Floyd Mayweather protege Gervonta Davis is hoping to face Tevin Farmer if he wins the vacant IBF Super-Featherweight Title.
Davis hopes to settle their long-running rivalry in what would be an intriguing unification at 130lbs, but first Farmer must beat Billy Dib in Sydney, Australia, live on BoxNation this Friday.
Last year, Davis held the same IBF belt after beating Jose Pedraza and defending it against Liam Walsh, but he was stripped in August after failing to make weight for his next defence.
If Tevin win this weekend I’m willing to fight asap if not I’m going to 135— Gervonta Davis (@Gervontaa) August 1, 2018
In April the Baltimore southpaw won the WBA Super-Featherweight crown after crushing Jesus Cuellar in three rounds in New York. The other World Titles are held by Miguel Berchelt (WBC) and Masayuki Ito (WBO).
If the Farmer fight cannot be made, Davis tweeted that he would move up to Lightweight to join the likes of Vasyl Lomachenko and Mikey Garcia.
