put him in a position to get this fight.

A New Face in the 135 Division

“You guys can see an explosive good fight. Y’all will see a new face in the 135 division come June 15th,” said Martin.

“It’s going to be a great show. I’m looking for my boy to put on a great performance and show everybody why he’s the best 135-pounder in boxing,” said Errol Spence Jr. about his fighter Frank Martin.
