As we reported earlier, ex-world champion in super-featherweight division American Gervonta Davis commented on a potential duel with Ukrainian lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko in a quite defiant style.

Lomachenko? His time is coming to an end, but mine is not,” Gervonta said.

“I believe that our fight will take place, but at the right time. No offense. I respect his achievements, but I do not respect the fact that he is being extolled. He has achieved nothing in this world. He has fourteen fights and he is already a franchised champion,” he stressed.
