Across his professional boxing career, Gervonta Davis has revealed himself to be one of the greatest knock out artists in the sport ever.

The undefeated WBA (Regular) lightweight and the WBA (Super) super featherweight champion has clinched 23 out of his 24 career wins via KO and will face e WBA (Regular) super lightweight title champion Mario Barrios on 26th June.

Surely, any boxing fan would think that ‘Tank’ will break no sweat if he is pitted against YouTuber Logan Paul inside the ring, to give him a taste of how a proper knock from a proper boxer feels like.

But surprisingly, in Davis’ own words, he is unsure about a task his fans would see as a walk in the park.

Logan Paul is big as hell: Gervonta Davis doubts his knockout abilities against YouTuber

One of the top lightweight boxers in the world right now, Gervonta Davis is called “Mini Mike Tyson” by the fans for his knockout prowess., but none other than his mentor Floyd Mayweather thinks Davis has a touch of Manny Pacquiao in him as well.

Being addressed as a mix between “Iron Mike” and “PacMan”, its certain that even someone like Mayweather himself believes that Davis possesses the ability to jab any boxer into the shadow realm, and a YouTuber with two fight appearances is a piece of cake for him.

However, Davis feels that Paul’s sheer size can prevent him from knocking him out, even though the two division champion southpaw has KO’ed other heavyweights in the past.

“He’s (Logan Paul) big as hell,” Davis revealed to Elie Seckbach of EsNews“He’s like bigger than them heavyweights so, I don’t know.”

Well, Logan did surprise the boxing fandom after he survived all eight rounds against Mayweather in their blockbuster exhibition fight on 6th June, a fight which neither saw any knockouts nor a determined winner, making Logan the first and only boxer ever to not let Mayweather walk out as the winner.

Although “Mini Mike Tyson” Davis may have second thoughts about his chances against Logan, the latter is cent per cent sure that he can secure a win against the real Iron Mike, if they were to fight next.

“Someone mentioned Mike Tyson,” Logan recently said on his podcast Impaulsive“My lawyer mentioned it and he’s like, ‘Nah, Tyson will rip your head off, you don’t stand a chance.’ I’m like, ‘I just went through all this.’ You can’t tell me I can’t beat Mike Tyson. He’s old, old.”
