Gervonta Davis has been shooting from the lip once again, threatening to “break” Vasyl Lomachenko.
Right now, WBA Lightweight Champion Lomachenko has more important things to worry about, such as his huge unification fight against WBO title holder Jose Pedraza at New York’s Madison Square Garden on December 8th, live on BoxNation.
Unbeaten Davis delivered his chilling message to the Ukrainian superstar when a fan's tweet told him “Loma [is] your greatest nightmare”.
The controversial American hit back replying: “Nah he not. I will break him...actually my biggest fear is thinking someone my friend and they end up .... me over petty money.”

Many fans might dismiss Davis as a credible threat to the man many consider the world’s pound-for-pound king. But, Lomachenko has refused to write off a showdown with the trash talking WBA Super-Featherweight Champion.
In the summer when the fight was first mooted, Lomachenko said he would be willing if Davis moved up to the 135lb Lightweight division and believed it has US pay-per-view potential.
Davis, 23, might only stand 5ft 5.5in tall, but he has already had problems making the 130lb limit.
He was stripped of his IBF belt on the scales in August 2017 when he missed weight for his defence against Francisco Fonseca, who he knocked out in eight rounds.
'Tank', who has won all his 20 fights, did make weight for his WBA Title win in April when he hammered Argentinian Jesus Marcelo Andres Cuellar inside three rounds.
Lomachenko is also targeting WBC Lightweight Champion Mikey Garcia, but if that failed to materialise should he come through Pedraza, a clash with Davis would still be a big attraction.
But in the meantime, Loma is at his American training camp fully focused on Pedraza.
