It is unclear who Gervonta Davis will share the ring with in his next fight, but it is become increasingly clear who his next opponent will not be. Despite potentially having the opportunity to compete for the undisputed men’s lightweight title, Gervonta Davis’ promoters don’t think a fight against George Kambosos in Australia is sensible. During a recent media sessions, Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza said that a Davis would be a potential opponent for Kambosos only if the fight was in the United States of America.
“Look, I’d love to see that fight, but Australia doesn’t make no sense,” Espinoza said, according to Boxing News 24.
“I mean, it doesn’t. If they want to put up the same kind of money that is generated here [in the U.S], then the fight can happen. The business determines things like that.”
A fight between Kambosos and Davis may be possible down the line, but the undisputed lightweight champion has repeatedly said that his next fight will be in Australia.
If Davis removes himself from the conversation, other potential opponents include Devin Haney and Vasiliy Lomachenko. Haney last fought against Joseph Diaz Jr. on December 4 in Las Vegas. He earned a unanimous decision victory in a tough, competitive fight. Elsewhere, Vasiliy Lomachenko is set to fight Richard Commey later tonight.
