March 21st, 2024

Boxing fans have been eagerly awaiting news of Gervonta "Tank" Davis' return to the ring after his dominant win over Ryan Garcia last April. With almost a year out, speculation has swirled about Gervonta Davis next fight. Potential opponents like Teofimo Lopez, Devin Haney, and even Conor Benn have been mentioned, but no official announcement has been made.

Gervonta Davis Next Fight: A Year Out and Still a Mystery

However, a recent Instagram post by Davis has sparked rumors of a much-anticipated rematch. The photo featuring Gervonta Davis fight with Garcia has many believing a second showdown could be in the works. However, the timeline presents a challenge. Ryan Garcia has a fight scheduled against Devin Haney on April 20th. This would leave him with a very short window, just over two months, to recover and prepare for another grueling fight against Gervonta Davis. It seems unlikely that Garcia would be physically ready for a rematch in June.

So, if it's not Garcia, who will Davis face? One thing seems certain: June is shaping up to be the month for Davis' return. Additionally, based on the geolocation tag on his Instagram post, Houston appears to be the chosen location. This wouldn't be Gervonta Davis first fight in Texas. He defeated Leo Santa Cruz in San Antonio back in October 2020. However, it would be his Houston debut. Interestingly, Ryan Garcia's most recent fight, against Oscar Duarte, took place at the Houston Toyota Center.

Davis Set for June But Opponent Remains Unknown

With the rematch seemingly off the table due to timing constraints, boxing enthusiasts will have to wait and see who Davis steps into the ring with come June. Whether it's a familiar face or a fresh challenge, one thing is for sure: Gervonta Davis' return to the ring in Houston is sure to be a highly anticipated event.
