Keyshawn Davis wants a fight against Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis to show fans how good he is. He says Tank disrespected him on DMs, and he wants to fight.

Tank’s Silence Fuels Keyshawn’s Fire

#3 WBC-ranked Keyshawn’s name wasn’t mentioned by Tank Davis when he discussed three of the fighters he’s interested in fighting next in November.

Keyshawn (10-0, 7 KOs) has a problem because he’s not been in the pro ranks long enough to be considered a viable option for Tank Davis or any of the top guys at 135 or 140. He needs to get more experience for Tank to consider him.

It would help if Keyshawn fought his former conqueror, Andy Cruz, to avenge his losses from his amateur days. Cruz’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has been quite vocal about wanting to make a fight between them, and it looks bad that Keyshawn isn’t accepting that offer.

Stepping Up the Competition

For Keyshawn to get Tank or the other champions to consider him for a world title shot, he needs to start fighting quality opposition because he’s been taking the easy route, and normally, you don’t see that with a fighter with Olympic experience like him.

“I feel like I got the whole package. I’m bigger, I’m younger, I’m just as fast, and I’m strong,” said Keyshawn Davis to the Sean Zittel YouTube channel about wanting to fight Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis.

Keyshawn is coming off of a sixth-round knockout win over 35-year-old Jose Pedraza last February. That was a step down in competition for the 2016 Olympic silver medalist Keyshawn from his previous fight against Nahir Albright, which was ruled a ten-round no-contest due to Davis testing positive for marijuana.

Originally, it was a narrow 10-round majority decision for Keyshawn. He did not perform well in that fight, getting hurt by Albright and out-punched down the stretch. Albright used the same high-pressure style that Andy Cruz employed to dominate him in rounds six through ten.

“I don’t give a f***. I still want to fight you. I feel like when it comes down to me and him, this is the best match-up that you can get in the 135-lb division,” said Keyshawn. “It only takes one fight against Teofimo or Berinchyk for y’all to say, ‘Keyshawn is ready.’ I’ve been telling you I’m ready [for Tank].

“I still want to fight you. We got a little bit of history. We are going to fight whenever you want to make it happen,” said Keyshawn about Tank.
