Gervonta Davis, WBA’s ‘Regular’ champion at 135, revealed that his contract with Mayweather Promotions, the company that represented him until his last fight, has ended.
I’m just trying to put my own pants on: Gervonta Davis
During a conversation via Twitter Spaces hosted by @LazyLeftyOG, Davis made reference to cutting his employment relationship with the company owned by Floyd Mayweather Jr.
“First and foremost, [I have to give] love to Mayweather Promotions and all that they have done for me. But I am definitely out of my contract, for sure,” Davis said on the social media exchange. “It’s just a test run right now with this. You know what I mean. I’m on my own.”
“But much love to Mayweather Promotions, Leonard, Floyd, all the guys. I definitely appreciate them. I’m just doing my own thing now. That said, in the future, we can’t work together or anything like that. I’m just trying to put my own pants on,” he added.
‘Tank’ Davis joined Mayweather Promotions back in 2015, two years before he became IBF super featherweight champ and went on to hold world titles across three divisions. Currently, he is set to defend his WBA Regular lightweight belt against Hector Garcia on 7th January, followed by a catchweight bout against grudge rival Ryan Garcia on 15th April.
“Floyd is out [just] doing him. He’s always been like that. Do you know what I mean? I have to focus on what I can focus on,” Davis went on, “He already did what he had to do. I’m not going to lie. If I did what he did in the sport, I’d be the same way. I don’t fault him for staying to himself. But it’s also a type of thing like, come back and help too. But much love to Mayweather Promotions. It’s no bad blood.”
Many people are surprised by the things that Gervonta Davis posts on his social networks regarding termination letter and apparent disses on his final days with the promotion, the boxer says its all part of the talk.
“A lot of people think when I’m tweeting, I’m mad. But I’m just talking. I’m tweeting because I’m in camp. I’m angry. If I weren’t in camp, I wouldn’t be tweeting,” he concluded. [H/T WBN]
